If I go to my “Unread” tab and click on one of the topics, it takes me to the most recent post. This is great to help me get up to speed on what I’m tracking. However, the post/topic is never dismissed and remains in the unread tab.
If I navigate back to the unread tab and refresh, the same list of topics is shown. Clicking on a topic I’ve already read takes me back to the same most recent post.
How can I keep the unread tab up to date showing only topics that I haven’t read?
In case it’s related, an observation from my forums: until I upgraded to latest last night (~20 commits behind), myself and at least one other user were seeing issues with topics not being (reliably) marked as read when using Chrome on Android.
I have not observed any specific issues with the Unread tab as of yet though (here or on my forums, with any particular OS/browser combo).
It’s a new bug, and it seems to have started happening over at QT3 in the past 2 week or so.
It’s sporadic and doesn’t always happen, but it’s annoying
I only ever see it happen when browsing via Chrome on Android, not when using Firefox on Windows.
Note, this happens even with the suggested threads things. E.g. I see a blue (2), click it, read to bottom, click a new suggested thread, read to bottom , and the old threads is there at a blue (2) again. It’s lead to a few cases of deja vu lately
I have people reporting this on my forum too. Chrome on Android only it appears (so I haven’t seen it). Sometimes when re-entering topics it doesn’t remember what they have recently read. Seems to be happening the last couple of weeks.
Yup, Chrome on Android is where I’m seeing the issue.
I am also specifically using the homescreen app version like @pfaffman. I’ll try and confirm whether or not it happens in the regular browser version as well, might take a bit because the issue does not happen with 100% consistency, seems to come and go throughout the day.
It happened just now with the home screen version and I switched to Chrome and it went away. It will be difficult to debug as it seems to happen every day or two and I’m in meta on my ogle quite a bit. Switching to chrome is likely the solution.
I was annoyed by not having a forward option in the desktop version anyway.
Currently in one of the time periods where everything seems to be working correctly (un?)fortunately. Although a hard reload did drop the unread count from 90 to 72 for me, so maybe there was still some lingering issue.
I was just having the problem here. I could navigate in and out of some unread topics, pausing to read each post, and they continued to show as unread with the same counter value.
I tried reloading on the front page, but things were still unread. Then I closed the browser tab and things still showed unread.
Then I navigated in and out of the topics again, pausing to read each post, and finally they appeared as read.
I’m unsure if the reload or the close/reopen tab got things working again, but in any case it was still necessary to browse to the topics afterwards. So it appears something was not working correctly in the “write” process rather than the “read” process.
