    data storage for unread posts

    it seems that data to determine whether a post/thread is new or not is being stored on the device used to peruse the forums. Could the box be clicked to store that data on the server instead? It's possible. I view the forum on a few different devices and computers and whether something is new or not is dependent on whether I've looked at it on said device, rather than whether or not I've looked at it at all. It would make browsing much more efficient.

    actually it does work for me, I view on phones, tablets, PCs and macs at varying times, and it does seem that when I view on one devices, as long as I'm logged in as me, the next time I visit on the next device, it knows what I saw....


    I use the "what's new" link exclusively

    hmmm. I use "new posts". It also doesnt seem to know what I have read or not read in any forum I'm looking at. If I read it in my iphone, its still unread on my macbook.

    this is still a problem. the cookies for what is read and unread are being stored on the computer stuff is being viewed on, NOT the server. its not a lot of work to change this.

    this is an example. I read all pages and posted in this thread, and yet it still shows as unread a half an hour later.

    a response from admins would be nice? Check this option in the forum settings to see if its set like this.

    This option controls how threads and forums are marked as read.
    1. Inactivity/Cookie Based - once a user has been inactive for a certain amount of time (the value of the session timeout option) all threads and forums are considered read. Individual threads are marked as read within a session via cookies.

      This option is how all versions of vBulletin before 3.5 functioned.
    2. Database (no automatic forum marking) - this option uses the database to store thread and forum read times. This allows accurate read markers to be kept indefinitely. However, in order for a forum to be marked read when all threads are read, the user must view the list of threads for that forum.

      This option is more space and processor intensive than inactivity-based marking.
    3. Database (automatic forum marking) - this option is the same as a previous option, but forums are automatically marked as read when the last new thread is read.

      This is the most usable option for end users, but most processor intensive.
