Bug in the forum
Posted 13 July 2002 - 07:25 PM
Let's say that thread 3 and 4 are showing new posts. I re-read thread 3 and go back to the main threads page but now threads 4 and 5 are showing new posts. If I read thread 4 and return, now 5 and 6 are showing new posts...
Is this a PHP problem? I can't seem to "clear the board" of new posts.
Just letting you know. I'm running IE 6 with all patches on W2KPro.
firstname.lastname@example.org (yes, it works!)
The problem with people today can be narrowed to two things:
1) Nobody pays attention
2) Nobody takes responsibility

If you browse most or all the forums, the best way is to use the "view new posts" link at the top of the main forum page. This shows you a listing of all threads with new posts.
After working your way down the list, do a quick refresh to see if there is anything new since you started reading (threads with new messages will appear at the top of the list). If nothing new to read, click on "mark all forums read" at the bottom of the page. This will clear all the cookies and start you from scratch.
Another way is after reading the forums, do nothing. The cookies will clear after 30 minutes of inactivity.
Hope this helps.
