View Full Version : Timing out and relogin

11-11-2005, 11:29 AM
I have this problem that if I timeout from the forum and get "disconnected", all the topics that were marked unread (new messages) are no longer marked as unread after relogin. Just wandering if its just my problem (Opera browser). (Bad idea to check out forum while in WoW ;) (taking a flight etc.) )

This is not a browser related issue. :)

Somewhere (either a cookie, or server-sided variable) checks when youre last login was and marks all those topics that are unread as read when you leave the forum and comeback again.
As far as I know it is based on a session_cookie which is server-sided and timesout after a certain amount of inactivity or when the WHOLE browser is closed (read: when using tabs or multiple windows ALL windows/tabs must be closed before the *session* will be reseted or destroyed)
