Good Morning

I use geekzone on 3 separate computers (1 PC, 1 laptop, both mine and a work laptop).

when i use the reset forum flags button on my laptop for instance it doesnt seem to carry over to any of the other devices. Ive been away for 2 weeks with work and reset forum flags on my PC before i left. I used the forums last weekend on my laptop and also resef forum flags on that when i finished. Now that im back home on the PC ive just noticed i have post showing as unread doing back to 2 weeks ago when i was last on here and hit reset flags

is there any way to make it so the reset flags button works over multiple devices? i know its possible on other forums just wondering if it can be done on geekzone.

It would be a big help as im away with work often and am switching devices a bit.

 

Thanks

Jason

I will have a look because the flag should be consistent across devices.

The interesting one I am getting is no email notifications - not getting put into Spam either. I can't quite figure out what is going on :)

having this issue again on my android tablet, havent used it for 10 days, but it view the forum multipul times a day on the home pc and always reset the read flags when i finish viewing the forum. i reset the read flags about 1230 this afternoon.

The tablet is taking me to new posts in threads from about the 5th of jan.

so it doesnt seem to be passing the last visit/reset post info to the device.

any help would be much appreciated

I think should be consistent. Should really look at that bit of code again...

It's random as hell on my devices. I use the live page 99% of the time.

Sometimes it's consistent, usually not.
I have devices suddenly reset the flags seemingly at random. This doesn't populate to other devices.
I sometimes load the live page to find only one "popular" thread showing as new, and it's usually not the top one.

This is the only forum I use that doesn't track reading. All the others track to at least to the thread level most even to the post level.

I realise this is bespoke software and a hobby, and I genuinely appreciate your efforts. I do wonder sometimes though whether you'd be better off just using standard software like PHPBB and being done with it.

i also find it annoying if it have the home page open and havent read any of the new posts and i get called away for something and come back a while later and click new posts, it shows nothing, its reset the posts for me for some reason.

Read flags have always been a bit weird on GZ, they've never worked well between computers for me. Right now it's marking my own posts as new and unread.

This could all be fixed by letting a user control (reset) read flags themselves via a button at the top of each GZ page and stop GZ deciding when to reset them itself.

Alas I have requested this too many times with no action, so I don't see my request ever taking shape :-(
