Test 2: Are my eyes deceiving me?

The subject does not appear to be bold. Sad

It does show as bold when previewing it, but not after submitting it.

Must be these 35 y/o eyes!

The Preview does look a little bit bolder when...

previewing, but it maybe because of the grayed out background that draws attention to it being bolder?

I don't think I made myself clear.

If I view the discussion itself (in a separate tab) the subject does appear in bold. It's on the front page of the Test Forum, where it's not. Clear as mud?

Hardly, a major issue. No doubt after some playtime, I'll figure out what I may have over-looked.

And by the way, It was worth the wait! Everything looks GREAT!!

ahh got it. Bold and unbold
by Lee Koo (ADMIN) CNET staff/forum admin / May 22, 2015 10:13 AM PDT

This is because of message marking (unread/read) status of each discussion thread.

If you are logged out, it will not no be bold.

If you are logged in, it depends on the status of the thread if you have read it or not.

Carol, here is the new way on the how the forum listing message marking works:http://www.cnet.com/forums/faq/#readtrack

In the old forums we used red, green, and gray dots to indicate what thread has been read, unread, and updated.

Let me know if this make sense.
