Show unread posts not working :(
« on: June 04, 2014, 09:16:54 AM »
I love this feature since it quickly lets me see all the latest posts without cruising every single forum individually however, the past couple of days, it brings up nothing.  Is anyone else having this issue?

Still working fine for me.

 >:(   Okay, so in order to see the new activity, I have to click on "Show new replies to your posts" ... my computer is possessed

I love the feature, but it eliminates all posts, whether read or not, since the last visit. Sometimes I don't have time to read all the new posts, and when I open it the next time, all the previous posts are gone. There's got to be a simple way that I'm not aware of to bring those posts back? :-\ Syd

Herrican,
This feature works fine for me, never had to click the "show new replies to my posts" to get it to work.
Syd,
That isn't my experience, when I come to the forum and click that "show unread posts" I get a list of threads with new posts, I click one, read it and then click the link again to get the list minus the thread I just read. If I leave the site and come back the unread ones still show up (though I admit I usually read them all, or click the "mark as read" to mark them). Not sure why it would be working differently for you.

If there are no unread posts since last visit, a link will show, Click here to try all unread topics.

I don't know why my experience would be different either Steve? Your point is well taken Jay, but, when there have been new posts since my last visit, it will only show those, and not the previously unread ones. I guess I have to mark the new ones read, close the forum, and open it again to receive the prompt about other unread messages? Not trying to be a pain by the way! :D

Now I seem to have a new look on this forum and can't find the "show unread posts" link on it. Any help?

Look under the head and shoulders icon in the upper left of the page.

I changed back to the earlier format which seems much friendlier (maybe I'm just used to it)
It's is lighter on the screen and easier for me to read

Thanks, Doug. I didn't see Jon's post about the different themes either, until I found the new way to look at recent posts.

Hmm, no one should have changed to the new theme unless they manually made the change themselves. I'll look into it...

Yea but on Tapatalk I had 107 threads that were unread... that were not unread before. And I've worked it down to 66. Damn!
I'm not enjoying these "improvements"!

That was due to a needed Tapatalk upgrade, has nothing to do with the template change. Unfortunately, sometimes this stuff happens, but the alternative is an insecure system.
