Forum Bug?

MrWolf_UK

Within every forum section, is a tick at the top to mark all topics read, with the exception of the Site Announcements section, which lacks it.
Not sure if this is working as expected or just an odd quirk.

I tested it and the check mark, marks everything as read as expected. I don't know what's going on with your browser (read/unread is a browser based feature), but it's not supposed to work like you're describing. The announcements section is just like other sections in that regard.

He's not saying the check mark isn't working, he's saying it isn't appearing at all on the site announcements page. I checked this from my desktop, Win7 pro 64 bit using FireFox, and I am seeing the same thing. No check-mark button at the top of the site announcements forum page.

I just checked this on my system Linux with Fire Fox and it appears as stated. I checked the source code - near the top of the other pages is code like this:

document.write(tstamp.toLocaleString());

✔︎ New Topic

While the announcements page has this code in the same relative spot:

document.write(tstamp.toLocaleString());

it looks to me like that one line of code isn't there. The code is at the bottom of the page in both pages

edit - the code detail didn't show - it ran. In short the line of code for the tick mark and the javascript aren't at the top of the announcements page like on the other pages

✔︎ New Topic


Thanks for the bug report.

It turned out that I didn't do enough testing with a user account to catch this one.

The check mark showed up for admins only as it was included in the same block of code that displayed the 'New Topic' command. So I always saw that check mark and nobody else did.

It's fixed now. I separated the check mark from the 'new topic' command for the admin only section.

Thanks for the bug report.


You're welcome. I like to help when I can, and I like to make things as easy for you and the staff as I can, but I don't always hit the mark.

Glad you worked out what I meant in the end. Thanks EB for translating :)

I could always see a tick in the section "Site Announcements", but at bottom left instead the top left.
But I also have a "New Topic" button in the lower right, is that correct Lazeez?

That was a bug. Fixed.
