Posts wrongly marked as "New Posts"?

Postby JS » Thu Oct 25, 2007 4:42 pm

Firstly, I apologise if this is a pebkac issue.

Usually when I come to the forums, I check View your posts and View posts since last visit for any interesting posts. However, sometimes, apparently randomly, after refreshing the above pages, posts I have just read appear as "New Posts" (orange icon), so I think, "oh, someone's posted something else" and check it again; in actual fact, nothing new has been posted, yet it is still marked as unread.

Is this a bug with the forum, user, ISP cache... ?

I'm using Firefox; any other relevant info I'll happily provide.

Oh, and it also happens with the forum index. And the post links on the left, under "On the forums // Latest Posts" are marked as unread (orange) until I log out/in - even my posts, odd, no?!

I've occasionally seen this, but only usually when moving from one computer to another. It doesn't happen often enough to bother me.
Bye, Rhakios

I've only seen this when I look at "View your posts" and "View posts since last visit" and I use a middle click to open the new posts in a new tab. IRC once I've looked at those posts doing a browser forced refresh (Shift + Refresh) the icons work correctly again.
