  • status icons not marked as read

    Alright, here is my problem. When there is a new reply in a topic or new topic the status icon shows new. When i view that topic and then return to the index it is still marked as new. The only way to get it marked as old is to back up the way i came.

    topic>sub-forum>forum>forum category>Main(index)
    I have seen other forums with this same problem. I'm thinking this has something to do with cookie setting or something? I just don't know how to configure anything.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    Are you using cookie-based session marking, or database read marking?

    If you want to to be automatic you would need to choose database read marking.

      I am using cookie based marking. I know that invisionfree uses this too. I had the same problem with that board and a mod that automatically configured the right cookie information fixed that problem.

      So: there must be a way to correct this. I'm absolutely sure that there are tons of other people out there with this same problem.

        Switch to the database read marking system. It is more reliable.
