View Full Version : posts showing up as new...

When ever I log on and see that there are new posts, I go over to the respective forum. When I get there, they are shown as read. Any ways to alleviate?

Do you have the 'remember me' box ticked? I've noticed that if I'm on a machine and log in with my work account, I get this happening - but if I have it remembering me and I come back, I don't get it.

Yeah... I do have it ticked, yet I only have one user name, and I log in from only one location.

So you don't have to keep typing in your password? Okies, going to have to look into this one.

Im trying out the database style of recording unread threads. It crashed on me last time, causing some minor database errors, but I'm hopeful that it's going to work this time. Reports of aberrant behaviour would be appreciated, but I should find out about it if anything happens. MIke and GBM know what to do if it does play funny fellows, and I backed up the databse tonight as a precaution.
Let me know how it goes.

That's mentioned in the site news announcement. It's a one-off - once those posts are read again, they shouldn't come out as unread at all. The main forum names (Sucky Customers, General Work Chat etc) have the circles next to them that will turn orange when there are unread posts inside. Double clicking on those will mark all threads inside as read.

There's also the "Mark Forums Read" link at the bottom of each page in the forums. :D

That's for all forums - using the orange buttons allows you to see which ones have theads you may not have read in them based on the last posting date in there, but it's a good suggestion.
