Show unread posts not working?

For the last two mornings when I have accessed the forum the "Show unread posts since last visit." has produced no results, although all new posts are showing in the individual forums.
Is it just me, or is it a bug?

Re: Show unread posts not working?

it's a bug - but nobody will admit it (I thought it was only me).
I got round it by only staying logged in for 60 minutes

Hmm.  I've never seen this and I *live* on show unread posts.

Re: Show unread posts not working?

Me too, and I've never seen it not work as designed.
If you log out, then log back in again it counts as a seperate visit, so will only show you the 'posts since last visit'
You can choose to see all posts though, by using this url:
http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php?action=unread;all
Its the unread since last visit one, with ;all appended.
I'm wondering if there is something strange with cookie handling that could affect it in some cases.

It worked ok for me up until yesterday morning, but then on my first access to the forum on that day it would not work.
Later in the day it worked fine again, but this morning the problem was back. I remain logged in all the time.

edit: I use CCleaner to clear cookies at the end of each day but have the "community.plus.net" cookie marked for retention - has anything changed here?

No problem this morning and all seems to be working well.
It must have been something I did over the last two days - but I've no idea what!

There is a bug, but for me I am getting notifications for posts I have unsubscribed from (which then aren't in my notification 'list').  Sad

Re: Show unread posts not working?

It's back again - or never went away!
Since my last post I have had no further problems until now. The difference seems to be that when I access this forum directly, as I normally do, the "show unread posts since last visit" works. But if I go to the forum home page first and read one of the items (the IE7 one in this case), then it seems to count my "last visit" as the visit to the home page or the item viewed from that page - but I don't think is does it all the time.
Can anyone replicate this?
Does anyone want to?
I can certainly live with it Wink
