Accessing unread posts since last visit.

Show unread posts since last visit.
Show new replies to your posts.

Well we are not sure why the posts sometimes disappear from the list. This seems to be a factor with the Simple Machines Forum coding, there is no fix as of yet for it.

The only work arounds we can find so far the following;

* Leave a window open,
keep the recent posts in one tab open, do not shut down that browser window

* If the Recent posts is empty, go to the bottom of the home page
look for
View the most recent posts on the forum.
at the bottom of the page on the Home page

This link always shows the most recent posts, no matter what the other link shows. Sometimes you need to go back a few pages and start from the last message read.


Happy Forum Day to you all !

I don't know if this helps, but the "Unread posts since last visit" link shows me different posts depending on what computer I'm using at the time.  So, it looks to key on IP address more than username.

Now that is an interesting thought?
Unless you log in with say rogers on one and bell on the other, two different computers in the same house will have the same IP address though.
