New Post Count, not dropping [unread] ??

#1 Post by ecps92 » 14 Jun 2018 07:32

Scott - seems to be a PHP issue....

From
app.php/portal
it indicates there are 12 New Posts, all of which I have read between yesterday and two
from two different computers, yet coming back it still says 12 messages

Bill,

If this happens again, go to the board index, and on the top right, there is a link. "Marked forums read", will clear it.
I've seen this happen occasionally on the other forum I am on that uses PHPBB. It has to do with cookie handling.

I am experiencing the same thing as Bill. Clicking "mark forums read" did not solve the "problem". I like seeing the old threads that I have already read, so I don't consider this a problem (as long as the post list doesn't get too long).

The problem isn't that posts are showing up as unread, just that they appear in the "new posts" list. The unread posts are properly marked as such, and the "unread" icon goes away after being read.

Logging out and back in fixed it for me.

Misunderstood.
