Happened again on the Reviews thread. I can't believe I spent 1.5 hours on a review and then had to redo it all over again. Seriously wondering what's going on--Dammit it happened again.

So far i can see it's only with replies to posts. The only thread it doesn't happen to is this one.

Hi Fury

I'm noticing that when I click "Show unread posts since last visit" hyperlinks at the bottom or top of the forum page, that it displays a slightly different list of unread threads from clicking on the "Unread" link from the tool bar. 

I've taken screen shots below that show the date and time, and the different listings.

Cheers

theres is a reason for that but i cant remember what it is, as you can see from the bread crumbs for the bottom one (unread from menu bar) it has the extra identifier "All Unread Topics" i'm not sure what its using to shorten the list in the first screen shot but its deliberate on behalf of the forum software, i think i will change the link in the top of the forum so it shows all too

Wouldn't that be the way it's worded?

One says since last visit, one says unread.

Could it be that the unread version is showing all unread posts no matter what time frame as opposed to only those since the last visit. So if you don't click "Mark all posts read", when you select unread posts the one's you didn't look at will come up again but if you select since last visit it will only show posts that were made since you were last logged on.

True that.  Two different functions for viewing unread threads.  Thanks guys  :)

One other thing people should be aware of is that for reasons only known to the bloke who died yesterday, when you click on the "View the most recent posts on the forum" at the bottom of the front page under the "latest post" you will not see any pictures that are attached to the post via the forum software. You will see externally hosted pictures or attachments but not forum hosted pictures or attachments  :o :-\

huh thats a different way to view the latest post with 0 context, no idea why it doesn't show images but its a conscious decision by the forum creators
