Auto-refresh

Postby gillian » Thu Mar 10, 2005 3:15 pm

Well, I got sick of having to refresh the forum all the time to check for new posts, so I installed a mod that auto-refreshes the index and vew forum pages every 60 seconds. Just wanted to let you know so you don't freak out if you notice it.

Yay, now I can be even lazier. (Hard to imagine)

Good move on auto-refresh, Gil.
Except that I've put on about 5 lbs. since....but it's still good.

If I leave it on for too long, it will mark threads that I haven't viewed yet as read. :?

It's been that way for me since day one.
Plus, if I respond to a post, all the checkmarks indicating unread posts disappear.

Hmm.. yeah, the unread marking feature is definitely quirky. I've noticed problems in the past, even before I added auto-refresh. Also for some reason, if I go to the Admin Control Panel it marks everything as read... highly annoying. Matt, I guess you'll just have to close the window when you're *actually* attending class. ;)
