FWIW Nothing shows on my browser ...
as being "read", i.e. no difference in whole thread, individual post (whether opened or opened in new window)nor pointer arrows. But then, I am on IE6... Oh well.
I am also on IE6
and everything works just fine.
Threads or posts? I wonder if ....
I'm missing something that doesn't exist - doh! My thread markings arrive, but I have a complete "no show" on individual posts, which I used to get until recently. (You'll recall there was some debate about the visibility of pale pink marking colours etc.)
Do your individual posts show in any way - I'm currently going by the timing of the posts as to whether I would have read that during my last log-in session
Thanks and regards
For example, you can't create the issue on your own. Let me explain it in another way.
A post (top item), and 2 replies.
All unread. Now read the top post (it happens...) Read the bottom reply and don't open the 2nd item. It will have to be unread. And it will show fine.
Return to the forum and the marking is that the thread is read. Odd.
Let me know if this makes sense --from the FAQs
Read tracking on the Forum Page (eg. Windows XP forum): On the forum page you will be presented with 3 different icons (orange and clear arrow, or red ball), each located next to the discussion's subject line. Depending on the icon, it will indicate to you whether that particular discussion has been read or unread. The different icons are defined as follows:
--(orange arrow) Indicates that this entire discussion has never been read
--(clear arrow) Indicates that this discussion has been read
--(red circle) Indicates that this discussion has been updated with new messages.
Once you have opened a discussion marked with a orange arrow, whether you have read through the discussion in its entirety or not, it will be marked with a clear arrow indicating that you have read the discussion. Only in the discussion tree will you be able to tell which messages you have read or not read. However, if someone were to post a new message to that discussion, it will be marked with a red circle to indicate that a new message is present in that discussion.
Read tracking within a discussion thread: On the discussion thread page, you will be presented with 2 different icons (an orange and clear arrow). These arrows will be present next to the subject lines in the discussion tree to indicate to you whether that particular message has been read or unread. The different arrow colors are defined as follows.
--(orange arrow) Indicates that this message has never been read
--(clear arrow) Indicates that this message has been read
Once you have clicked a message indicated with an orange arrow and proceed to navigate on to the another message, that previous message arrow will turn clear, indicating that it has been read.
It only slightly broken. Here's how.
If I open a thread, add a reply and don't go back to discussion and someone had added a message just before I pressed Post My ..., the thread is mark with the clear arrow.
I never saw the new post.
It's an odd thing, but read tracking has this small nit/bug.
