    Unread Indicators

    Eileen,

    I just opened, read, and replied to a single thread in the Access forum. Then I closed IE (the mouse slipped, all right? That wasn't what I meant to do). When I came back in, none of the thread in Access have unread indicators on them, even though there were a fair number of them before. Honest, I did NOT click the uncheck button! So what gives?

    Charlotte: That is the way it works. When you exit a forum, the software saves the date and time. If you exit from your browser, and then start it again, anything in the forum older than that saved time is shown as read. It is a royal PITA when you accidentally shut down your browser, but it is about the only way it can be done and still get reasonable response time. Eileen can correct this if I am incorrect about the way it works.

    Re: Unread Indicators

    Hey, that could count as a great tip! I've often wished I could read just some posting, then make all others as read. <img src=/S/trophy.gif border=0 alt=trophy width=15 height=15>

    Will try this in future!

    Re: Unread Indicators

    BTW, thought I should mention that I have started doing as I indicated in my post of the 18th. That is I read/reply to everything in the threads that I want, logout and back in (of the Lounge) and when I enter the thread all those <img src=/S/new.gif border=0 alt=new width=35 height=15> flags have been cleared.

    I'm now a very happy trooper. Thanks you all so much! <img src=/S/bow.gif border=0 alt=bow width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/bravo.gif border=0 alt=bravo width=16 height=30> <img src=/S/king.gif border=0 alt=king width=21 height=22> <img src=/S/queen.gif border=0 alt=queen width=19 height=20> <img src=/S/bow.gif border=0 alt=bow width=15 height=15>
