Maybe the "Sort by votes" was activated in topics? 🤔
Recent Posts still shows deleted posts.
I noticed that @Ben-Wang made a post inside this thread, which was subsequently deleted. However on the forum homepage, the recent posts still shows the content & a link to the deleted post. I'm sure this would be solved when soft deleting is tackled, but just wanted to make you aware of it in case it happens anywhere else.
Thanks for reporting https://github.com/designcreateplay/NodeBB/issues/1366
This is fixed on master now.
