There is no unread button. But current 1.4.1 version comes with read/unread indication by bold forum/topic titles.

That's a good start. Thank you.

Read/Unread doesn't carry across platforms. So when I'm on my phone or tablet, it shows differently to on my PC. Topics are unread that I have read on my PC. I'm guessing this is because read/unread is somehow stored in a browser cookie or something, rather than against the account. In fact I'm certain because even after logging out on my tablet it maintains the status of what was read/unread while I was logged in.

It is frustrating that it doesn't follow you across devices because these days most of us have more than one device. I have 3 in arms reach right now.

Yes, because it's browser cookie based feature. So it's based on your browser/device. There is no db storing version yet. It'll increase SQL number and memory usage. We'll add it once we got the most light way for this.

Hi,

I assume this is still the case. Are you planning on doing this soon? It drives me crazy to be honest ^_^

Work computer, home computer, mobile phone - none of them are sync together...

Thanks

Sure, I see you @bloodrash,

As a temporary solution I can suggest disable this in Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Features Tab, by setting NO the "Log Viewed Forums and Topics" option. We'll improve this feature as soon as possible.
