    I have created a column called 'column' in xf_post, for example

    If I use {$post.column} or {$message.column} (in templates post and message, respectively), would it refer to the database or some cached value?

    @Chris D Right, I imagined so, so I have a situation here then.

    Template modification to: message

    <xen:if is="{$xenOptions.baShowVoteRibbon} AND {$message.bestanswers} >= {$xenOptions.baVoteIndicatorMinimumVotes} AND in_array({$thread.node_id}, {$xenOptions.baEnabledForums})"><strong class="apBAVoteIndicator"><span></span>{xen:phrase bestanswer_voteindicator, 'votes={$message.bestanswers}'}</strong></xen:if>
    // debug line below
    This gives me: 1 If I use another account and click the vote button, it says 2. So it's incrementing by one. That's not what is in the database.


    bestanswers is 1500. If I make a vote, the $post.bestanswers is increased by 1, however the database increases by 50 (as expected, some usergroups can have more power to affect the vote), so it's not a problem on the PHP code end of things, the database is being edited as it should, something is just wrong with the addition of it into the template.

    There was interference by other fields also available ($user.bestanswers or something?). Renamed the field and it works like a charm. Merci @batpool52!
