Unread Content on Private Boards

Recommended Posts

Is anyone else having this issue?

 

I cam see unread content in the unread content area but posts on private boards (not publicly viewable, meaning within the BT or Band's internal member boards) does not display on that list.

 

For it I still have to check the forums list and look for a BOLD title meaning I have something unread with it or one of it's sub-boards.

 

If this is an issue for others as well, has anyone found a solution or work around other than manually checking.

I don't quite understand what you mean?

If you click on the  'show me unread items ' button it will only show you unread items on the free access main and sub boards. Any unread items on group members only sub boards is not displayed. 

 

It's like its not got access to search and display those boards even if the person searching has permission to view those boards.

 

For example I wouldn't get unread items listed in the Blue Boards. Only stuff from the main White Tower board, Tar Valon and the Warders board.

Aaah ok ... I gave up on the "unread content" button. I just go by the notifications button.

Yup but you can't follow something unless you find it first as it's not as easy to see what's new if the new button doesn't show all the new stuff lol

 

Absolutely! I eventually managed to set it to give me notifications of all the boards I follow, but it was far from easy and it notifies me of every post, not just once since I last read the thread.

But what if there was something interesting somewhere else. I miss the proper unread content button. I hope it can somehow be linked the the profile and the permissions of the person pressing it.

Yeah I agree with you very much. And once you've clicked on the notification button, it shows everything as read, so I haven't a clue what I HAVE read and what I haven't.
