  • New posts indication disappears


    I logged in under my own username. Then I clicked 'View new posts'. I didn't read the posts, I just looked at the list. Then I logged out and logged in under an username to check something for that user. Then I logged back in, and the new posts were gone. This also happens with messages I haven't read and are 2 weeks old. They suddenly are not indicated as new anymore. I changed the cookie timeout to 12 hours to check if that was the problem.. but that didn't help. What could be wrong?

    I'm using vB 2.01.

    Logging out updates the last activity counter in the same way marking all posts read does.

    And since vB uses a last visit system for tracking what you've read, it won't actually be able to say "oh, you didn't read thread X" but only say "thread X is 2 weeks old, mark it as read".
