Missing "Unread" Marker


#1

This is happening on my phone (Android with Firefox): when looking at the “Latest,” I used to see a dot (I think it was blue?) that denoted a thread as being unread (as in, I’d never opened the thread, not that it had been previously read and had new posts) by me. Sometime in the last 24-48 hours that’s disappeared.

Hmm. Anyone else ran into this issue? I still see the dots on iOS.


#3

Yep. The blue dots are gone from IE and Firefox desktop versions.

Dots have been gone for at least a week from Chrome. Also missing is the “New” label.

  1. Go to https://meta.discourse.org/ and see if you have the same issue there. Why? the forum software is upgraded a week ago, so if they have the same issue, it could be a bug.

  2. If there is no issue there, go to https://www.hungryonion.org/safe-mode. Disable one of the 3 options and see if it fixes the issue. If so, please share which option is the culprit.

Can you attach a screenshot what you are seeing also?

I had to create a new account for this site, so I’m not sure what I’m supposed to see.

I receive an “Oops! That page doesn’t exist or is private” message.


#8

See if the issue you see here is also over there. they use the same software and version.

Right, but since I’m a new user, I won’t see any “new” or “unread” tags for a while.

So I do see the “new” notification on the Discourse site, but not on the HO site. I’ve clicked a few threads on Discourse and will check back periodically to see if the “Unread” notification is working there.


(Kim) #11

As you can see, the header indicates one unread topic for me, but there’s no blue dot indicating which thread is unread.


#12

If it helps, I’m not having the same issue on FTC - and not on meta.discourse either.


#13

Its one of the plugin. I will find out which one it is and disable it tonight.


#14

Thank you, @sck - the “dot” is back for me. I was mistaken, though, in my OP: it’s red, not blue.


(Kim) #15

Thanks, both the “new” identifier and the blue dot for unread threads have returned.


#16

Now on mobile (Android/Firefox) on hungryonion.org/latest I see a red dot followed by the word “new” (also in red) denoting threads I’ve never opened.

For threads I’ve opened and contributed to that have new-for-me replies, there is a blue circle around the number of new replies on the right side of the screen (normal) plus the same blue circle/number appears at the end of the title of the thread.

I can’t upload images from my phone - does HO have an email address I can send a screenshot to?
