  • Read/Unread Threads Problem

    Hi, I have an issue with read threads that still show up as unread even after they have been read . It happens quite often.

    Thanks in advance.

    What read marking system are you using? The database read marking system is the most intuitive:

    Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> General Settings -> Thread/Forum Read Marking Type


    There might be unread posts inside of the thread still. For example, if there are unread posts on the last two pages of a thread and you only view the last page then the thread will still be unread because there are still unread posts on the second-to-last page.

    Note that there are different types of thread links and not all of them take you straight to the unread posts. For example, clicking the title of a thread on the forumdisplay page will take you to the first page. Clicking the image to the left of the thread title will take you to the first unread post. Clicking the image in the Last Post box will take you to the last page.

    Also note that your users can always use this option on the forumdisplay page:

    Forum Tools -> Mark This Forum Read

    And if you have AJAX enabled on your forum then you can mark a forum read by double clicking it's read marker:
