mark all forums as read

Post by franpa » Sat Jan 14, 2006 7:58 pm

when i logged in dismorning all topics on your website were marked as being read including those that ive never seen before (meaning those posted after my last login but before this login) i have only used the link to mark all as read once. this was very annoying to me any help would be appreciated.

i use, ie 6.0sp2, winxp home, direct x 9c, latest updates for o/s.

i keep my cookies, temp. internet files, and cookies well maintained and that is not the issue (well mmore then likely isn't) any help would be appreciated.

i just thought of something... could this be related to me having the index page open in two browser windows?

Yes, I have sometimes noticed this.

I think it happens when I open a subforum in a new menu, then go back to the main page. This instantly marks everything read.

It has something to do with leaving a window of the site open. I'm not sure what it is exactly but if I leave a tab open in FF connected to the site after a while it'll mark all forums as read and clear out the 'View posts since last visit' menu. I'm really lost as to what causes it as it happens to me on another phpBB based forum I go to yet on another I frequently visit I have no such problems.

No it's a phpBB bug franpa, there is a mod to fix it. I know this because this kind of thing on;y happens to me here and on another phpBB based forum, on a 3rd phpBB forum there are no such problems, nor have I ever encountered any such problems on Invision boards, if anything Invision boards suffer from not marking topics as read when you log off. Anyway I frequently chat with the owner and the tech guy of the phpBB forum that doesn’t suffer the problem, next time I do I’ll ask what mod was used to fix the issue and pass the info onto emmzee.

well the simple solution is not to click log out.

I think its convenient. IF you do turn up to a forum which has so many posts and you dont wish to read them all that are read. Simply logout and then back in.

But in this case it can be annoying at times.

I never log out. But after my first visit, it would mark 'em all as read.
But now it's not showing the new ones. And I still stay logged on.
It's a bug.

That doesn’t work, I never log out and topics get marked as read and disappear from the ‘new posts since last visit’ list all the same.

Didn't see anything in the update list about it. I've seen it happen a few times on an Invision board too, probably a system glitch, your computer sends the wrong information to the board's server or something.

Yeppers, 2.0.20 is here...this time I gotta manually upgrade. :cry:

What's up with all the glitches and bugs lately??
What browser are you using TD?
I was using Opera, and it started to screw up real bad...
I switch over to firefox, and everything works now.

There are still people using Opera? Well there you go, if I’d known I’d have told you to switch to Firefox long ago. Granted without Opera we wouldn’t have Firefox, but, Firefox is far, far better.

And TD, umm.. ermmm... Not sure how to fix that... Care to send a screenie my way? Or post one here, might be able to help out more that way.
