I have noticed the last couple of days that when I view new posts as usual and click on an individual post it doesn't disapppear like it used to. Has something changed on the board and is there a setting I can set to get that back?

It could be a database error. I've done a rebuild on the database. If that does not correct your problem, it may be a cookie/cache issue.

Nope, I cleared all cache, history, cookies and temp internet files but it's still doing it :(

It happened to me for about a year. Then poof, back to normal and threads disappeared as they were read.
I don't know how or why. My PC is still fine but my iPad won't clear threads as they are read.

When viewing new posts mine has always left them showing after being read. I thought that feature was to show any posts made since your last log in. If you click on "View unread posts" then it shows all posts you have not read. Those will disappear after reading them. It looks like some of you are talking about two different things.

Bill you and I are talking about the same thing . In view unread posts on my iPad I have to refresh the page after reading a few threads or I tend to lose my place. It's very handy when it works.

Are you fellas referring to the whole post itself staying up on the screen where you can read the whole thing or do you mean just the topic still shows still shows? I think I may be confused now. :lol:

Bill,

I think my issue is the same as the others are trying to describe. The box to the left of the subject that allows you to “View First Unread Post” stays there, after you read it, until you “refresh” the page. The box use to go away once you read the post (as there is no longer an unread post).

Thanks,

I have the exact same issue. I've just gotten in the habit of hitting the "<Return to Farmall Cub" link at the bottom of each thread so that it shows up as being read.
