What\'s up with the new post counters?

Those itallic red numbers near the thread postcount number. It counts my post to the thread as a new one, and they stay there even after I've seen the thread. I can make them act like they're supposed to if I exit the BBS and come back later, but that's not the way it is supposed to work. It's really no big deal, but I liked it when they worked. Maybe there is a browser setting I can change or a line of code you can fix, but I'd appriciate it if someone looked into this.

Re: What\'s up with the new post counters?

my opinion probably dosen't count for much, but, I'm not having any trouble at all with the counters. They work just fine, I like the way I can see the "red" #'s to let me know that there is a new post that I haven't read yet.

Re: What\'s up with the new post counters?

yeah i've encountered that "problem" also... i just close the browser and when i open it back up the counts are updated. it could be a cookie setting, but i dunno. patrick had them turned off one day, maybe there is a bug in there now?

I see that too. I have to remember which ones I have read until I close the window and reopen it. Then it shows which ones are new when I reopen explorer. It's a little annoying sometimes.

Re: What\'s up with the new post counters?

Are you logging on from more than 1 or 2 different computers?

I was having the same problem when I would log on at 2 or 3 different computers at work, plus the one at home. When I was able to log back in from all of the places I had logged on before and chose the "logout" at the top of the screen it cleared up that same problem

Hope this helps
