Buttons Missing?

Recommended Posts

I just came back, and of three pages of threads shown by "View New Posts" there seem to be nine that don't have the button, even though the time of the last post is this morning and I haven't been here since yesterday.

For me, the only folders that are showing up as unread are the hot topics. Everything else has been greyed out, whether I've read them or not.

It is showing up this way in both Safari and Firefox.

Having the same problem here- greyed out folders, even though I haven't read the new posts. I use Firefox.

My "go to last unread" buttons are also missing, both at home and at work. We use MS Internet Explorer and neither home nor work has had any kind of an upgrade lately.

'Tis a bit annoying. I relied heavily on the "last unread" button.

My last visit is shown as October 11 (Thursday) at 10:45 pm EDT. I have been and gone many, many times since, using two different computers for access. Sometimes it has lagged, but if I switched to the other computer it always caught up. I just reconnected from my laptop; my previous use was about 2 hours ago on the desktop. In the past it would say my last activity was when I last clicked from the other machine. It is still stuck on Thursday night. 10:45 is probably accurate as the last time I was online that evening.

FWIW. :(

Huh. When I clicked on "view new posts" this time to see if there had been any more responses to this topic, I couldn't see it. (It's possible my glasses need cleaning ;) ) Then when I clicked on the sub-forum Board/forum technical help all the topics in there had the "view last unread" tab on them.

I'm confused. :blink:

Same here. Here's my best guess: it looks like I *do* have the button for threads that I've looked at previously, but not for any others. So maybe someone decided that we don't need that button if we've never looked at the thread before? Still, I'd rather have them back.

Hi Everyone,

I did upgrade on Friday, and there are some issues with the new version. The Mark Read posts should not be fixed...let me know if it isn't. Also, the rest should be fixed shortly...sorry!

Take care,

Scott

I still don't have the "view last unread" buttons on the "view new posts" page. I guess some of you have it back (Momma Goose and jerseyangel)? Or should I only be able to "view last unread" from the topic category? I do have that ability. I just like the "view new posts" to catch up quickly.

Linda,

I do have the 'last unread' buttons on the 'view new post' page back. They appeared about 2 days or so ago. I know Scott upgraded the board over last weekend.

I don't know why you still can't see them--maybe the upgrade isn't complete? I wish I knew more about how this all works!

If it keeps up, you could email Scott.

Is it me ...or have the "go to last unread" buttons disappeared?

This is an interesting question to me.

I find this board to be very un-user friendly because I can't tell which posts I've read and which I haven't. I always click on View New Posts because that helps me narrow it down, but then I click on a topic that I think I've read and maybe have posted to, I have to scroll through all the posts to see if I've read them and guess which ones are new. Sometimes I jump to the last message and work my way backwards. When there are pages and pages of posts, it takes a long time.

This posting indicates that there is a second way to narrow down my search? That there is a button I can push that will take me to the postings within a topic that I haven't seen yet?

I can't find a button that says "go to last unread." All I see is the "Last post by" button.

That would be wonderful and I wouldn't find the functionality of this board so user-challenging.

I have the "View New Posts" link, and it will take me to new posts, however it's now going on 15 pages and growing everyday! As well, the board is showing that I've read messages at first, but then revert to unread regardless of whether there have been new posts or not. Seems there's still some bugs to work out!
