    Forum checkmarks

    The forum used to have checkmarks for 'unread' items. Did they go away or did I change a setting somewhere??

    Thank you so much!

    I thought that the bits vanishing and reappearing were just a sign of old age. I'm glad someone else noticed them!

    When you visit, don't read anything , and leave ...sometimes they vanish, without having read one line.
    Just say: "Rage It", because we already know it's art.

    Make sure that you are logged in. You won't see the check marks unless the forum knows who you are.

    They were there and then they went away!

    Also make sure you allow 'cookies' for the website.

    Definitely something I would expect to see when logged in. Andy's right about the cookies, as the board will allow you to be remembered for a few days, but if you don't see new items when you get to the main page, check that in the navigation menu at the top it has, for example "Log out (DaveRage)" to ensure you're logged in and they should display correctly.

    Do feel free to let me know though, if despite this you still see a problem.

    As hanzz says, sometimes all it takes is a visit to the forum to mark everything inexplicably read. I haven't noticed that here yet, but I have at other phpBB forums. I'll keep an eye out for odd cookie behaviour.

    I've noticed on other forums (but not here yet!) that if you have one forum window open, then open another window to the same board that sometimes the cookies get confused and it marks everything as read. It seems to be a limitation on the PHPBBS system. And it's fairly random - it doesn't happen all the time.
