Unread Posts

On most UBB forums like SigTalk any unread post or thread keeps their bold title until I read them---not so here. If I click on a forum and read just one thread then go to another forum if I return to the first forum they are no longer in bold suggesting I've read those threads.

Do I have my preferences set incorrectly? If so which one changes this behavior?


TIA

I just click 'new posts' only.
What's new is in bold on top and what's not starts to filter down.

As 7.62 suggested, click on "New Posts", it will refresh the page and show in bold, threads that have 'new posts' since you were there last. Once you click on that thread, then click new posts again that thread will no longer be in bold because you went to it and moved on. It will bold again when someone posts in it.

The way it works makes it much easier if you have a thread of particular interest, that you have been following/participating in, to follow. This way you aren't continually clicking on that thread to see if anyone else posted in it.
