Threads not being marked as read

Thu Sep 28, 2017 7:38 pm

Lately, I've come across issues where some threads still show as having some unread posts when I return to the main forum page. However, when I click back on the thread, the newest post is one that I've already seen. After that, returning to the main forum page will show it as having been read.

It seems sporadic, so I can't really identify any possible causes behind it. It happens across multiple devices/OSes, so it's not a browser-specific / cookie issue.
The plural of Airbus is Airbuses. Airbii is not a word.
There is no 787-800, nor 787-900 or 747-800. It's 787-8, 787-9, and 747-8.
A321neoLR is also unnecessary. It's simply A321LR.
Airplanes don't have isles, they have aisles.

I've seen this a few times today and thought I was going mad. :crazy:

The page is probably displayed from the browser cache... does the "read" status update when you refresh the page?
