Forum shows as containing unread topic after topic has been moved

Recommended Posts

There appears to be a bug where, if a thread has been moved to a different area of the forums, the area where it was formerly which contains the <- link to the now moved topic will always show in bold as though there remains at least one unread topic in that area even though I've viewed every thread in that area, including the thread which has been moved:

The only way to force it to show the area as read is to use the Mark forum as read function which shouldn't be necessary.

That has been a bug for a couple of years. It is a PITA as it still shows up and the sub-forum  has to be marked as "Read". My 5 cents worth (that is the smallest denomination we have ?). Inflation !!!

I agree with Pierre75 in that this bug has existed since March '16 when the forum had a major software upgrade.

Has this been addressed? I have not seen it happen since I posted on June 6, 2018. Thanks in advance.

Yep, it's still happening.  I just had to mark the MB3 support area as read due to a number of threads that were moved to other parts of the forums.  I really wish they'd fix this.  It's very disruptive to my workflow to have to constantly comb through pages of threads just to make sure I haven't missed any then go back and mark the entire thing as read and hope that in that time no new user has posted as I'll probably miss it if they did since it would instantly be marked as read as well (believe it or not this happens more often than you might think, especially given how I frequently refresh the board to seek out new posts/topics).

It is really annoying and still happening.... just marked a few of them as read just to clear things up...

Yes, it's still happening.  It's not a topic, it's when a topic gets moved out of an area, that area remains as unread until you manually mark it as read even if you've viewed every topic (including going to the moved topic via the redirect link within that area of the forum).

I just happened for the Malwarebytes 3 support area due to the thread that was moved from there (the one with the arrow next to it, obviously).

@AdvancedSetup, I wish I could but there is nothing showing up today. It was the usual op where a post had been moved to another section in the forum. From memory after there were no more post to view it repeated "Next Post" and clicking on it showed "Nothing to show - error. Please report" or something to that effect. I killed by usual method "All Posts Read".636813330_Postmoved.jpg.6a526aab5fe6011e7b7affd11caf58f1.jpg

Have attached image of file. Will take an image of message next time it happens.

Confirmed it's still broken just in case anyone was wondering (this very area shows as unread due to a single moved topic).

IPS has made some minor changes. Please log out, delete your cookie for the site. Then restart your computer to rule out any other oddities and try again. Let me know if you're still having issues with Unread Topics

I have noted the continuance of the bug as well and I will see if things have been fixed.

Thank you Ron.

Performed cookie clearance and restarted PC. No problem so far but will keep monitoring it. 🙂
