[Forum] Your own reply counts as a new post.

If you post a reply to a thread the forum treats it as if the thread has a new unread post.

  • Aarrgh. This is so irritating.

    It is especially annoying when you altered the styles specifically to make it easier to see which threads are new/read/unread/etc. and this bug basically ruins that.

    I guess this counts as a work around but you can reload(F5) after posting to avoid the problem. :/

    This is actually not the first time it has happened unfortunately. Vanilla Forums does not seem to be doing regression testing.

    I didn't see this before posting my own thread, my apologies. My own post was:

    I've noticed the past couple of days that when I post a comment in a thread, then proceed to the forum containing that thread, it lists it as "1 new." So to clear that I then have to revisit the thread and confirm that my post is the new one.

    It's a very minor issue, but is a slight QoL degradation from previous behavior which marked my post as read just by the automatic loading after I hit "Post Discussion."

    Yup. The bug is back.
