[resolved] Last description "leaking" onto main download page (2 posts)

    Just updated to the new version, installed the download page addon, and found a very weird bug on the downloads page.

    It appears that the last item listed on the downloads page "leaks" its description onto the main download page, below all the other page content. For example, if I have a page with the following content:

    Thanks for downloading!

    it will output three boxes, one for each category I have, and list 4 articles in each box (so far so good). It will appear that the shortcode stops there, as the page HTML shows the div closes and the page moves on with its life. But then, below "Thanks for downloading!" (and any other content I have on the page) a seemingly random block of text appears in "p" tags. This text block does NOT appear on individual download pages--it is only on the main download overview page.

    After a lot of head scratching and trial / error I realized that the content in the "p" tags is the description text of the last download item listed on the main downloads page. Alter the order of that last category box and the mystery text changes to reflect the description of the newly last item on the list.

    Not sure why this is happening or how to stop it. See it for yourself here: http://www.terressentia.com/news/press

    Anyone else seen this or have any ideas why it is occurring?

    As discussed elsewhere, this was a theme issue.
