    The threads below have not been updated since your last visit but still contain unrea

    For the past couple few days I've been seeing this message when I click on New Posts. Why... and is anyone else seeing it?

    "The threads below have not been updated since your last visit but still contain unread posts."

    Andrew changed the server settings recently. It seems a little counterintuitive to me - I've switched over to using the "Today's Posts" link under the "Quick Links" menu thing.

    I tried that and that didn't change what it reads. There are posts from today that are below that message.

    Oh yeah, that part doesn't go away, no matter what. But with the way that the new New Posts page works, if you've looked at a thread since it was last posted to, or were the last one to post, it doesn't show up at all, which makes a few extra steps for finding the threads I want to look at. The Today's Posts list at least shows things in complete chronological order.

    Interesting. I don't see the message Jim does but I've noticed some odd stuff the past few days. One is that all posts would normally be marked as read when I leave for the day. The next time I come back, only the new posts would show up as not read. Now, I physically must enter a thread to have it marked as read. Each time I come back, there are many posts that have not changed at all since my last visit but are still marked as unread....

    Just noticed Jim's message as I'm writing this - over on the right side.
    All the best,

    I've never seen that. Read all the posts you want then go to the quick link and click "Mark Forums as Read" and see if the system will sync up next time you visit.

    It could be a cookie thing too, since you're using public computers?

    When I asked Andrew about it, I believe he said that he switched from the client-side, cookie-based activity tracking to a server-side one that uses a database. But I didn't save the PMs because I'm constantly running out of space, so I might've got it backwards.
