A Glitch?

I notice that \'Show unread posts since last visit\' is showing posts that have been read† :(†  I think your recent changes have produced a bug.

Colin,

Thanks for the report but it is working fine for me. Is anyone else experiencing this?

Keith, this only happens occasionally, but I have seen it several times. Like a lot of software problems, it will often depend on the direction you approach them from, i.e what you did previously.

When I click on \"show unread posts since last visit\" I get nothing.† No unread posts at all.† I have to find them by searching each category manually.†  :(

GregW,

That\'s because you\'re \"special\"...† :o :) ;)

Someday we\'ll get all the kinks out of this. Anything is better than Yahoo, right???

I discovered the \"read the most recent post\" at the bottom of the home page. That is what I use now so I can easliy scroll through all the postings.

Hi Greg,

Try Rob\'s alternative \'Read the most recent posts\' at the bottom of the home page. This gives you a Digest of posts, like emails. Let us know if this works.

Cheers

It certainly works and is useful. Perhaps you should put it at the top of the page with \'Show all unread....\' and \'Show all new replies....\' and make them bold.

Aw, Billy. You\'re one step ahead of me.† You knew I was going to ask for my money back didn\'t you?†  ;D

Keith, I did as you suggested and tried Rob\'s method.† Yes, that works.

Wasn\'t really trying to complain as I like the new forum.† Mostly wanted to report something that didn\'t seem to work.† Now, if I could just figure out how to view this on my blackberry.†  :)

GregW,

I saw a sign on the back of a Septic cleaning truck that I\'d like to paraphrase:

Satisfaction guaranteed or double your [YAHOO!] back!!!

 :D

Seems to be a problem with the latest posts links at top left hand side unless there really were no new posts in the last week.
Its an important feature so well worth fixing IMO.

Fred,

I have checked the \'Show unread posts since last visit\' where I saw your post (always use this & no problems) and checked the \'View most recent posts\' at the bottom of the index page. Both are working perfectly. Try again. Maybe a communication loss with the server.

Thanks for posting it though.

I am finding the same problem. No new posts were listed but when I look through the lists I find new posts.
