    Problem With Read Posts

    I see there are only a few of us online now, but are you having a problem with the little red doohickies NOT turning to yellow after you read a thread? I've tried in several boards and after reading a thread, the markers are staying red, as if I hadn't been there.

    All fine in this part of the world!
    Try logging out, deleting your Lounge cookie(s), then logging back in.

    Ditto here, and I second Leif's cure. I've had that problem a few times before and the cookie trick usually fixes it, but I seem to recall a thread (here?) where some had to repair IE to get everything to behave normally. Good luck, I'm off to watch the Le Mans MotoGP on the box <img src=/S/nosleep.gif border=0 alt=nosleep width=27 height=15>

    Dat's da way da cookie crumbles! Well, I don't know what the <img src=/w3timages/censored.gif alt=censored border=0> is going on, but I closed my browser (Mozilla), deleted my WOPR cookie and came back in, with the problem still evident. So, I LOGGED OUT, which I hardly never ever do (!) and then went to another web page. Now, when I came back to the Lounge, the problem has stopped. Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of 'puters, and most of all "Wind-ers"

    Logging out seems to help reset a users 'read' indicators. Using multiple machines always logged on will confuse things, as will using the 'back' button a lot. <img src=/S/eileen.gif border=0 alt=eileen width=17 height=15> would frequently lecture folks about the latter issue! I didn't used to log off , but now I do daily, and I don't have much hassle with the 'doohickies'. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Same MO for me John. Logon and off each session, use the back button sparingly. <img src=/S/eileen.gif border=0 alt=eileen width=17 height=15> is much happier this way, and so would be <img src=/S/claude.gif border=0 alt=claude width=21 height=21> I suspect.

    Re: Problem With Read Posts

    I'm sure you're both right and I'm gonna try to remember to hit the logout button in the future. I don't ever use the back button 'cause I DO remember reading something from Mum, from way back, about that and it stuck with me. I can't for the life of me figure out why logging out helps in these matters, but that's NOT for me to discern - that why we've got Big Cheese! Thanx All!

    Not a problem with MozillaFirebird 0.6. In fact I don't remember having the same problem on earlier Mozillas or Phoenix/Firebird, but then I've been using W2K 9and occasionally WXP). HTH
