    In the past, in USER CP (my landing page here), I when I would click on a thread that had a new post in it, when I would go back(a full refresh, note not back on the browser) to USER CP the thread would not be bold and therefore is marked 'read'. Now, even if I go to the thread and read the next post or two, when I go to USER CP, it is still bold like it wasn't read.

    Also, when I make a post and go back to USER CP (same full refresh), it shows my post as the last one, however it is bold again like I didn't read it. Normally, when you post in a thread and go back to USER CP, the thread shows up as read.

    Not a big deal, a bit annoying, LOL, but something that doesn't seem right/departure from the past. :)

    My apologies if I missed an announcement.

    Staff: Earthdog, please clear your browser cache...

    ED: OK.......that didn't work.


    BUMP... is this me or what as this is pretty darn annoying (and the only site it happens on). Would love to hear from some staff or someone that is or is not having the problem so I know to look in the mirror further or wait until this is resolved. Thanks!

    I get the same thing. I dunno if it's a glitch or a vB "feature".

    Interesting. What's going to be in its place?

    Thanks for the reply! :rockout:

    I have been hearing that for months over a year! Just anxious to have this new version in production since no problems are being fixed until the move is made. :)

    I need to find some "free" time to work on this, I've been kinda busy with recent GPU launches. It's just not high priority because the existing forum works well.

    Yeah, had high hopes for vBulletin 5, turned out to be epic fail.

    In that thread, I think he already told you no? But of course, things can change.

    That was almost two years ago and I remembered that answer too, but things change over time so one asks again, no?

    I see that wizzy hasn't bothered to answer my question this time.

    XF has a nice editor on it. Less issues the IPB has. IPS breaks the editor almost every "upgrade".

    I used to work for em and 90% of the support tickets for the 1.7months I worked there involved the editor and something was borked all the time.

    No shit, tell me about it. :rolleyes: Pathetic, unreasonable problems like this render it toy software.

    I really hope we get a decent editor with XF.
    remixedcat says thanks.
