Show unread posts since last visit - not working?

Show unread posts since last visit function is not working for me lately. Any suggestions? A few days ago I did hit mark as read on each of the forums.

Thanks

That's odd because it is working fine for me today. I wonder if it could be a browser issue. I use Firefox. What are you all using?

It works for me and I use Firefox at work and Safari at home. Maybe an IE problem?

Nothing has changed on the server side, and it works fine for me (using IE).

Best guess -- somehow cookies have been disabled on your PCs. Any chance that has happened?

I use IE.

It works for me at work, or on my laptop, but it has not been working on my home desktop for at least 2-3 weeks (not sure, don't use that machine much).

I just assumed I had an old version of IE or something.

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

I dont know if its related, but i've noted in a few places where I made a post and then on the redraw my post appeared above the one I was responding to, and i've had a couple of cases where I've looked at a thread, then later on the same thread showed 'new' and when I looked at it the 'new' post was one i'd already read.

Seems like some kind of pointers or indexes or something may be slightly scrambled. Seems to me this started about a week or two ago. Is there some kind of index or something that can be 'rebuilt' on this database?

There are some "pushbutton" diagnostic and maintenance things for the database, and I have just pushed them. The diagnostics showed no errors. The table optimization was completed with no error messages.

Let's see if that helps...

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

I'm back from my trip but need lots of rest and ibuprofen. My rented Corolla got rear ended by a Texas Cadillac (GMC Yukon, = Suburban). It was a week ago, but I'm still feeling the effects.

A few have reported this problem, and likely there are others that have had it and haven't reported it. Offhand I'm not sure how to troubleshoot it, but see what I can figure out this week.

Sorry to hear about your accident BMJ, but you rented a Corolla in Texas? You don't stand a chance around here in one of those motorized go carts.

When in Rome (or Dallas Austin)...

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

Well, a Corolla is what I got when I asked for a mid-size. I shudder to think of what I'd get if I asked for a compact. ("Here's your Hot Wheel, sir. Pull the toothed plastic strip to get it going...") Actually the Corolla seemed to take the hit pretty well...better than I did, anyway.

I don't think so, but I am concerned that I'm still feeling the effects a week later. I'm prescribing myself lots of rest and ibuprofen for the next two days, then I'm heading to the doctor if I still can feel it. Glad I didn't sign the injury waiver for the dangling $250 carrot yet.

Chiropractor. And you may need to see one for some time so make sure any settlement covers that. Every piece of connective tissue in your body just took a heck of a jolt.
