How does this work ?????????

Post by chicken dippa »

For some reason the new posts & Last visit was: doesn't update unless I manually log out.

So when I've not logged out manually - eventually when I click view new posts it's taking me back 20 pages/1000 + & I'm not this lucky to have 20 pages in one day :lol:

The Last visit was: will also state to when I last manually logged in so If I never log out manually I shall never log back in meaning it never vhanges :?

On phpBB2 once This data is based on users active over the past... expires my account/username without the need to manually logging out - once I refresh it places my name back on "Who is online" and clicking view new posts are refreshed to whats new since my account/username was expired till refreshing & Last visit was: is also updated back to normal :roll:



Is this how phpBB3 works or a bug with the phpBB software or my own little bug :(

If somone could please help me out ?

Sorry to piggy-back on this topic, but I am also having that problem. Surely this isn't by design.

This is standard behaviour for phpBB3.

I posted up before about the last login info showing the last time i manually logged in a while back and it was never answered.

I understand it's standard behavior, but I also believe it's effecting other items as well, such as the "View New Posts" links. It will continue to list posts you've already read because it thinks your last visit was, in some cases, days ago as opposed to maybe a few hours ago. Version 2 did not behave like this and it's wreaking havoc on my users.

I've been on several other phpBB3 forums including this one (phpbb.com & none of these have this problem so it can't be standard behavior :roll:

It's been a while and I'm still having this issue!

I've registered as a test member also, clicked view new posts & they dated back 20 pages being one day before.

I'd just registered this test member 2 min before :?

If anyone can help it's much appreciated ;)

Actually yes. That is a bug. Well sort of a bug. However, this will not be corrected mostly in the 3.0.x as this bug has really been confusing the developers. Its just that the collaboration of all these features makes it very difficult to track such minor bugs.

Lets hope someone or the dev team could come up with the solution sometime soon.
