Cruise: "Update" function.

Hellkeepa (September 7th, 2002, 12:36 pm)


I just wanted to hear if you've forgotten it, or decided to not do anyting about it, but the "Update" function is still needed in the "Settings" page.

You once talked about removing this, and make the site automaticly update, before the site was opened.

So, what's the status?

Happy fraggin'!

Cruise: "Update" function.

Well, maybe I'm in a minority, but I don't want the Update function to be automatic. Because if I visited the site and decided to reply to most posts later (having no time at the present), I'd lose all 'new' markers when I came back. I guess, like most other features, a choice between automatic and manual would be good. Unless you're not doing automatic at all, which is fine with me ;)


Hellkeepa (September 8th, 2002, 1:30 pm)


Yeah, that i didn't think about...

A choice is good, would it be possible for you to do it, Cruise?

Well, if you come in on the URL, it should do it automatically (except for anything posted since the last time you came in on that link)...

OK, good. :-)

Hellkeepa (September 9th, 2002, 10:13 pm)


That's good. :-)

But let me check to see if I've gotten this all the right way... ;-)

If I enter via the "" URL I won't get automaticly updated, but if I do it with "www" I get updated. That's right?

Happy fraggin'!

If you come in on the front page you'll be updated...

As long as you end up loading the index.php, your last visit time will be accurate. If you've bookmarked the boards, for example, and just go straight to those, then obviously it won't work as expected :P

In that case...

Hellkeepa (September 10th, 2002, 9:35 pm)


Well, then I have to disappoint you: It doesn't to that here. :-/ At least not all the time, as I've seen the "new post" indicator on threads which were below one with my name on it as the last poster.

However, when I manually update it via the settings page it's OK the next time I join.

I'm using Opera 6.05 on Win98se, all cookies are automaticly accepted except 3rd party which are being prompted. Javascript is on, as well as GIF animations, but the rest of the multimedia is off (pop-ups are killed as well).

Any idea..?

PS: Just noticed that the "ANKOS" thread was marked with "new posts", but I've already read the two posts in it, quite a while ago too...

Happy fraggin'!

Now it seems as if it's a bit too eager to update, as I've just realised therre has been new posts submitted today. This was not displayed in the main "Discussion" page, but all individual threads was marked with the "new post" highlight. I just updated manually, and it said yesterday was last day I visitied (or rather updated), so I'm sure they were marked unread.

Care to enlighten me/us on what you are doing..?

Happy fraggin'!

I'd been meaning to mention that. My manual update is buggy... Some times I update and when I come back I have new forum posts, even though _I_ was the last one to post. Other times it works.
