Re: Show unread posts since last visit - not working?

Sorry to hear about your wreck Jim. I am 2 months past mine, and still not back to normal. Like () said, it isn't only broken bones- all that cartilage and tendon and ligament took a good whack too.

Re: Show unread posts since last visit - not working?

There are many reports of problems with unread posts not working in the latest version of this software (for other sites) but no solutions or causes posted. It hasn't failed for me yet. I think my next step may be to log in as dex or Haha and see if it fails for me masquerading as them. The passwords are stored encrypted, but I should be able to save and restore the encrypted password but use a temporary password to log myself in. I'm not sure if it will affect the cookie login, and I'm not sure what time would be good to try impersonating one or the other. dex? HaHa?

FWIW, it will have to be in the database, which stores last login, and not cookies. I can switch among computers, even ones I have never used before, and the Show Unread Posts feature works fine for me. So the forum software is not looking at cookies for this info.

Anytime you want. If I am on at that time, send me*a mesage and I'll sign off. Also, I rarely get up before 9am Pacific so anytime in your morning should work.

Thanks for checking into it. It is weird- occasionally there will be few posts. But if I look through the categories from the homepage, there are way more that I haven't seen. As far as I know, "New replies to your posts" works fine.

Careful Jim...if you log in as Ha you might become infected with curmudeonly factors. I hear one of the first signs of being a first tier curmudgeon is thinking your recent posts button has stopped working...
