  • Polls Showing as Unread

    I found an old 3.0 thread about this, which indicated that it was fixed, but I am having a similar (the same?) problem with 3.6.3 (I'll upgrade to 3.6.4, momentarily ):
    • A user has started a poll
    • I vote in the poll and post a message
    • When I return to the forum index, the poll shows as unread
    • If I go into the poll (read it) and return to the forum index, the poll shows as read
    • If I post another reply, the same thing happens, and revisiting the thread sets it back to read
    Any ideas?

    P. S. Actually, I notice that the forum display is often "out of sync" with the actual forum read status. For example, I just returned to my forum home page to see that there were "unread" messages in one of my forums, but, when I went into the forum, there were not, actually. That does not seem to involve polls; it happens all the time. Going into the forum seems to set things to right, as with the poll problem.

    Try a different read marking option:

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

    The Database (automatic forum marking) option is the most intuitive but also the most intensive.

      I will check out the options.

      Oh, for the simplicity of 2.0...
