The read threads on this forum


Hi,
The read threads used to be dimmed after being read. Now only some of the old ones are like that. Is it the cookies or something?
Now I can't tell whether the thread has been read or not except by remembering it.

cheers.

Just curious. Have you cleaned or emptied history or cache before posting this thread?

Mine works OK.

Edit. Just double checked. This thread now shows read/dim not bold thread title, when I hit read latest on the Quick Links on tool bar.

2nd Edit: Any thread on the zero reply list. That I went to yesterday. But did not reply to.
It shows as bold/not read thread title still. Wondering if that is what you mean?

3rd Edit: Any thread I replied to. But a new reply has been added since mine. Shows up as Bold/not read thread title.

I am just posting observations.

Do the threads marked as unread that you think should not be have 0 zeplies? You might just be seeing the results of autobumping.

It's possible what you're seeing is the result of the auto bump, but I can confirm we haven't changed anything on our end that would impact this behavior.

Thanks for that.
On firefox I cleared out everything. With chrome I just deleted the Linux questions cookies. Both had the same effect.
This has never happened before.

cheers
