To the Forum Admins
« on: February 10, 2013, 05:29:50 am »

I'm not that familiar with this forum software, but I've run into an issue that is somewhat maddening to say the least. I check the forum from multiple devices and if I list unread topics from one device, they'll no longer show on another. Is there a setting that would allow unread topics to actually STAY unread and show up when you select "Show unread posts" from another machine?

And.... What would you guys say if I were to donate a license for IPB forum software? All you'd have to do is pay for the license extensions which is fairly cheap.

Well, there's the difference between 'unread since last visit' and 'unread'. The link on the forum typically shows 'unread since last visit', so if you then change device you'll probably be logged out and in again, resulting in a new visit. Hence no (or very little) posts since last visit.

When I have no more 'unread since last visit' posts, I usually get the option to 'show all unread', which is what I prefer anyhow. Perhaps you could visit http://forum.vectorlinux.com/index.php?action=unread;all instead of your normal link. I have that page bookmarked for easy access on my computers.
