Issues with "Show unread posts..."???
« on: August 26, 2013, 05:09:56 PM »
Is anyone else having issues with the "Show unread posts..." function?  I'm finding that there are NO unread posts (even though there really are) when I visit the website...making it mandatory to select each header and click on all unread posts...  Not the end of the world, but IFF others are experiencing this & if this can be fixed.......well I'm all for it.

It has been intermittent for me.  Yes, I've cleared my cache/etc...but still no permanent fix.  Will keep trying things from this end.   ???

No.  When I revisit the forum...and click "Show unread posts..."...I'll then find nothing.  Thus I'm required to visit each bolded header and find the unread posts.  After visiting once, the header is no longer bolded even if there are more unread posts.  This is a new phenomenon that I've not seen.

I have trouble with it also, so now I just go to the base forum page and scroll to the bottom and click on the recent posts link and read through them that way. http://kcfdc.org/forum/index.php?action=recent

no, this is totally broken and has been for years.

try this:

1) visit http://kcfdc.org/forum/  (the forum home page)
2) notice dark colored basket for many categories  (this means New Posts (unread) within the category)
3) simply go into the category, you don't even have to read any posts, in fact not reading any will only support my point even more
4) without reading a post in the category, use your browser back button to return to the home page.  The basket for that category is still bold, yes? 
5) reload the home the page or open http://kcfdc.org/forum/ in a new tab.

now you see the category basket is no longer bold, even though there are posts inside that are new and unread.   ???


Not sure why, but it is again working just fine with the exception of a recent few days in a row.   
:-X ::)
