    Default Forum problems marking files as read..

    Has anyone else noticed this ...

    In the past, after reading an entry, a reload of the page reverted it to 'read'

    Lately, after reading one or more entries, the only way I can show it as read, is on the main forum page at the bottom--'mark forums read', and that clears everything.

    I wonder if anything has changed in the forum program.

    Up until a while ago, it worked fine for me.

    Knowing that someone else sees it helps restore my illusion of sanity.

    The only way I get it to mark it as read is to read my posts and then go to the top of the current page and click "new posts". Maybe you've been drinking too much corporate Kool Aid like that "other web site" suggested.....

    Id suggest to the admins Simple Machine Forums but I think changing over would be quite a new learning experience for them. Not sure they could restore the posts in a new product either.

    Nope your only as crazy as you arrived here as, and no more.

    IIRC, the original forum ran Simple Machines. I'm not sure why they changed to vBulletin.
