Default Threads/Forums being marked as read

Hi all,

Is anyone else having this issue on this site? For the past few weeks threads and forums are being marked as read so it looks like I have read threads but in reality I actually haven't.

It's like I'm clicking on "Mark forum as read" at the bottom of the forum but I have not clicked that once. It keeps happening to me for some reason and gets a tad annoying as you start to think I have read a specific thread but then realise someones posted in there like 10 minutes ago for example and you haven't actually read anything. It happens across the whole forum, regardless of section.

Anyone else having the same problem? Thought I would make a thread to make it aware to the admins of the forum to see if it's an account problem or just an odd bug within the forum itself. It also seems to happen regardless of device I am logged into on the forum as well.

I've had it as well, it's some kind of glitch, like with the threads/posts which were disappearing recently, that seems to have returned to normal again now though.

I'm logged in when it happens as well, although it seems to be working fine just now.

Thanks guys, can you test it again and let me know if it's still happening? If it is, can you try testing with a different browser to see if it's cookie related?

Hi, logged in again this evening (UK time) and DAC seems to be working again normally, using my usual browser, Firefox. Tested it in Chrome and that was OK too.

I was logged out this morning and I couldn't see any new posts or recent comments. They magically appeared when I logged in. Weird!

Hello all,

There will be some caching issues that will not show the most current posts when logged out.

Please log in for optimal user experience.

that happens to me on at least one other forum. can't see latest posts if logged out. so perhaps not so weird. maybe just how some forums work.

Note that if you're logged out, you're seeing an older cached version of the site.
Once you're logged in, you should be seeing newer and updated threads.

This still happens for me - Normally to sections I don't typically read like the 1:200 section. But i would still be nice to know what I haven't actually read. But they get marked as read for whatever reason.

If a post has no updates after 10 days, it will auto be marked as read. Are you finding it's happening to you faster then that?

Could I ask the reason behind that? As I don't remember that being normal behaviour for a vBulletin forum. I just find it quite strange you would enforce such a setting. So I'm interested in the reasoning behind that?

If that is the case then that is probably what is happening to me then :P

It's part of VBulltetin software. We can set it any length of time we want, but I guess the theory is that if someone hasn't read a thread for that length of time, then they probably aren't going to
