A question to the "crowd". We need feedback! (General)

Hello Alex

just noticed: the refresh / reset new and read postings button does not reset the postings.

Yes, that's intended. Milo, glorifyday and me had a longish dispute about the intentions of your function and the partially opposing assumptions of "the" users. The fact, that the class for read entries was removed, when one used the refresh-link, was counter intuitive (not only IMHO). Thatswhy and because of the ineffective storing structure ((natively) 200 ids of read entries in a comma separated list in the userdata table) the function got a rework.

Long story short:

- the fact, that an entry is red by a registered user, is stored in a new table (entry-id, user-id, date of the last access)
- the status is stored until ...
- an amount of entries is stored, remove oldest entries (old behaviour)
- a period of time passed
- when a forum admin activated the close-threads-automatically, the status-entries will be removed to
- the refresh-link only refreshes the main views, it does not remove the new-status or remove the read-status

The new-status remains until an entry was in fact read. But until now (2.4.2) this function is buggy, because entries that was removed from the status-table get marked as "new" again. Additionally we have the porblem, that the setting for the amount of read-marked entries was taken from the old function and is with the value of 200 much to low. On your forum not even all entries on the first main page are marked as read. With the version 2.4.3 (at the moment in the starting block) I hope, I got it solved.

Not registered visitors got entries with new-status, when they send the cookie for the last visit. They got no read-status, but instead the pseudo-class :visited for the links in their actual browser.

Tschö, Auge
