    On my forum there is one thread with the following problem:

    Post 1 - #1
    Post 2 - #2
    Post 3 - #2
    Post 4 - #3

    As you can see, post 2 and 3 are both listed with #2 at the bottom right. This just happened today. Post 3 was posted from an iPhone 6 (iOS 8.1) with very poor Wi-Fi signal (keep losing connection).

    That's likely why. Nothing to be worried about.

    Another site I frequent was having major server issues the other night (ended up going down for an hour and a half) and something I posted got posted twice and ended up having the same post number when I came back later and noticed it. I just deleted the duplicate.

    Post 1 (posted by A) - #1
    Post 2 (posted by A) - #2
    Post 3 (posted by B) - #2
    Post 4 (posted by C) - #3

    The post 3 was mine (user B) and in fact it was posted twice (due to the Wi-Fi problem). I deleted the duplicate however my post is still being listed as #2 when in fact it should be #3. Then user C came and posted the post 4 and his post is being listed as post #3.

    Maybe I'm wrong but it looks like vBulletin 3.8 was more robust in this aspect. I mean I never remember seeing a duplicate post number within a thread.

    Post numbers are stored with the post, not generated dynamically. Rebuild thread information in your caches and make sure you rebuild the post counters.
