Unread Topics

Postby martin08 » Fri Jan 30, 2009 7:59 am

Hmmmm...

When I check the forum in the morning and see four or five unread topics, I don't always have time to read them all.

When I check in later, the all topics are marked as having been read.

Does this happen to everyone? Just curious.

Yup :( I wish it wasn't so. I feel like once I go to the forums I'm, "stuck," reading them all lest I miss posts.

Yes, the database doesn't track what you've specifically read, only what's been posted since your last visit.

O.K. Good to know guys.

I'm a member on a couple of other forums that don't delete until you open them.

The Last Posts should work just fine, thanks Jim.
