I believe (could be wrong) that the 'Show unread posts since last visit (http://360fahrenheit.com/fahrenh1_forum1/index.php?action=unread)' link pulls from your internet browser's cache.  If this is true, then new laptop = empty cache = no record of unread posts.

I notice the same thing when I visit the site on my home computer, as opposed to my work computer that I mostly use on the forum.  My remedy is using the 'View the most recent posts on the forum (http://360fahrenheit.com/fahrenh1_forum1/index.php?action=recent)' link at the bottom of the site.

However, I could be wrong.  If anyone that isn't using a different computer is noticing a similar problem, post here and let me know.

Thanks for confirming, Maiby.

Are you also seeing this after accessing the site from 2 different computers?  Or is this something you experience using the same computer?

I made some backend changes that store user 'cookies' on the server instead of your computer.

PRO:  Your activity is recorded globally so unread topics should now follow you regardless of what computer you're using.
CON:  You might experience more 'Logouts', meaning you may have to type in your username & password more often.

Like any fix, you never know what additional problems they might create.  If you notice an improvement, let me know.  If you notice the problem continues, or any additional problems, let me know.

Since the 'cookie' change last night sort of resets your personal history, you might have noticed your Unread Posts were not accurate.

But hopefully, the next time you log in everything will be back to normal.  If you continue having problems with unread posts not appearing in your Unread Posts link, let me know.  The problem may be a deeper issue.

Keep me posted.



ps.  Have you already tried clearing your browsers' cache after I made the server/cookie change on Wednesday?  There may be a conflict between your local and global cookies.

... mmmm ... global cookies ...  (http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2357/2141808218_7bb9d4ed06.jpg)
