    Default New/ amended posts not being highlighted inside the various forums

    Like it says. The header off the main menu still seems to be highlighting properly, but when the header is opened, none of the recent posts show up in bold type.

    If a post was modified AFTER I have had this site opened, the new posts/revisions do seem to show up in bold, but any other recent posts (such as overnight) do not.

    What device/browser are you using? This may have something to do with the way your cookies are set up. Do you have it set to clear after each web browsing session?

    Let us know and we'll go from there - thanks for your patience on this.

    Cheers,

    Using Chrome on an HP desktop computer. FWIW, my service provider is AT&T.

    Things actually worked right ONCE on the 16th, but since then I have to go back and remember the last time I logged on.

    It is not a BIG inconvenience, but it is one.

    Hey,

    Do you have your browser set to remember cookies? If your browser is set to not remember cookies then it will have a hard time remembering what you last viewed.

    Not an IT professional by any means on this end. Where would I even look to find out if this is happening?

    FWIW, things did work again ONCE yesterday again, but after my wife logged on, everything went back to the way it was.

    It started up 'dumb' again today.

    EDIT: I have been thinking about this, and I am not sure the cookie thing would be where the problem is. There is evidently enough information available to turn the balloons blue on the main menu (and those balloons seem to be working just fine), but when I drill down into a menu choice that DOES have one of the blue balloons, the 'new' posts are NOT in bold, unless the post updated after I have logged on to the site. THOSE posts come up bold.

    Oh, and for what else it is worth, I am running Windows 10.

    Try this to check to see if your cookies are enabled so we can rule that out:


    1. On your computer, open Chrome.
    2. At the top right, click More Settings.
    3. At the bottom, click Show advanced settings.
    4. In the "Privacy" section, click Content settings.
    5. Under "Cookies," Allow local data to be set.
