Thread: Use database instead of timers for the message read feature

  1. #1

    Default Use database instead of timers for the message read feature

    vbulletin has two ways how to flag unread messages. One is cookie based.. as soon as your cookie times out, anything new will be flagged as new the next time you visit, and when the cookie timeout runs out, everything is marked read again.

    The alternative is using the forum's database... that way.. messages only appear as read if you have either read them, or clicked the link to mark everything (or every post in a subforum) as read.

    Would it be possible to switch from the former to the latter? After making my initial post today, I did some testing and when I got back, I was still logged in, but all messages since my last visit (about a month ago) were marked as read making it difficult to see if there's been some activity that could be interesting to me.

    Hello,

    Thanks for your feedback. Indeed switching to database method for post marking is more independent rather than cookies. However, it is more resource consuming. We will check the load impact to server and switch to database method if possible.
