This post is to report a forum command link that seems not to be functioning correctly.

I always start my sessions on the forum by using the underlined heading (link?) "Show unread posts since last visit". Over the last two or three days, the result of clicking this is the message: "No unread topics found since your last visit. Click here to try all unread topics". My immediate thought is that this cannot possibly be true, particularly if more than twelve hours have passed (overnight Australia) since my last visit. And such proves to be the case when I got searching through the forum. The forum is telling me falsehoods. :D Or perhaps it is something to do with IE updates or other computer software functions.

It seems that only the first clicking of the function produces this result. After that, it seems to work okay.

Is anyone else who uses this function experiencing the same problem?

May you stay......forever young."

No problem here.  Try logging out and logging back in again.  Might be some sort of confusion with your session cookie.

It happens to me - quite often - not a new error.

I always chalked it up to the fact I'm always logged in, invisible, and/or accessing TTF from my home Mac, office Mac, iPhone and iPad...

It's just a bug I've settled with...

I get this problem all the time. Sometimes there's only two on the list, sometimes the list is fully working, sometimes there's none.

If I haven't visited the site for a few days or more, it has registered zero results consistently. I haven't really paid it much mind either, though. Doesn't hurt to go searching in the posts of olde every once in a while instead   :)

It happens randomly to me every now and then.  When it happens, I just use the "show all unread topics" link.  Since this forum does not have a huge volume of daily traffic, it's pretty easy to spot when I've gotten to the old threads I've already seen.
