This bug - the one that doesn't correctly update or remember the number of unread posts indicator - is easily the most annoying of any of the bugs here, on rc.com, supertaco, or anywhere else for that matter!!!!

It needs to be a priority fix!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't think it's a bug, to enable reloading pages when you hit the "back" button requires dynamic web pages and setting the no-cache setting in the headers. Don't think UBB can do it.

I like the static back/forward navigation, when I click back, I want to see exactly where I came from, unchanged. If I want to update the count I'll click reload or go to the main index.

No, it's a real bug. I've never used the back button here since I figured it out on the old site; but ever since the software change, the unread-post counts have never been right.

And Marc's right - it's way annoying.

Like Julie, once I discovered a few years ago that the back button doesn't update the unread counter, I've exclusively used the navigation links. The new changes definitely broke that code.

OK, guess I'm just not seeing the problem.

Not that I've noticed. This is the 5th time your post is showing as being unread.

One thing you might want to try is resetting your cookie. You can do this on the "myHome" screen. There's now a "maintenance" section that appears beneath the "Display Preferences..." section. Let me know if this helps.

The new (major) revision of this software (UBBThreads) is currently in Beta 3 testing and should be ready by September. I believe that the new version will address this, and countless other issues with the software.
