View Full Version : updated the way unread posts and threads are handled

One of the problems we have been having with the new tweb is the way that unread threads have been handled when you click on "What's New?" in the navbar. It seemed to keep losing track of unread threads after a few minutes.

I made a change to the way vBulletin handles and marks threads as "read"

The side effect is that you might end up with a bunch of your old subscriptions showing up as "unread" since it uses a different method of tracking which is read and unread. This will clear up once you go through and read your subscriptions, or even faster if you choose "Mark Forums Read" from the navbar under "Forum Actions" or just click below

http://www.theologyweb.com/campus/forumdisplay.php?do=markread&markreadhash=1420729517-bbf23ec875673eeed0d02b0c32c2b3db8e9c6d7d

You might want to go through and read any newer subscribed threads first though because it will mark those as 'read' too and you might miss some posts since your last check in.

PS for those who don't know how to check your subscriptions, just click "settings" at the top right of the web page. That shows you the threads you have subscribed to by posting in. If you click the small circle icon in front of the thread name it takes you to the first unread post.

I told you all. click the "mark all forums read" and start over fresh. simple.

and yes, it was all my idea and doing. I got tired of seeing unread threads, then coming back to the site 30 minutes later and they were all gone even though I didn't read any of them. Hopefully this will fix that.

If you don't like it, then blame Jaltus!

Nope.

He might have signed up, but he isn't around much at all.

He has, but not much. I've heard that having twins will do that to a guy.
