How does this feature work exactly? I changed it on my profile, but I'm still getting all the posts not the new ones only. I figured this could be handy with some of the longer threads that are popping up lately, but I can't get it to work.

This feature works in conjunction with he "Mark Forum Read" feature, and with logging in.

After you have read all of the threads in a forum, click on the mark forum read option. This will set a timestamp for that forum for your profile. The next time you come to that forum, only posts newer than that timestamp will appear as new.

Hope that helps.

On a related note, a question for you, Guru:

Right now, when you mark all forums read the resultant URL contains ?action=markallforumsread, even though you've been redirected to index.php. Would it be possible to have the URL shortened (i.e. have the ?action=etc) trimmed off so that an inadvertant reload performed hours later doesn't re-mark everything read and totally screw me up?

(I suppose I could just be smarter about checking the URL before I hit reload, but it keeps happening no matter how vigilant I try to be...)

Edit: on a totally unrelated note, what the heck is the bar underneath the level for (on the left hand side above the avatar)? I thought at first it was a relative measure of how close to the next rank one is. But I'm a long ways away from the next rank and yet my bar is almost full? Is it recent activity maybe?

Edit2: strike that. Level and rank are independant of eachother... *smacks forehead*

Yeah I had that problem too... but it was worse. On my new laptop I bookmarked the "mark forum read" response back from the wrestling forum. That sucked.

I'll see what I can do when I have time.

That's one of my pet peeve with amateur CGI and PHP programmers, actually, and I always meant to fix that little blunder of ACMLM's... Basically, form actions targets should always be pure logic, with a redirect bouncing people out when done, so that one isn't stuck in form reload hell. That goes for things that aren't stricly forms as well (like the mark read thing)... I can do a quick fix for it for now, and we can fix it properly some other time.

// edit: There... All fixed up... Just took some rearranging of code, and two extra lines. Should have done it months ago, I suppose.

Yeah, but I felt like being useful today. Hush.
