Mark forum as read

Recommended Posts

Usually when I click on "Mark forum as read" I get a popup asking me to confirm. Every so often (and it's happening right now) there's no popup, but the page is refreshed, with all the topics shown as read. It takes two back clicks to get back to the main forums page. After a while the behavior has returned to normal.

Is this something to do with my browser playing up, or is it an issue with the forum software?

could be your browser just being slow and playing up and not showing the confirmation box. not seen that happen yet myself. but I do clean out my browser cache and cookies every few days to keep it running smoothly.

I've never before had it mark the forum as read without the popup confirmation box - until today.   I clicked on the 'Mark forum as read' link in a few forums yesterday and it did give the confirmation box every time.  I've also clicked that link a few times today and have not yet had a confirmation box.

With the logins being shut down earlier due to issues on the grid, it seems to have had an effect on the forum as well since I'm pretty sure LL hosts the forum (software) themselves on their own server (hardware). While the forum doesn't always "crash" when the grid goes into muscle spasms, that doesn't mean the server it is on isn't affected as well. There have been other "odd" things to happen on the forum to others today.

I think that means we aren't alone. 🙃

I noticed this evening that if I use the "Mark site read" link in the upper right of the main forum page, that it still gives a confirmation box.  Still not on individual sub-forums.

It seems to have returned to what I think is meant to be expected behaviour, with a confirmation dialog, just now.

To say nothing of the Mark Topic as Read option in the preview floater occasionally taking you to the first page of the thread itself (still marking it as read) instead of marking it without taking you into the thread.
