View Full Version : Threads dont get highlighted

04-28-2001, 12:14 PM
In old forums once I read a thread it was highlighted a different color. This way I knew I read it. In the new forums once a thread is read it does not get highlighted. How do I know I read the thread? Its confusing. Help

That's the first thing I noticed. I also like to see what I have already read. Hope they "fix" it.

me too. I can never remember what I've read already!!

I agree!

Here's another vote to keep the highlighting!

I must also add my vote. It made things much easier for this forgetful brain!

They don't get highlighted, but they do have a little beaded box around your post after you read it, so it shouldn't be a problem!

I see it now! Thanks Barbruka!

I just posted this same question on the Resorts Board. I too wish the highlighting would return. It is sooo helpful as previously mentioned . It is true that the beading shows when you click on a post but it doesn't remain there as the highlighting did, for those of us whose brains rely on backups;) PLEASE if anyone in the know reads this and has some input into these boards PLEASE return the highlighting :D

Hope they can fix it.

Another highlighting vote:p!

After you read a thread the envelope should be closed. When there are more new replies, it will have letters again. This should help a little.

When things settle down a bit, we will talk to the webmasters to see if we can get the changing thread colors back. :D

The changing envelope icon would be a decent replacement for the hi-lighting, but, unfortunately for me, it doesn't seem to change to clodsed after I've read the thread. Oh well.:rolleyes:

That's the first thing I noticed too. I can't remember which ones I've read either! Also I don't have to spend time looking through the on'e I already read. I hope they fix it too! :pinkbounc

...is that the threads I've read aren't highlighted. I'll start looking more closely at the envelopes, but I guess I'm a creature of habit!

Bring back the highlighting!:(

I am begging for the highlighting to return! I tried using the "open envelope" thing, but it doesn't seem to help me. When I sign onto a board I notice all the envelopes open with new letters sticking out of them. But I'm off and on these boards all day, for just a few minutes each time.

I have noticed if I sign onto a board and read just a few posts and then sign off, when I sign back on in half an hour or so, ALL the envelopes are closed (unless they've had new posts since I was on), even the ones I didn't read last time. It's like it marks them all "read" just because I was on the board, not whether or not I actually clicked on them.

I totally am open to the fact that I could be missing something here or doing something wrong, as I am computer illiterate, but I must admit the lack of highlighting is keeping me off these boards. It's just too frustrating.
