Forum Questions Timeout & Unread Messages

Why do I have to re login after being away from the forum for a while. Other forums I participate in keep you logged in until you reboot.

Is there any way to read "next unread message" in thread. If there is a new page I tend to miss the unread messages on the previous page. If I remember it requires me to navigate back to start reading.

Let me ask this way...
When you come back to catch up on new messages what method do you use?

For the record i am logged in to the site from this machine all the time (the only time i had to log in was when this or similar site got broken into and site managers had us set a new password about 6 or 9 months ago). When you are required to login ensure you click the "Remember my settings" or something similar. I assume it sets a cookie so if you delete cookies then likely you have to login again

my deafult landing page is the 2016+ Sorento forum with the threads listed. Unread items are in bold font so i can click on each and last page. the other option is the Recent Discussions section on the right of the tab. Pictures attached as that is easier than explaining - hope this helps

Everytime I try to a message after an extended period of not replying it makes me login again. I'm pretty sure I clicked remember before, I know it did just now. I'll see if that helps.

I know the threads with new messages are bolded but you have to navigate manually to them and if there are multiple they could be on more than one page so you have to go back a page to check.

As mentioned, you'll need to "remember me" (check the box), and it uses cookies. So if you're in private browsing (Firefox) or whatever the equivalent in IE/Chrome/Edge is, that'll screw things up as well.

If you have a tracking blocker or sometimes some AV software will delete cookies as well (AVG and BitDefender are notorious for this, I don't know about others).

I agreewith you on this. The site appears to be centred around threads rather than individual posts. hopefully one of the moderators can confirm that or correct me, if wrong

I would like to be able to immediately jump to the last unread post in a particular thread.

Thanks for the response but that isn't what I want. I want to have a jump to the last UNREAD post. There are many times when there are multiple new posts that span multiple pages. If you don't page back on every thread you can (and I do) mis some posts.

I don't believe the standard VB-forum software will only take you to the last post in the thread, and from there you'll need to scroll back.

Edit: I vaguely recall a button that could in fact take you to "the last unread post" , not "the last post" as it is now.

Quality and not quantity counts.
