[02:18] <ZzZombo_> I have a weird problem with the forum, "Thread Subscriptions With New Posts" on http://zandronum.com/forum/usercp.php keeps getting more and more threads, but without a "goto to new posts" link nor bold as with normal threads.
[02:19] <ZzZombo_> Furthermore, such threads may actually have a new post, but most don't.
[02:20] <infurnus> it doesn't list anything under Last Post?
[02:20] <ZzZombo_> Last Post works normally.
[02:21] <infurnus> you can prune out threads you don't want to follow any more here: http://zandronum.com/forum/usercp.php?a ... scriptions
[02:21] <ZzZombo_> No, that's not whatI need.
[02:21] <infurnus> what exactly are you asking for?
[02:22] <ZzZombo_> Eh
[02:22] <infurnus> it only shows the threads you've subscribed to there, and their latest posts
[02:23] <ZzZombo_> No, it shows subscribed threads WITH latest posts.
[02:23] <infurnus> if there's no recent activity, that just means people aren't posting to threads you are subscribed to
[02:23] <ZzZombo_> If I visit all of them I won't get any.
[02:23] <ZzZombo_> not latest
[02:23] <ZzZombo_> but new
[02:24] <infurnus> you have to click on Last Post
[02:24] <infurnus> it's the way the feature was built into MyBB
[02:25] <infurnus> is it working
[02:27] <ZzZombo_> Look there: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/943 ... rumBug.png
[02:28] <ZzZombo_> See? Normal threads have the link to new posts and are bolded.
[02:28] <ZzZombo_> Bugged don't.
[02:28] <infurnus> it's not bugged, that's how it works in MyBB
[02:28] <ZzZombo_> No
[02:28] <ZzZombo_> Look
[02:29] <ZzZombo_> There is even one thread with me as the last psoter
[02:29] <ZzZombo_> poster*
[02:29] <ZzZombo_> But it got there recently.
[02:29] <ZzZombo_> It wasn't there like a week ago.
[02:30] <infurnus> what web browser do you use
[02:30] <ZzZombo_> Opera
[02:31] <ZzZombo_> http://zandronum.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=2185 actually got a new post since my last visit but appears buggy.
[02:31] <ZzZombo_> Same to http://zandronum.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=3119
[02:34] <ZzZombo_> Okay, as I said it's supposed only to show subscribed threads with unread posts. I just visited them all but it's not the first time I get this sort of things.
[02:34] <infurnus> I don't understand what the bug is
[02:34] <ZzZombo_> Did you look at the image?
[02:34] <infurnus> yes but I don't quite get it, have you tried logging out and logging back in?
[02:34] <infurnus> it sounds like an issue with cookies
[02:35] <ZzZombo_> No, I didn't
[02:35] <ZzZombo_> The bug is that from time to time I get a mess in "Thread Subscriptions With New Posts"
[02:40] <infurnus> http://dev.mybb.com/issues/1426
[02:41] <infurnus> I'll see if there's something I can do on the mybb control panel
[02:42] <ZzZombo_> Nice
[02:43] <infurnus> all I can do is change the cron/task stuff
[02:43] <infurnus> is it still showing old threads?
[02:43] <infurnus> otherwise I don't think this can be fixed without changing the mybb code or writing a plugin
[02:44] <ZzZombo_> No, as I said above I visited all threads were listed there
[02:44] <ZzZombo_> So usercp doesn't show anything.

This bug would possibly require the code to be edited unfortunately.
But possibly a workaround could be made.

Edit: Possibly found the issue and know how to fix it.

Code: Select all

blockquote {
    background-color: #0F0F0F;
    background-image: url("./images/quote.gif");
    border-color: #4e5f49;

blockquote blockquote {
    background-color: #1F1F1F;

blockquote blockquote blockquote {
    background-color: #2F2F2F;
Quotes show up an ugly shade of white, making text barely visible. Here's the CSS for something that looks much nicer.

Yeah, known issue with the WIP theme in phpbb.

All issues we had with MyBB are gone or inherently changed, so I'm going to close this thread and open a new one for the new software to prevent future confusion.
