Forum: Threads wrongly marked as “unread”, repeating notifications


Topic title says it all:

In the past two or so weeks the forum software shows me notifications for new comments which I’d already seen (i.e. clicked), or marks threads/posts as unread which in fact I have already read.

Logged out and back in already, checked my prefs.


Same for me, it’s like if the forum doesn’t register my actions lately, ie topics reads or dismissed.


OK, now I …

… and for the moment it looks OK

Maybe the recent server switch cause this odd phenomenon? But I know nothing of these things …


Problem seems to be back again :frowning:


Something odd was happening on the forums. I’ve forced an upgrade and restarted them. Let me know if it happens again

[quote]Let me know if it happens again[/quote]Will do, and if I remember I’ll also just reply here if it seems to be gone for good.


Uhm, nope, now I’m getting notifications for comments from five days ago which I have read when they were new :frowning:


I know what’s going on here. I’ll fix it this evening


Just got the second or third notification about your last comment, @matburt :smiley:

There were many more highlighted in blue here before, and I’d read ALL of them before — only the notification about the PM re: name change was NOT shown to me yesterday (i.e. I only got the green notification today) :open_mouth:


This should get automatically straightened out over the next few days… moving to new infrastructure meant we needed to bring our mail relay up and it wasn’t fully up. I brought it back online yesterday but it’s got a few days of work to sort through.


Follow-up: Thanks, @matburt, seems to run smoothly now <happy>
