Persistent "Unread Posts" & "requested topic does not exist"

Post by Son of a Beach »

I have a forums member who wishes to use the new "View Unread Posts" feature of 3.0.6, however, when he clicks on that link on the index page, there are a number of posts that are always listed there. When he clicks on the links for these persistent topics, he just gets the error, "The requested topic does not exist".

Being that these (non-existent?) topics cannot be viewed/read, the user can never get them off their "unread posts" list.

He's sent me some of the links from his list, and I get the same error from those links (but don't get those links in my own unread list).

Please let me know how I can resolve this problem.

I thought that it could be a problem with the search indexing. So I've deleted and re-created the search index, but the user informs me that this did not help. :-(

Please help! :-)

Did your member try to click the "Mark forums read" button on the Board Index?

sorry for the late reply...

Doh! I really should have thought of that.

Yes, that worked nicely, and has solved the problem for the user. :-) Thanks for the suggestion.

Case Closed.
