Thanks. A couple of other people have seen that message as well. I think I've sorted it, but please let me know if you see it again!

I take it this upgrade is whats caused all read messages to revert to unread next time I lg on? Most annoying!!! It used to be great - perfectly clear what you had read and what you hadn't - why the change?

Actually the 'new' forum is an improvement in that respect. Yes, the first time you log on following the upgrade everything has reverted to unread status, but once you've read the new posts, marked everything as 'read' and logged off, next time only new posts will be highlighted and will not mark themselves as read unless you have actually looked at the thread again since the new post was added - an improvement for those of us who get distracted, as detailed by John in his earlier post (see below):

You may have noticed that if you start to catch up on the latest messages but get distracted by the kids, someone at the door, or the boss unexpectedly appearing, by the time you get back to the forums all the messages have been marked as read. No more! Unread messages stay "unread" until you actually read them or mark them as read. You can click on the "Mark Forums Read" link at the bottom of the forum home page, or mark individual sections as read by double-clicking on the status icon in the list of forums.

As Louise said, it's just the first time that you log on after the upgrade.

The new system is a vast improvement, because it actually tracks which messages you have read instead of timing them all out after a certain time.

John.

How come the threads that I view never seem to get updated like they used to do. It seems like everytime I come back on RIBNET I am viewing threads that I have already seen.

I am using IE Explorer 32 Bit.

Regards Nick.

I don't know. It's working exactly as advertised for me!

Have you tried marking all the forums as read and seeing if that sorts it out?
