View Full Version : Issues with threads getting marked as read

01-16-2008, 12:40 PM
There seems to be a bit problem where threads will just get marked as read automatically.

More than once, when visiting a forum, I notice there are new replies to a thread I know I haven't read yet, but vb doesn't mark them as unread.

It also seems the whole "auto-mark" timeout is set WAY too low. What is at? 30 mins? Should be at least 3+ hours.

Ya, I notice that as well. Thought it was just me. Only happens rarely though.

I changed it from cookie based to database driven. It should be more reliable now.

Bleh. of course, now you have to remark everything as read again.

Initial test (this thread) worked!

Can just mark them all read with 1 click and go back and read the ones from today :/

Pain in the ass I know, but this method of storing what's marked as read is much better.
