\"NEW\" flag

What's up with the [img] http://bbs.off-road.com/wwwthreads_images/new.gif [/img] flag. If I go to a two page post, and don't wait long enough before I hit either | <font color=blue>2</font color=blue> | <font color=blue>(show all)</font color=blue>, the flag never clears. A while ago I hit a couple of topics but they were so slow that they never showed, but when I hit reload on the index page, their new flags were gone. Anybody else have this happen?

I've replaced so many parts that my old Jeep has become my new Jeep.

Re: \"NEW\" flag

I has to do with cookies. Once you've viewed a page, the "new" flags are cleared. The way it works also causes it to clear the entire post or range of posts even if you only read the first one. This is from the FAQ (listed above):

<font color=red>Do I have to accept cookies?

Yes. Cookies are used to track your Username/Password and which posts you have read for your current session. Without accepting cookies some functions won't work properly.</font color=red>
