Hi,

I am facing an issue these days. Even if the topic is read, still it appears unread. I tried refreshing the page; but no hope. I am not sure if this occurs particular to me.

I've noticed the same thing -- sometimes the topic is resent to "read", sometimes it remains "unread". After it's been read, the topic itself changes from bold to normal font though. (I think)!

Hello,

Many months ago some change was made to the way this is handled - it stopped working correctly back then.

What i've done to get around it is to work from the "recent topics" list which accurately reflects read/not read topics. . . This works ok for me as i'm involved with most parts of the forum, but if someone only wanted to watch 2 or 3 parts of the forum, this might not work so well for them icon_confused.gif

Recent topics also does not seem to work. I always keep it open in one wnidow. But since the last couple of weeks, this is also not working. Were there any changes made recently?

I just logged off and logged in again. Went to 'Recent topics', saw only the below 2 unread topics

http://ibmmainframes.com/viewtopic.php?t=36546

http://ibmmainframes.com/viewtopic.php?t=36513

I opened both in separate tabs and closed both after reading. Now if I refresh the "Recent topics", the first topic is still seen unread.
Even I doubt what I m thinking as "unread" is really "unread" or is it something else.

May be a cache problem. Try to Shift+Refresh(F5) the browser. If not works, clear the browser cache completely and try again.

That only happens to me when someone posts a new reply while i have the topic open. So far, refresh on the "recent topics" list works correctly.

Yes, just now i opened the "Home" / index.php page and it shows many incorrect "unread" sections of the forum. This has been going on so long that i seldom go to this page.

Logging out and back in (instead of logging in automatically) seems to reset my "View topics since last login" field. Guess I'll do that from now on.

I tried both, but still results the same. Let me try with IE.

I just logged in using IE, waiting for somebody to make new posts. Seems like I'll have to help myself in this.

Looks like I need not log out and back in each time -- a browser refresh (IE) solved the problem for me.
