Sorry, I don't recall which exact "Genus" I posted a message in when this occurred.  

it does seem as though there is something wrong with "the clock" with respect to recording when posts are made.  For example, I just went to my Profile page to try to look for the message I just mentioned.  I noticed that "My Threads" on my Profile page claims I made a posting to "Iris 2013" in FAmily/Genus/Species "14 hours, 59 minutes ago" ; however, I actually did the posting on June 1st (not 14 hours ago - more like 28 days ago), according to the date stamp on in the thread.  (Since the photo I posted in that thread was taken on May 29th, the date stamp of June 1st which is on the thread is correct.)

I haven't really looked at the "My Threads" section on the my Profile page, to assess accuracy.  What you report , doing a posting on "June 1st (not 14 hours ago)", sounds like an error artifact from the forum database migration, that it can't really gauge time because of the migration.  Maybe these features work on *new* posts created under the Drupal environment, and give anomalous results when working with imported data from a different forum system.

Yes, perhaps this is something different entirely.  Don't know enough about these things to have a clue (needless to say)!

Is this what you mean by "last post" on the Forum home page?

Great to see that we now have a "read reply later" function. Very useful indeed, smiley

Yes, this is an excellent development.  The reason why I am replying to this now, 6 days after you replied, is because I've been using the "read reply later" function!
