"Mark forum as read"


The "Mark forum as read" option no longer needs to be used. Now when all topics on the specific forum have been read, the "New" flag is removed automatically.

Well, that requires that you read each topic, right? I usually read 3-5 topics, then I click "Mark forum as read". So, it's usefull. Anyway, that's a Runboard feature, I can't remember if that is to configure.

This only seems to work on some forums(e.g. "Ritchie Ronnie and Related", "Glenn Hughes", etc.) It doesn't work on the "Current Members outside DP" forum.

Anyone know why?

Nope, it works for me on all forums. Maybe your browser cachees some boards more "sticky" than others? (I don't believe it, but it the closest to an explanation I can come)

It's the automatic mark read thing that's not working on all forums, not the "Mark Forum as read" button.

If you read all posts in "Glenn Hughes" and go back to the main board, then the "New" flag is cleared.

If you read all posts in "Current Members outside DP" and go back to the main board the "New" flag is not cleared.

I've noticed that on some other boards. I don't know what's causing it but my current theory is that it's to do with new votes in a poll. Haven't yet proved that conclusively, though...
