The word "New"

(1/2) > >>

How come I keep on seeing the word "new" on topic replies?

"New" just means that the system thinks that you haven't read them yet. If read the replies while logged out and then log in to say comment on them then even though you already read them you haven't read them while logged in.

J N Winkler:
No, this problem (failure to set "read" flag when posts are read) also occurs when you are logged in.  I think what is going on is that the database gets read flags updated only at intervals instead of in real time.

I've also had the forum not set the "New" tags when there's an unread reply...

How are the "read" flags set?
