In looking at the logs I think you might have a cookie conflict. I know you said you deleted all the eham cookies - but could you try that again?
Ok, I tried that again. Still the same problem.
What is the URL of the login page you get directed to?https://www.eham.net/user/login
. (Actually, the browser history shows that I was first redirected to http://www.eham.net/user/login
and then immediately to https://www.eham.net/user/login
What is the URL that you use to login to the site?
This time, it was www.eham.net
It's interesting that you asked this question, though, as the bug seemed to be related to where I logged in. I believe I logged in once on http://www.eham.net/ehamforum/smf/index.php?action=unread
and IIRC, that may have triggered the problem I'm having.
I do know that this feature only works on one computer. SMF seems to store some unread posts in its user database, since I have always been able to move from this laptop in my living room to the computer in my shack. And as long as I access each forum from http://www.eham.net/ehamforum/smf/
, I can browse the unread posts on either computer. That has worked nicely for years.
But the link that causes the "bug" seems to be able to be only used on one computer at a time. So, I have been only using it on this Windows laptop.
I appreciate your looking into this, George! That unread posts link is a wonderful feature that I only discovered in the last month or two. Let me know how else I can help.
UPDATE: I just manually marked all forums read from within each forum. Logged out, deleted all eham cookies, logged in at www.eham.net
... same problem.
UPDATE AGAIN: No bug using Internet Explorer. (But I HATE that browser!) I guess I could try this on another computer with Firefox. But I'm going to bed.
