...because you marked them read. Seriously...I don't know. What were you trying to do? Or...what did you think it was supposed to do?

I think it's suppose to change the little symbols at the very left of posts:

Forum Contains New Posts (2 memos tacked on bulletin board)
Forum Contains No New Posts (1 memo on bulletin board)
Forum is Closed for Posting (A lock)

Symbols are shown on bottom left of a forums category home page, i.e. Lifestyle & Recreation where it shows all the forums in that category. Whether or not it works, I do not know, because I've never used the feature.

That's it. It works. I went to Lifestyle & Recreation & clicked Mark Forums Read in Quick Links. Then, I refreshed & went back to Lifestyle & Recreation. All forum topics had the symbol of the little bulletin board with only one memo pinned to it.

Say good-night, Gracie.

Tow Guy, do your little bulletin boards change and show only one memo posted?

Yeeesss, but they're still "blue" and not "red".

Hmmm, must be my delivery...or maybe I need a drum roll. Bu-duh-bump.

My bulletin boards are blue. Have you been seeing red? Hmmm? Is there a doctor in the house?

Good night Gracie.

Mine are orange.

Maybe you've discovered you're color blind.

Thank you, Annette. I thought the tip-off was being in the Chats & Whines and not Computers.

Only problem is, now every time DIY and Twelvepole see one of my threads their first reaction is going to be, "Okay, what's he really mean here.....?"
