    Unread Flags Not Updating

    I have noticed a problem with the unread flags not updating today. When I first came into the Lounge this morning, the flags were updating just fine. After visiting four or five forums, the unread flags on the threads in the forum list stopped updating when I used the Go button to return to the forum list. The thread that I had just left was still marked as unread. Even if I used the browser reload button, it still showed as unread. I shut down my browser, started it back up, came back to the Lounge. The flags were working as they should, until I had visited another four or five forums. They then went back to not working again. I do have my browser (Netscape 4.77) options set to check for changes on every visit.

    I think it may happen when I edit the scripts. I've noticed it before when I've been uploading new stuff.

    Then you must be doing a lot of editing. It is still happening NOW.

    Re: Unread Flags Not Updating

    Eileen: A little additional information. If I click on a thread in the forum message list and then use the Jump button to return to the forum message list without clicking on any of the other messages in the thread, the unread flag for that thread is NOT reset. If I click on a thread in the forum message list, then read another message in the thread, then click on Jump to return to the forum message list, the unread flag for the thread IS reset.

    Re: Unread Flags Not Updating

    Eileen,
    Just tried Legare 's method and the unread flags cleard on the threads that I had read in that group. I am using IE 5.01, under Win2K, and lounge in the <img src=/S/flatcat.gif border=0 alt=flatcat width=61 height=21> mode.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Oh <img src=/S/bummer.gif border=0 alt=bummer width=15 height=15> it looks as though the upgrade didn't fix it properly after all.
    I believe he has a bugfix due in a couple of days - let's keep our fingers crossed.
