Unread posts count
#1
Noticed a strange thing a couple of times recently - read/acknowledge all the obvious unread posts but it still says there are X unread posts.

So you click on to view the unread posts and it lists some randomly last posted April 2016 - usually from the Vintage machines section.

I'll run a database check once I get my computer up and running again. Haven't done one for ages and I need to. Also need to do an update and also fix some other problems

Ahh nice... a few PC gurus on this board then Smile

I do it for friends and colleagues (so sideline more than anything else) and I trade in alcohol! Also, I have a buddy who does DIY for me as I'm not good at that, and I'll do his computers (upgrades / virus removal etc). It works really well because we're trading favours in goodwill and not a single penny goes to the tax man because there is no legal tender involved in the first place Smile

I have a taxi driver mate who's internal phone wiring was ballsed. So I did that and sorted him some power line ladapters and haven't paid for a taxi since :). If I do fold and agree to do it, the price is case of Guinness or bottle of whiskey.

I'm currently doing a multi site infrastructure upgrade so I barely open my laptop when home unless it's business

Do you click the mark all threads read ?

It's just that if there's been no new posts since you last clicked unread posts then they will be old unread posts that you haven't read yet?

No mate I always read the threads (or select them as though I am reading them) so those in my example I read a longgggggggg time ago.

In this case I marked them read.

What I'm saying is unread posts are always 0 when i logout - every so often old ones seem to just pop up again.

Probably an out of date mod or something to do with cookies.

I'm due a full board reinstall, it's just getting the time to do it.
