Phantom unread topics? Reply to topic


On a couple of my websites, I get some phantom unread topics showing under the list of forums.

So for instance, Forum1 will have the icon showing unread topics.
I go into the Forum, but none of the topics show unread posts.
The only way to clear this is to mark all topics read, then the icon is cleared.

Next time somebody posts, the same issue occurs, even after I read the topic.

Anyone else have the same issue?

Is it with CPG Forums (unbuilt), ForumsPro or ForumPlus?

I have the option of creating parent forums, so I think that means ForumsPro?

Our CPG inbuilt forums does that too ... is this happening in nukeleaguedf.winsto.net ?

Did you ever installed a forum module?
If no, you are using the inbuilt one, otherwise must be either Pro or Plus.

I'm pretty sure it happens on all my DF sites.

The nukeleaguedf site has been lonely for a while now. Have not had time to develop the module any further.

www.mustangtech.com.au is the current site I'm seeing the issue on.
However, I definitely used to see it on www.australianpipebands.com also and it is definitely standard DF forums.

Does the inbuilt forum have archive capabilities?

I might change my profile to www.mustangtech.com.au as that is the site I'm most active on now.

You are using ForumsPlus since that has archiving capability and several other enhanced features.

However, it is simply an enhanced upgrade of standard forums, so it operates the same way as CPG-BB.

Ok no problem.
So what would cause these phantom unread topics?
Is it cookies that determine what's read and what isn't?
Strange thing is, it happens in both Firefox and Chrome.

It only happens in one forum too - the "General Ramble" forum.

hi,

not sure that cookies are what will determine read or unread posts since i connect on multiple computers and the read / unread posts follow me on these computers. so i guess it is stored in the database.
