View new posts - control since when?

Thu Feb 21, 2013 1:32 pm

I regularly read this forum using the "view new posts" options. However, this morning, I identically entered the index page when I didn't have time to read posts. I quickly went to the website I was intending to visit but, as I had feared, the visit still registered and when I visited again later, "view new posts" only showed me posts since this morning.

Other than not staying logged in, is there any way to avoid this problem? I'd be nice to have a button to say "ignore this visit" or such, at least in terms of controlling what is a new post.

Thanks

I use the "View active topics" link and the use the icon to the left of the thread title "view first unread post". Those links keep track of the posts you've actually read and isn't thrown off by reading things out of order, or leaving and returning.
