Topics shows as unread indefenetly if last post is made in whisper

I just received complain from my user that unread badges doesn’t disappear when some topics are read. Unread badge disappears only if user changes topic following level to normal.

It appears that whisper posts are causing this behavior. When I deleted last post in topic (which was made in whisper) and asked user to look again at topic. Unread badge disappeared without a problem.

Is this what makes staff whisper communication an experimental feature? Or this is just a bug?

My instance is running on latest “test passed” version v1.7.0.beta7 +209.

Correct, this is a limitation of whispers, otherwise we have to keep a second global set of unread positions on all topics. As covered in many other topics.
