Description of problem

I know that I haven't changed anything, but we no longer appear to get the red light at the left hand side of the thread to indicate that there is a new post.
Has anything changed? And can someone tell me where I can check this?

Solved Further information

I logged into the forum using an account that I hadn't used for perhaps a couple of years. Every red indicator was lit up, so I thought "wonderful" the problem has gone away.
So I clicked on "Mark all forums read" and of course the indicators went off. I wrote a new post, and then logged off and logged back on using my usual username. The post I'd just done should have shown up as new. It didn't. Something is broken, I suspect.

Help please.

Before you logged in with the last account, did you clear your browser's cache?

Also were you using the same device?

yes if you log in and make a post with the same browser as the other account it will not show as the system will send a Cookie to your browser so before logging in on your other account you need to clear your browser and then close your browser down and reopen it.

the system will then think your a new member using some other account then show your new post Icons

Thank you for your suggestion. It reminded me that I hadn't cleared my browser cache for some time, so I did this, with saved cookies etc, and all is back to normal.
Damn complex these computer thingies... Smile
