Unread topics

    The counter does not change at all.


    Take a look at the print



    I got this 1 unread post.


    Clicked at "Unread Posts" and cannot find it.


    Go back to "Community" and still 1 unread post. Go to Woltlab, Blog, Plugin-Store and the 1 unread post never goes away.

  • It may not even be an error, but it bothers.


    If the test posts are not searchable, shouldn't count as unread too.


    @Alexander Ebert can you agree? It shouldn't count as unread post, unless I can find it through the "Unread Posts" link.

    • Official Post

    If a thread is moved to trash bin but has not been read by you, it will still count as unread because in fact it is unread by you. This only changes under these circumstances:

    • The thread gets deleted
    • You mark the containing forum as read or any of it's parents
    • You mark all forums read
    • The thread gets old enough, after a bunch of days it is no longer considered to be unread (not sure how many days it is, have to look it up)

    That's a side affect caused by the way the whole system tracks unread content. Fixing this edge case requires a massive change and is not worth it at this time.

  • The thread gets deleted


    In this case, I thing it should get deleted from my unread also. Guess it makes sense, since I can not read it anyway.

    I see. It's a big work arround to do. Doesn't need it. The system overall works very fine!
