"Mark forum read" confirmation

Recommended Posts

Since the update, every time I click "Mark forum read," I am required to confirm it. Is there a way to turn off that #@&% feature?

I would think you should know which forum you read . 

Well yeah, even with my Old Timer's Disease, I know which forums I have read, but it is nice, when I come back that forum, to instantly see which topics have new posts. Am I overlooking the obvious?

Maybe you could use the 'unread content' page . 

Top left of this page under Activity , click Unread Content . After the page change , bookmark or add the page to your favorites .

That page address should look like :

http://www.rvnetwork.com/discover/unread/

Then every time you click that address , everything you haven't read will be listed , latest first .

I like having to acknowledge that I want to mark everything read, because sometimes resting finger on iPad causes action that I don't want to happen.  Also set up customized stream for what you want to read

Helpful people have suggested work-arounds, but no one has answered my question: "Is there a way to turn off that #@&% feature?" When I looked, I did not find a way to turn it off, but I am surprised such a thing is the default and unavoidable.

What I do is click the bubble next to the forum on the main forum page. It will mark it as read with no confirmation, well, at least it does for me.........

That does work. Thanks! Too easy! I first tried it on an iPad and it did not work; it required confirmation. When I tried it on a Windows laptop, just now, it worked like a charm.

Where is this 'bubble'?

The bubble is right next to the forum name on the main page.

Only thing I see there is the copyright symbol.

When you are looking at the main page you will see the names of the forums, i.e. "About The Discussion Forums", "Bugs And Feature Requests", "Test Posts", etc. To the left of the names there is a circle with what looks like two 'thought bubbles' in it. That is the 'bubble' I mean.

I thought I would resurrect this and see if it is just me. Sometime over the weekend it seems that  a change made now requires that you click on a confirm dialog even when clicking the bubble. Is this just me or are others seeing this as well? And if others are seeing this, can someone please answer why this very handy feature was made not so handy anymore?
