The "New Posts since your last visit" indicators don't seem to be updating when I visit the Café anymore and just stay red for weeks making it quite difficult to see which threads I have or haven't read.

Any idea why this is happening?

Thanks Smile

You may have duplicate cookies, or the cookie may have been corrupted. These are the most usual causes for this to happen. Close your browser, delete your Magic Café cookies, and then clear your browser cache. Then log back into the Café. Post back to this thread if your cookies still don't seem to be working after that. You'll need to make at least two visits to the Café, at least 10 minutes apart to see if it works.

Mary,
I notice that when I first arrive as a "guest" when I log on from a computer at work, all the cups are red. Then I log in as me and all the cups are white although there are many messages I haven't read yet in many different fora.
I also noticed that when I log in from home, while there were many red cups on messages I hadn't read, there were white cups on a few messages I hadn't read also..usually 2-3 messages per forum were mis coded. So I always "look beyond the cups" to see what I might have missed.
Does leaving the Café minimized (all day long) while doing other things have any effect on the cups?
Deleting the cookies causes one to start over again with each message base, right?
It just seems to me that the whole cup system is kind of shaky and can't really be relied upon to ensure that no messages are missed - not to sound harsh, just an observation.
Thanks,
tr

The truth can be harsh sometimes - but what you said isn't harsh, just true. Smile

I noticed that, too. If I log in from another computer, all the cups turn white, even if I haven't read the messages. I wish there was a "View Active Topics" or "View Topics Since Last Visit" page.
