Title: Unread Posts
Post by: cybercoma on October 13, 2017, 08:30:03 am
There’s some funny business with the “Show unread posts since last visit” link. I’ll go through all of them, but then when I browse the forums after clearing it out, there’s still posts marked “new” in the forums. Any idea what’s up, JMT?

Maybe that's also what I have noticed:

If I make a post, it doesn't show in the 'new' posts list on the front page until minutes later ?

No idea - I don’t use that feature.  Let me know if it keeps up and I’ll try to find out.

It's been happening for months. I just didn't bother to mention it. I was hoping to see if others noticed the same issue.

It's probably a problem with the programming - not something I can fix.  I know there's a forum I'm on that uses similar software, and I have a lot of problems with posts I already read showing as unread.
