Why, when i look at a yellow unread thread, read it, go back to the topic list the next topic that i haven't read is  no longer flagged ie marked as read when i haven't in fact read it. Not a massive issue i know but you can see the danger can't you, i mean i might think ive read a topic but in fact i might have missed something really funny/important/interesting or one of  t'bs posts

So if there is a list of topics marked unread and you read the third one in the list, for me, the top two topics also get marked read.

Aye, give it a quick flick.

The site is fine, I suggest the problem lies your end.

Anyway, you're admin, can't you sort it out?

Usually some kind of caching problem, the system works by kind of looking on your computer to see what you've read.

Top right of the forum front page you'll see 'posts since last visit', you could use that if need be.

As others have suggested, I normally use the "view posts since last visit" option, and open it in a new tab.

I think the problem may arise from how the site defines a visit. If it defines it as  going to the home page, then if you navigate away from the home page to view a thread and then return to the home page, it might define that as a new visit and therefore mark everything as being old posts.

It drops a cookie onto your computer to flag that you've read a certain post, when you go back to the main page or any other section for that matter the site interrogates your machine, notices which posts you've read and marks it as read.  Not sure what is happening on LD's machine, but it's likely that it has to do with the retention of cookies.

I don't dispute what you say - mine was a suggestion based on observation rather than any knowledge how these things actually work.

This site does appear to deal with marking posts as read differently to others.
