This has been happening since I came to frihost. So I am not sure if this is a PhpBB issue.
I visit frihost as usual. I find that the forums containing unread posts have orange icons. Now my internet connection gets disconnected. It comes back on after a minute or so. When I refresh the page, I find that all pages are marked read or have the grey [no new posts] icon.
Why does this occur? Any solutions or workarounds to this? Can this be rectified and made as in vBulletin or IPB etc. where all topics are unread as long as you actually go in and read them?
I have the same problem, but I have it with most (all?) phpBB forums. With me it isn't related to logging in or out or a particular time of the day. It happens in both Seamonkey and IE.
Yeah, I asked Bondings about this before too - I find it happens to me occasionally, and it is pretty irritating. As far as I know, the session is lost and you create a new one when you next visit the site - in this case, all posts are marked as read until new posts are made after the new session was created.
Generally, you'll find that if you clear your cache and cookies, any authenticated sessions will be lost too. I don't understand why they mess up if you lose your connection or navigate away from the site in some instances though...
But this does not happen in vBulletin. I would have thought that phpbb must have come with a solution to this if it was a phpbb wide problem..
I have the same problem. Though I don't know if it's with all phpBB forums, but it does happen on Frihost. Anyway, I think it might be a cacheing/cookie issue. But that's just me. I'm not a computer wiz, but that's what I think may cause it.
opps well i've had that problem also... Sorry i just misunderstood you.
yea well the topic title made it sound like you have both problems... but the weird thing is it only happens at frihost. Never at any other forums i vist. And yes there phpbb2 too.
As far as I can tell, this is a cookies issue. When your internet connection gets disconnected, do you restart your browser?
It seems to work now that i've restarted my computer....
