New discussions not showing on home page
« on: February 18, 2015, 12:47:34 PM »
Not sure what's going on, but this has been happening for the past two weeks.  On the CC home page the little "New" icon is not showing next to the forums that do indeed have new topics or conversations.  Is there something I need to do on my end?  It's not that huge of a deal; I go on and check the forums I'm interested in anyway.  Each time I check, though, there are new posts even though the home page doesn't indicate that there is.

You're maybe seeing this?



Punch on the + box on the left hand side of the last blue line, to get this:

Democrats: A bunch of rich people convincing poor people to vote for rich people by telling poor people that other rich people are the reason they are poor

Life is short, and suddenly you're not there any more.

Ooops.

The problem's something else.

<<<jumped to conclusions; sorry.

Actually, Frank, that's what I'm seeing except that some of the forums have the "New" icon visible and others don't despite there being new topics since my last visit.

Yeah, when I re-read your question after posting, I realized that.

<<<has a habit of reading, answering, and then re-reading.

That's odd; what I see is that the icons on the left hand side on the home page indicating individual forums are pale blue, and if there's something I haven't read yet in them, they're dark blue.

This is an old bug that goes back to the days of YaBB (the software that SMF started as) - and sometimes one needs to fix it with a hammer. Usually hitting 'Mark all messages as read' will fix it for any future new messages.
