Threads prematurely marking as read

Noticed this start happening yesterday.

Say I access the forums list and see that there are unread posts in a specific forum, when I click into that forum, all the posts that I haven’t read yet are not shown as such. The unread notifier isn’t there on the relevant threads, nor is the ‘last unread post’ link.

The main forums index doesn’t always show the unread notifier either. I think it’s not showing the indicator at all when the new posts are new threads without any replies.

This is making it somewhat tricky to track what I’ve seen and what I haven’t.

Hmmm ok, let me look into this. I didn’t really change anything specifically in the forums for a while now, but perhaps a CSS style I updated somehow is making unread messages appear as normal.

This is happening to me as well.

OK, I’ve dug deep and _think_ I’ve fixed this. In some tests I did locally it looks good but please do let me know.

It’s working for me now, too.  Thank you, Mr. Fixit! Thumbs Up

Looking better, although having come in here to post this reply, that may have caused the issue to trigger again.

I’ll monitor some more and update.

I was noticing having the same issue, and then for a while I wasn’t having this issue, and now It’s back again.

I thought maybe I pressed a wrong button or something.

I do notice it’s not consistently resolved yet. I’ll continue looking into this. I have a sense that there’s a bug that marks things read if someone else reads it for you.

So I’m getting closer to the bug, if you view a forum it’ll mark the threads ‘read’ as well on second view. It should obviously only do this if you view the actual thread. Trying to figure out why it suddenly has this behavior so I can fix it.

Edit: So in my latest tests everything seems to behave normally again, please let me know if it does for you as well!

Seems okay now, yes.  Thumbs Up

If you did fancy digging a bit more, pinned threads have never shown an unread notification icon when there are new posts. I don’t know if that could be improved.

Ah. Interesting, let me look at that.
