I never log out, and often do not exit IE8, and only reboot only once every few days (PC goes into very low power sleep mode in between).
Every time I sit back down at the PC I click on "View new posts" and all old ones are NOT marked, so I Ctrl-Click on each and every new one (opens in a new tab).
What browser are you using ? Do you have cookies enabled ? Any software blocking cookies or trackers ?
Works fine for me.
I've never had a need to use the "View new posts" anywhere. This is the first board I've had to use it on.
"Normally" (whatever that may be), I visit a board, I see the orange icon indicating there is a new post in that thread, I click (usually center click to open in a new tab) the little orange icon with the arrow next to the title, which takes me to the first new post in that thread and I read the unread messages. I do this for the threads I want to read. I never read ALL the threads so when I'm "done" there are still orange icons.
When you close the browser, your "session" ends (or it could be timed, its all cookies based). At that point, if I reopen the browser and visit the site again, all the posts that were unread are now read, and only the threads that were posted to after my last visit are marked unread.
I use the "keep me logged in" option on all the boards i visit. It doesn't seem to make a difference.
