Mark forums read not working in LM Forum

Post by Terryphi » Wed Dec 06, 2017 10:43 am

Since upgrading to LM 18.3 I find that "mark forums read" no longer works in LM Forum. Has anyone else seen this? The only way I am able to clear read posts is to log out of the forum and then login again.

Still works for me (I'm 18.3 Cinnamon) - Mate or browser (I'm Firefox 57) thing maybe?

Yes, I'm having a similar issue (some take a while to register, and I think I noticed some weren't refreshing until the next visit), plus my artworks gif, which was working fine, has just keeled over and decided to stop soon after playing, despite lots of cleaning opera and rebooting it and the system. :?

Thanks for confirmation ArtGirl. Are you using the MATE desktop like me? I cleaned cookies on Firefox and tried other browsers to no avail.

No problem, Terryphi. :) I'm using Cinnamon, 18.3. I'm still investigating if it's an Opera thing about the gif, with all the posts about flash not running etc. Generally, it could be that the new Firefox is having some growing pains, or this forum is doing some background maintenance? Not sure.

Thank you very much for the feedback; I'm seeing 3 images then it goes blank. It was working fine, so maybe Opera have been doing some of their tweaks. :roll:

Opera has inbuilt adblocker, so is it the guilty?

Now my posts in this thread are not showing - or is there a delay in appearing?
Edit: Oh, this one has appeared but an earlier post has been lost!

Thank you for suggesting that. I'm bemused, as I'd changed no settings. I've done some extra white-listing now, just incase something's been Opera-tweaked, plus I run Turbo, not the ad-blocking mode, but ad-blocking extensions are showing 0 blockings on this page. Stumped, lol :) plus I can see someone else's animated gif working.

Eek. Maybe there is some background maintenance?, as both issues are to do with the forum page text or images and on 2 different browsers. Or it could be different issues with both browsers ... I keep being signed out of Opera, sign back in, and find it's again not removed an auto-password I'd deleted, as well as the gif issue. With Firefox being newly released, they may be doing quite frequent tweakings?
