I see some strange behavior. When an user does not exist and he answers to some question, than he is forced to register. Thereafter we should see the answer, but I see only the a higher number of answers, not the answer itself.

Can you post a screenshot?

If you post a screenshot, it will benefit future visitors to this forum who might have the same issue.

I have the same problem - I set up a 30-day trial for Askbot for my constraint programming class to use as a forum - teacher answered a question, then logged in - but the answer doesn't show. Even worse, the question has answers=1 and the teacher is no longer allowed to post his answer, as the system thinks he has already done so. However, there is definitely no answer showing! Any ideas?

Ok, well I don't know what causes the bug itself but I found a solution that worked for me.

Get to the regular Django admin page for your forum (not the special adminstrator page) by typing its url then /admin/. Then click on 'Posts', and find the missing posts. From there, you can manually assign a parent post (it seems to be missing), or just copy and paste the text into a 'new' answer.

Thanks Alex F, but this solution works only for small sites. It is a bug and should be corrected.
