Unread posts problem

Post by Bouncelot » Sun Nov 13, 2005 10:10 pm

I seem to have had a problem recently where once I read one thread, the board marks all the other unread threads as read. Any idea what might be causing this?

If the forum index also resets the last time you visited to the same time you read that post, it's a cookie problem based on the particular domain you are using to access the site with.

I find that www.transfans.net gets 'reset' whenever I follow a link to transfans.tfarchive3.com and vice versa.

That would explain it. Thanks Rebis. I'll be more careful which domain I use to visit the forum.

Welcome back Bounce. :)

I too have been experiencing this problem of late.
