Next unread post tracking not working
 
When I login again after being away for an hour or two, the forums are showing me the same unread posts as before at the moment. Something isn't getting updated.

That's how it always is for me.

I just ignored it. Didn't seem like a major issue - I always know what I have / haven't read.

It's working normally this morning.

(It's a bit odd how it works anyway - if I spend too long looking at or answering one post, it decides I've seen everything else anyway, which can be a nuisance, but if I come back in a new session after only a few minutes, it may show me the same stuff I've already seen).

For me, it usually shows a number of posts unread. I'll read and leave.

When I come back shortly after for new posts, it will have the new ones plus all of those old ones marked.

This happens two or three times and then just stops.

Is "next unread" something you only get if you subscribe? I've never seen it, and I came here to ask why not.

On the left of each post where the time / date is shown there is a small icon.

It is blue for read and orange for unread.

Thanks, but Wow. Is that supposed to be intuitive? I wouldn't have noticed that in a hundred years.

On another vBulletin board I frequent, they have a prominent menu item in each thread that says "View First Unread" and takes you there.
