Other sites (starting with P) using the same software and owned by the same company as JF allows you to double click the main icon for a forum (a green tire-wheel here, vs a black tire-wheel for 'nothing new') to mark that forum read. Can that be added here? The only way I know to mark a forum as read here is use the Forum Tools pulldown.
Pirate4x4 used vBulletin 3.8.6. Each forum has a skull-crossbones icon where we have the wheels, green bones for read, white bones for 'something inside is unread'. If you double click a white bones, it marks inside threads as read and turns bones green. You don't have to enter the forum to mark everything inside as read, very handy.
I click on the 'Mark Forums Read' every day when I'm done reading here on the main forum page bottom, but next time I come here, most of the threads are not marked read still, so I end up seeing all those and new ones too. Is it just me or ?
Any idea on why even if I hit Mark Forums Read, when I come back they aren't???
I'm not sure of your answer as all seems to work for me. I wanted to reply to mention that this site seems about as quirk-free as I have seen it in years, especially with respect to the read/unread functions.
One of my favorite things to rant about in the past was the a ridiculous setting that said, "Mark the whole site as read after the guy is in JF, but walks away from his computer to take a crap and/or get a beer, and hasn't been back in 10 minutes." I'd get wrapped in an incoming e-mail for a few mins, get back to JF, and all is marked read. I'm really glad thats fixed/changed.
I for one think the current admins are doing a great job in keeping up with issues, thank you.
