No recent unread topics?
« on: January 23, 2011, 11:57:53 AM »
I just got a new PC which is running IE8 on Windows 7.  I notice now that when I go to 'Show unread posts since last visit', there's nothing there.  If I go to a specific folder and read a post or two, I will then get a listing of a few unread posts in that folder, but that's it.  Is there some setting in Windows 7 or IE8 that's messing me up here?

I've noticed that sometimes when I switch between my desktop and my laptop I'll suddenly see 'no unread topics' on the one I just switched to. I know that it resets if you log out, so logging into another could be causing it.

On the top right of your page, under the 'logout' button is a plus sign.  Click that plus sign and 'unread topics' and 'unread replies' will re-display.

I think the website tracks which threads you've read with a cookie, which means if you switch computers, the new one won't have the same cookie installed (more tech-savvy people, please correct me if I'm wrong).

For me it resets sometimes (seemingly random). Right now, I have 7 pages of unread posts since last visit. Sometimes I'll only have 7 threads in total. I have no idea what causes it, I only read via my PC and occasionally via my phone (but that doesn't cause it, I tried it today).
