Using Chrome too. Looks like it is now working...

Did you fix it Mauricio, or it it playing silly buggers?

I have changed some of the code and we now jump to the last post just before the reset.

If you want to check when your session was reset, look at the source code and scroll to the bottom - you will see the timestamp and the IP information there.

So this must mean that the manual Reset Read Flags only option is on its way? ;-)

freitasm: I could look into it.


That's what you always say :-(.

I find the First Reply Since Reset doesn't work for me using Chrome.  It takes me to the first unread reply on the last page of the thread.  Where there have been multiple pages of replies since my last visit it goes to the first one on the last page only.  Is anyone else experiencing this too?

It just brought me here - although I think I was on the previous page at lunch time.

Satch: So this must mean that the manual Reset Read Flags only option is on its way? ;-)


If we were to track individual forum usage, instead of login time, this is how I see it working:

  • If you visit a topic then a record will be created with a timestamp for the visit
  • Each time you visit a topic the timestamp will be updated, regardless of which pages you read
  • An account level timestamp will exist which will control from when ALL topics/replies are to be considered NEW
  • A forum will be marked as NEW if either
    • A reply exists that is newer than the timestamp recorded against that topic
    • A reply exists but no timestamp is recorded against your account
  • A topic will not be marked as NEW if there are not replies entered after your account level timestamp
  • An option for a general reset would exist, updating the account level timestamp

How does it sound?

Since you made the last change , every time I click on the last unread post icon I get a new tab pop up rather than the existing one going to it. Opera 12.6

Mauricio, that sounds fairly logical.

I see. I have to change this. The way it works is that if you have auto refresh it should open a new tab, if not then same tab. Will change later.

I read that a couple of times through and I'm not sure I took it all in sorry (my head is full of work issues from the past few days so that doesn't help!).

Basically I would like the following (which is nice and simple in concept):
  • Individual posts never get marked as read unless I manually click the "reset read posts" link/button.
So if I never click reset, all posts will always show as unread.

You could go as far as to set this new logic on a user by user basis.  Have a setting in each person's profile to say whether or not to use the logic I specified above.  That way everyone would be happy.  I don't know how hard this would be in practice though.

I get this now too on Chrome.  Great addition to the functionality though.  Thank you.
