Description of problem

I just finished updating my Forum a few days ago and ive just noticed the icons for New topics and new posts aren't showing.

The icon for no new posts stays instead of changing to new posts.

I made a second admin account for back up,different email obviously,and that's when i noticed it. I made posts with my main account.And when viewing the forum with my other account. The new post icons don't show.

I'm wondering if something has been deleted or altered when i was updating. code wise!

Hi @TreeTopmonkey,

Are you using the same browser for the two accounts ? If so, that's why it's not changing. A cookie is set when you view new replies / topics, and lives throughout multiple logins. If you log into your other account with another browser the posts should display as "new."

Yes the icon changed for yours and the the older posts i had made. The only thing that seems different is when logging out then back in again, even if using a different browser,the icon goes back to no posts. I don't remember it doing that in the past unless you viewed the post.

Has it always been that way? I thought you had to read post for them to go from new to old?

Thank you for taking the time and effort to help me out. Very Happy

I just checked on another forum im signed up to and yes when you log off then back in again the icons do go back to no posts.

I guess i just never noticed it in the past. hehe silly me.

Oh, now I understand what you mean ! Smile Yes, when you log out while new posts are present, they'll be marked as read the next time you log in. As far as I know there's no way to change that, other than to keep yourself logged in until you've read the posts you want. Neutral

This search query : /search?search_id=newposts let's you see all new posts since your last visit, though. ( and current posts when logged in )

I guess most people will read all before logging off. I just never noticed it before.

Since you posted on the forum, it seems back to normal now. It's odd, maybe not having anything posted for months while i worked on it made it hibernate.I don't want that

Problem solved.

Thanks again,and have a good weekend. groar

Indeed, the only drawback is when you accidentally log yourself out. Shocked Anyway, you're welcome. ^^
