Hi All,
When I visit the forum I normally click "Show new posts since last visit"and for some time now I have found that once i have viewed a topic and hit the  "back" button to view the next "new post since last visit" i discover that the list that may have been 10 or 12 has reduced to about 2 or 3.
This seems to be why I miss  / do not reply to posts. Does anyone else notice this.
If it is of any note I use IE at work and Firefox at home and get similar results.

Yeap, we're (painfully) aware of it Ian and I suffer from the same thing in that the cookie session doesn't seem to be working properly since we upgraded to the latest version of the software.... we've been looking into it for some time now but no obvious answer can be found as the forum software seems ok so it may be a cookie setting issue down at the user end which is a little more difficult to resolve.

One work around though is to use the "Show all unread posts" link which is under the Show Posts Since Last Visit.... this will give you a list of all the posts you haven't ever read.  Obviously the first time you do it you will have hundreds but if you click the "Mark all message as read" which is top right under the PSP banner it will clear the list out and you will start from fresh.

It will be interesting to know if others are having the same problem so if anyone else have noticed the same problem let us know so we can gauge the magnitude of the problem.

Different topic but to do with Forum problems.  I often find it difficult to go back and find a previous thread - would it be possible to have a button that shows "my posts".

Alternatively, on the left hand side of the home screen is an option for 'Show Own Posts'.

I find that the topic viewed disappears from the list when I go 'back' - thought it was a feature ?  Seeing as the topic is now "viewed" and not "new" ?
