Threads read still show up as unread (bold) using "back"

Well, the title kinda says it all:
If I click on a thread to read it, and then hit the browser "back" button, the threads I've read keep showing up in bold.

If there is a way to adjust this, it would help me personally.. I know I can scroll (urgh, more scrolling) to the top of the page and click on the sub-forum name to get an updated thread list, but I'm used to my lazy previous way.

Have you tried refreshing the page?

The old "unread threads" page worked the same way-- it occasionally updated on its own but you usually had to refresh it.

I don't spend much time here— please send a PM.

If you refresh - it does "un bold".

I keep hating to read a thread, go back, then click "go to last post" of next thread - any way to go automatically to the last unread in next/below thread ?

The database manages your session (marking what has been read and what has not) and if you go back there is a chance the page is cached in your browser (which it sounds like in this case). You will have to refresh the page to get the Bold/Unbold to show up.

Dave, I have made a note of your request and will look for a solution.
