My own post is marked unread when “don’t jump to post” preference is enabled


(Eli the Bearded) #1

Let’s say I’m tracking a topic. I’ve read everything in it, and then select a post besides the last one to reply to. My own post then gets flagged as a new unread post for me in “latest” or suggested topics. But I wrote it, so I have read it.

Is this intentional behavior? I didn’t notice it happening until the last few months.

As an aside, when I try to duplicate this bug on try.discourse, I can’t. It seems like the “Don’t jump to my post after I reply” preference is ignored there, so any post jumps me to that post and it is, thus, “read”.


Posts I write should automatically be read

I have never seen this behavior. We’d need repro steps.

Like I said, I’ve been trying to reproduce it here:

but I can’t get the “Don’t jump to my post after I reply” preference to work for the test.

So this is tied to that preference?


(Eli the Bearded) #5

Yes. And I got it reproduced there.

  1. Set the preference. The wording is confusing IMHO, but check the box next to “Don’t jump to my post after I reply”
  2. Log out.
  3. Log in again.
  4. Have a long topic (several screenfuls is enough) for which you have read everything.
  5. Go to a post that isn’t at the end of that topic. I used a bookmark for my second test.
  6. Reply to the post.
  7. Return to “Latest” for:


Posts not being flagged as read due to CSS changes

Well this is an old topic…

This issue came up today on one of our sites. It does require Don't jump to my post after I reply to be enabled, but it’s still reproducible.
