Could that be because of your browser settings or something in your user profile? I've never had that problem and if it was my PM you are referring to, I didn't experience anything like that this time either despite the quotes.

Something about titles that I noticed while adding thread prefixes just now which probably has occurred during the site conversion:

Single quotation marks and double quotation marks have been escaped by backslash now. In case of double quotation marks, this makes input boxes chop off the rest of a thread title when you edit / reply to posts.

If possible, please remove the added backslashes again. If you add quotation marks in thread/topic titles now, then they're correctly being carried over, no such troubles.

Yep, we already know about this as well as some bbcode issues. Richard worked on part of it over the weekend but it's a long process because his cleanup scripts has to go through every post......brings the site to a crrrraaawwwwwlllll. It continues to be worked on though.

Polls should now be attached to the correct poll threads.

I still can't search through the internal forums / moderator forums, in case that this slipped under the radar.

When we first moved over here threads that I didn't read would be marked as read after a single visit. Now they stay marked as unread days later. Is this a bug or a default setting that was changed. If it is a setting where can I find it to change it back. All these threads marked as being unread are getting crazy.

Default Re: Official Forum Bug Thread

It's a setting change because of the autologout problem. Threads will stay greenlighted until you read them or use the "Mark This Forum Read" forum tool on a given forum. Note that using it on a forum with subforums will also mark the subforums read. It does not seem to work in the press releases forum because that has so many subforums. Some forums may show as having new posts even if you have read everything new in there and in its subforums (the moderator forum, for example, shows this behavior).

If you use the "Mark forums read" on the main index, it will mark everything as being read. Just learn to use and love those forum tools. Makes life so much easier.

Just a quick question.

The forum tools has a Mark this forum read" choice. Is that the entire forum?

What do I do if I want to mark an inane or annoying thread as "read"? The only purpose of this is to get rid of the bold lettering on a thread that indicates that it is unread. I often open threads just to get rid of the bold lettering, the sight of which bothers me. That may be a sign of some shortcomings on my part (a discussion topic that would probably require its own forum) but still a minor issue for me.

I don't believe that it is currently possible, but it would be a nice feature. Especially if you could mark it as read without actually adding to the "views" count for that thread.

An "Ignore this thread" would be nice as well, although as a moderator it would probably not be proper for me to use it in the dominions forums.
