show that there are no more new posts in that forum.
Now, the forum (that I just read) still shows the new posts icon and when I go into that forum, the posts that I just read are still shown in bold text.
The forum eventually (after a minute or two) refreshes to indicate that I've already read that forum and new posts.
Maybe I shouldn't read as quickly as I do.
I hope this all makes sense.
The marking of the forums read or posts read is not a site thing but a cookies thing. It relies on cookies to tell it if you have read that post or forum, and if your browser does not update itself quick enough.. the site will not know it either. Does that make sense?
