In the past couple of days there has been a change to the screen refresh behavior of the forums. Until this change one could click on an unread topic and then return back to the the forum with browser-back to see the topic already marked as read. But now, after reading and going back, one must also perform a page refresh (F5) to remove the unread marker from the topic. Was this change, which I dislike, deliberate or accidental?

    Hi tgold,

    To my knowledge that's always been like that. Have you cleared your cookies recently?

    Anyhow, I'll ask InSided to look into this.

    Cheers, Mikko

    Hi tgold,

    I got a confirmation that this behaviour indeed hasn't changed. When going back through the browser navigation buttons the page is not refreshed but you'll go back to the same state you left from. Perhaps were going back using the forum links before? It that case you'd reload the page and get updated post counts.

    Cheers, Mikko

    Thanks for confirming my failing memory.
