Clearing New and Updated Topics

When I visit the Forum I usually go to the New and Updated Topics listing to see what's been posted since my last visit.  I mark each forum read so on my next visit I only see what's been posted since my last.  Currently there is a post listed for the Region Reps forum that I cannot clear since that forum is private.  How do I clear this listing?

Re: Clearing New and Updated Topics

Actually, you can't.  There's a problem in that you shouldn't even see this thread title.  The system is working correctly to the extent that if you try to visit the thread, you get an Access Denied message instead.  But the same access rules should be used to prevent the message title from showing up in your list of topics.  I have to dig into this to find out why it isn't working right.

I've added a link to the top of the New and Updated list that I believe will clear all of unread posts from your list.

And now I've turned it into a button, so it looks a bit more natural.

I hope your fix wirks.  Unfortunately, now my New and Updated Topics button has disappeared.

Do you mean that the tab disappeared?  That's odd.  The Read All button does go away when you have nothing more to read; there's no point in clicking it then.

Yes, the tab was missing.  However, it's back now, along with the Mark All Read button.
