Auto-Refreshing "Unread Posts Since Last Visit"
« on: May 16, 2008, 09:46:21 PM »

For the record, I view this site almost exclusively via "Unread Posts Since Last Visit".

Previously, I loaded the Unread page, then picked and chose my threads from there.  If I wanted to update the Unread Posts results, I clicked the link at the top of the page or hit Refresh.  As of this evening, every time I "return" to what formerly would have been the original Unread Posts page, it auto-refreshes itself.

This is a PITA.  I'm working my way through the unread threads, starting from the oldest active one.  I'm skipping some.  Suddenly, the order has changed.  I lose my place.

And stroh is a *humid grotto*.

That has never worked for me.  I'm a 'homer'.

I view the forum the same way Clive does. To date, no trouble with it unless I navigate away from the site and then return.

I think we can all agree on stroh's relative humidity, however.

Hmmmm ... I just visited FGI, and it's doing the same thing there.  Maybe this laptop needs a burp.

(FWIW, I found that Firefox did NOT auto-refresh FGI, whereas IE7 did.  That was the main reason I adopted Firefox as my default browser.  When there are 3-13 pages of unread topics, I don't need the order changing.)

fwiw, there's no meta-refresh tags on that page.

Is the auto-refresh still happening?

Only on that laptop.  Not on the desktop, not on the work machine.
