Question on "read" threads

I've never double-clicked that bell looking icon at the far left before. The one that says by doing so will mark that forum as read. So I did about an hour ago and left the forum.
I came back to find that color had appeared in some of the icons again and I thought that meant there were new posts or replies. It didn't. Some of the threads were bolder blue colored even, but there hadn't been any new replies to them.

Do I not have something set right, or is this another glitch like the working/not working email notification?

That happens to me too - I can mark a forum read but when I come back sometimes it shows stuff as unread. It's just a glitch I do believe. I will forward this onto Tech Support though.

First, I don't see a bell looking icon at the far left.

Question. When you came back and saw the bolder blue posts, were you logged in or not? If you are not logged in as a member, the site doesn't know who you are so can't show which posts you've read already.

Thanks. Sinnce the notification doesn't always work, I was trying to find an alternative method for knowing if there were new posts or replies.

Andy, I am automatically logged in when I first arrive.
And it looks like a yellowish bell to me Or maybe a slice of bread?

That's it, UB. The page that lists all the forums and sub-forums.
What's that icon look like to you?

I see the icon you mean. I have no idea what it's supposed to be.

I have had a similar problem happen to me from time to time. What I do is, after reading all the new posts, I go to Mark Forums Read and click on that. It marks all forums read through the current time. When I come back later I only see truly unread posts.

I see white ones & gold(?) ones. Maybe a slice of white bread. Some with butter, some without!
