Solved New Topic Icon not appearing when new posts are made

Post by Blackstingray1967 on November 9th 2014, 2:32 am

My "New Topic" icon is a dark blue color but when I post a new topic the Forum icon does not change to indicate there is a new post in that particular forum. Any ideas?

Forum: riidclub

Thanks.

If your doing this in the ACP, Design, Templates, General then what ever else, I would of thought you need to approve them, if not I'm not sure lol.

Hello Blackstingray1967,

Are you the one making the replies or new topics ? If so, the icon will not change as it will act as if you have already read the topic/reply. However, it will change if another user makes a reply or topic.

When you post something, it does not appear new to you, but to others it will appear new.


When your topic has been solved, ensure you mark the topic solved.

Hello all,

I use an Admin login account and create a post. I then use a dummy user account that I use to verify my updates and changes. When I post as Admin and then login as user, I am not seeing the new post icon which should be a solid blue coloraccording to the template I am using. When I post as user, I do not see the new post icon when viewing as Admin. I am coming from the same IP address. Would that be causing the discrepancy.

Thanks.

That would be the problem. When you create the post in your Admin and view it, it sets a cookie which marks that topic as read. When you go to the test account, the topic will be read unless you clear your browser cookies. If you use multiple browsers such as Admin on Firefox and Test account on Chrome, you will be able to see the new topic icons without issue.

Ange Tuteur,

You are 100% correct once again! I use IE and Chrome. I placed a test post on the forum using IE and then used Chrome to view the post as a user and there it was, a blue new post icon.

As usual, thanks a million.
