    All marked as read??

    Noticed that recently if I've visited say the Word forum and then go elsewhere - say another website - when I return to the Lounge all posts are marked read - that is, no red folder. Did I inadvertently do something or are there gremlins about?

    That's because you're using flat view. Once you open a thread with that, it counts it all as read.

    But it's marking all forums as read, not just the thread I've opened. It did not used to do that for me.

    Patricia,

    All forums, or all threads in a single forum?

    I went to another website, then closed down IE. When I revisited the Loiunge, all the marked boards were STILL marked...

    Hi Geoff - Yes - All forums, not just a single forum. However upon this particular venture into the Lounge I logged in again and the forums I had NOT previously visited were still marked with red folders. Do you think it has something to do with the fact that I often don't logout ... for example, I may login at my computer at work and forget to logout but at home I login again? I admit I do not always logout whether at home or office. <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    Patricia,

    I'm on IE6, and I hardly ever log out. I have not had that trouble at all.

    The only thing which sometimes happens is that I open a newer thread without opening older threads- when I revisit the forum, anything older has been marked as thread. So I'm always careful to read the older ones first.

    If I log off, and then come onto the board without logging back on, nothing shows in red.
