This is almost always a local browser problem.

The forum software does not keep track of which posts you have read (this would be very difficult to implement) but it does stamp each item with an incrementing number.

Your own browser uses these numbers and associated cookies to 'keep track' of which items have been read.

Possible causes could be...

a) Browser cache full (as suggested by HH)

b) Browser not accepting or refreshing cookies.

c) Interference by security software, which is not operating correctly.

d) More than one browser being operated on the same machine at different times. (This is my own favourite, and can cause all sorts of unpredictable behaviour. Stick to Firefox.)

e) None of the above.


Regards,

Many thanks for the info, I now suspect my machine, although curiously it seems to work on another phpbb forum - and yet on two others it dosnae.
