Mark All read?

Post by 474 »

Is there a way to hit a button and mark all of the forums read?

Hi Tim,
Just hold your cursor over the Quick Links up above on the right. There is a drop down menu.

There's also a link at the bottom of the main forums page.

OK, the one under 'Quick Links' does all the forums. Is there a way to do this on a per forum basis?

Example, I only want to mark all of the 'Eastern Mass' forum threads as 'no new posts'.

When in a particular forum, there is a menu link right above the first thread on the right called Forum Tools. You can then hit the drop-down and there is a selection for Mark This Forum Read.

Seems to work okay.

Hey, what do you know! Cool feature...

And I thought I tried everything. I guess I did, except that! :t

Thanks!

I agree, it takes a while to find all the features. Sensory overload at first!

This helps, though... :pint:

It is a feature that I could not live without. When I check for new messages I look at the main page "Scan Mass Message forums" and look for the icons that are marked red. Then I click on them and read the threads that interest me. After doing this I "mark all threads read" to avpoind reading the same posts twice.
