I check the forum list to see if anything shows up red so I know something new was posted but when going to the 'Jobs' forum the entire forum was unread but it was not showing up as unread. Don't know if this is a known bug.

Whoa weird, AFTER visiting the forum the forum now shows up as unread. Seems I have to visit each forum for it to work for that forum. I'm guessing its just the way the check is done. Oh well. =oP

I noticed it, but I never go to that forum.

Can you tell me the steps to reproduce? I've never seen this issue.

RSnake, that's because you've been to all forums here. This forum software doesn't start showing new messages in a forum unless you visited this forum at least one. E.g. for "OMG Ponies" I see only the number of messages but not that there are new ones - I never went there. Create a new user account and you will see. I think this is a feature.

Ah, that does seem like a feature and not a bug then.

I would have expected it to automatically say all forums were unread when you first make an account and not have to visit them first for it to start monitoring.
