Individual post's title should not overtake the thread's title

This page was opened using a "permalink" to an individual post, which apparently has its own title, although that is never displayed in the posts view of the thread. The title used in html's head (thus browser's tab/bubble/whatever) and also breadcrumbs comes from that post, confusingly different from the threads title/subject.

Just don't do that, don't allow titles/subjects to individual posts, discard them, they are not needed and confusing.

Hi @waclawek.jan 
Thanks for your reply. 

We can agree on static titles creating the best result. I will look into the possibility of restructuring the titles as such.

Hello @waclawek.jan , 

I cannot replicate the mentioned behavior. Could you please share some screenshots to illustrate the inconsistencies?

Thanks,

Hi @Legacy member 

I believe I've inserted a screenshot with highlighting the titles, with this post. I can't find it in my Album either.

I'll try to reproduce and post later.

Hi @waclawek.jan 
I have scouted other threads to see if I can replicate this issue with completely different titles, but I haven't managed to find another example yet. 
Please correct me if I am misunderstanding your feedback, but my understanding is that you suggest the title should stay the same regardless of the hyperlink directing to a specific reply?  As an example: The following hyperlink: https://community.st.com/t5/mems-sensors/how-to-configure-and-connect-lsm6dsm-steval-mki189v1-in-3-wire/m-p/570194/highlight/true# Should not have the title "Re: How to configure.." but keep the original title as shown below?

Hi @Laurids_PETERSEN ,

> is that you suggest the title should stay the same regardless of the hyperlink directing to a specific reply

Yes.

The extra "Re:" is not an issue of course, just redundant.

I guess the post I've linked to was generated using e-mail (I didn't try that functionality yet) as I don't think there's an option to give posts subjects using the web editor.

This is not anything important, just one more example of how inconsistent Khoros is, resulting in confusing behaviour. Either enable subjects for individual posts (which I strongly recommend against, in what supposed to be a primarily web-based forum) and then display them and allow to insert them through the web interface (I repeat, I recommend against); or don't enable them, and then discard them from non-thread-starting posts made from e-mails (some primarily e-mail-based fora stick to this rule by simply creating a new thread for posts which don't maintain the subject). Make up your mind and stick to that decision.
