    Smile New Post Timer

    Hi,
    I'm new and reading as much as I can. This is such a great & active forum.
    I use the new posts button almost dayley to see what people have written.

    The problem I'm having is after a certain amount of time the forum no longer highlights the new posts. If there is a way to lengthen the preset time I'd like to do it.

    Thanks all involved for a fantastic web site.
    Dan

    Hi Dan -

    The Database Read Marking Limit is a function controlled by the list owner that effects all users the same. I currently have this set to 10 days. Everyone has ten days to read a thread that is marked as unread, after which it will no longer be marked.

    This allows me to force unread markers to switch to "read" after a so many days. This would be the amount of time after which a user probably has no interest in reading that thread and therefore does not need to know that it contains unread posts.

    I can make it a bit longer. How much time are you needing for this to work for you? It's yet another load on the server that I try not to abuse.
    Regards, Barry

    Hi Barry,

    Thanks for the reply. What I'm talking about resets in less than 1 or 2 hours. I stop in almost every day. Before I have enough time to read through the 80+ posts it resets.
    Possibly its a different control.

    Thanks Again,
    Dan

    Hi Barry,

    Someone did something in the last 24 hours that appears to have fixed the problem. If it was you thanks.
