show new posts, 1.1.6. upgrade related
« on: September 16, 2008, 12:26:19 AM »
 Hi, just a quick question. Last night, I upgraded from 1.1.5 to 1.1.6 and have two members mentioning that the "show new posts since last visit" link does not seem to be working.
 I know sometimes this is often related to an issue with a 3rd party theme but, they say the same is happening using the smf default theme now?
 I have not chanced to see this for myself yet, and did a search but may not have typed the search terms correctly?

 Just wondering if there have been any similar issues yet? If so, could I get the links to the posts so I can referrence them once we know if this  more than just a fluke ;)

 Thank you

An installed mod, affects your default theme too.
I got no problems at all with the 1.1.6 upgrade (and I can't remember something similar around), so I suggest you to enable (if you haven't done it yet) the error logging and see what kind of issue is related to "show new posts".

 ok, now 4 members mentioning same issue... even using the default smf theme (but that is 1.1.5 core) is there a new default smf 1.1.6 core theme? could this be the issue?
 and, one of those members mentioned that the "mark all as read" button does'nt seem to work, (yes, I have the option enabled)

 should I try reset all options? from the admin panel?

Does the Show All Unread feature work? The unread posts since last visit may not work if they are set to be logged in forever. If they go to show all unread, it should display those missing posts now.

Did you both also try asking the users to clear all their temp and cookie files to see if it helps?

I am having this same problem with the "Show unread posts since last visit".  I have no mods installed.  The forum is fairly new.  I had a problem just yesterday with the server not loading right so I dumped the cookies and temp files yesterday afternoon.  The "Click here to try all unread topics" works to bring up the missing unread threads.  I haven't had any problems with the "Mark all topics as read" though (at least not that I am aware of).

BHill, logout of your forum and then check back again later when there or new posts. Log back in and then click on the Show unread posts since last visit to see if it works.

Yes, it does seem to work after logging out and back in again.  Which brings up 2 questions:
1.  How do I fix that  OR
2.  How do I disable the "log in Forever" and make everyone log in when they come to the site?

1. Nothing to fix. It's by design and is doing exactly what it says.
2. You can put it to 1 hour by default if you want. Open up /Themes/default/index.template.php:

Code: (Search for) [Select]
<select name="cookielength">
<option value="60">', $txt['smf53'], '</option>
<option value="1440">', $txt['smf47'], '</option>
<option value="10080">', $txt['smf48'], '</option>
<option value="43200">', $txt['smf49'], '</option>
<option value="-1" selected="selected">', $txt['smf50'], '</option>
</select>

Code: (Replace with) [Select]
<select name="cookielength">
<option value="60" selected="selected">', $txt['smf53'], '</option>
<option value="1440">', $txt['smf47'], '</option>
<option value="10080">', $txt['smf48'], '</option>
<option value="43200">', $txt['smf49'], '</option>
<option value="-1">', $txt['smf50'], '</option>
</select>

 Thank you greyknight... I think this is a logical answer and I'll get them to give it a whirl. ;)

 Oops, also forgot to answer the question about any mods I'm using / have installed.
 The only two are the
SMF 1.0.13 / 1.1.5 / 2.0 b3 1 Update 1.0  and
SMF 1.0.14 / 1.1.6 Update 1.0

 one I see which I have not applied is the
 Are you Human? Anti-Bot registration check ver 1.3( This is prob one I should apply, correct?)

 greyknight... just one quick question though....
 As far as using the "login forever" option is concerned... if we log back in under this option, will we continue to have this issue? I only ask as I'm sure I'm not the "only" lazy person on the forum with a short memory span :P
 I know this is a feature many like to use. But, we are open to the suggestions of the support team here ;)

 So, basically, just looking for the pros & cons of choosing login forever option

 Thanks

The show all unread posts feature does not work, and there are plenty of posts showing new when i go through each forum and search, but i also do have a feeling that most users would be using the login forever option, any ideas?

And no we havent asked the users to clear cookies and temp files yet.

Whether someone chooses to stay logged in forever or not, they are not at the forum continuously.  Since the forum tracks when someone was last active, it shouldn't be hard to base this feature on a time difference between when they were last on the forum and the current time, instead of when they last logged in.
 
I have this same problem on my board and the large majority of users choose to stay logged in forever.

I don't think this happens on all SMF 1.1.x installs, it seems to work properly on several SMF 1.1.6 websites for me. Actually one of them had this issue at one stage - it was fixed by a server move, so it may be an issues with your server configuration.

Anyway, I have bumped this, so hopefully some of the other SSers will have some more ideas. :)
