Channels Read

It seems like all the topics that were marked as read are changing to unread. Clicking the "Mark Channels Read" isn't doing anything.

Anyone else have the same issue? I'm trying to figure out if it is just me or the forum software. I knew I should have went with Zenforo. haha

Ok, I clicked the "Mark Channels Read" right after posting this and it worked. I wonder if making a post made it work. I've been trying to mark everything read for a couple of days without success.

Yes, everything is showing as unread. It does this now and then. I guess it resets or refreshes or something. It usually happens when it's time to login again - I rarely log out manually, but the forum logs me out automatically after certain number of days - then it's a little difficult to login, but after logging in, the forum shows sections as unread not too long afterward.

I changed a setting in the admin. Apparently it was set to cookie which would explain the forum going back to unread when the cookie expires.

It doesn't explain why the Mark Channels Read wasn't working until I posted something.

Mel, I will take a look to see if I can stop the forum from logging you out. Maybe a setting somewhere.

Robbie, you have to log in with https instead of http. I haven't had an issue with https. Let me know if you are using https and what the problem is. I do know I was getting a php error for the verification. Not sure why but I made some settings changes to hopefully fix it.

Thanks Mel, Robbie and Mike.

Robbie, you have to log in with https instead of http, Thomas

Yup, i knew that..it always logs in as secure-> https://prnt.sc/s1k9mp unless you added that in.htacess or forum script did?
I'll log out now and go check login box drop-down from the main url to forum: https://profittigersystems.com/vbforum/
It only happens there..its completely not an issue..not important. But thought I'd mention it.
If it's still happening ill do a quick video :)
chowzie;)

EDIT:
It's no longer doing that..so that's good :D

Logging out and logging back in at the main link is also working for me. Had to click "Mark all as read" to clear the "unread" icons, but no biggie. :)
