    Why is everything marked new?

    Why is everything tagged as a new/unread thread everytime I login now? It wasn't like that before. Is there something I can do to fix that?

    was wondering the same thing....?? do we have to go into all the old threads now to get the "new" post off of the icons?

    Not sure why this is happening. I'm not seeing it. Can you start by trying this link:

    Re: Why is everything marked new?

    I'm still having the issue.... when I click New Posts it's showing New Posts and then all posts that haven't been updated but still have unread posts.... this isn't how the forum used to work, New Posts would literally just display New Posts....

    can this functionality be put back to how it used to work? Otherwise I have to continually go into my profile and mark all posts as read each time or the number of pages displayed on New Posts just keeps going up and up

    Re: Why is everything marked new?

    Well, now it doesn't seem to updating anymore. When I log out and then back in, the same stuff that was marked as new is the same stuff marked as new when I log back in minus the few threads I read. Is there an easy way to mark all things as read prior to logging out?????

    I have a theory on this... I think vbulletin changed this behavior in a recent update.

    phpbb did the same thing. It used to be that when you logged out, everything was marked as read. In the 3.0 release they changed it so that read/unread is remembered.

    For those of us that switch between 3-4 desktop/laptop/mobile devices over the course of a day, this is really helpful.

    Once I've read everything I'm going to read, I click "Mark forums read" under the quick links menu on the forum homepage. That sets everything to read, and I'm done.
