    Was there a recent change to the forum? I can't seem to mark forums read using the navbar link.

    It's right under forums when you are viewing the forums list.

    The whole lot? As Maddox said above.
    A single forum(subforum, node)? It's not available in XF1

    Thanks.
    I've never discovered it in XF1, it's hidden in Mark Forums Read.
    In XF2 it's simple.

    When I was on this morning it wasn't there. Perhaps it is my desktop browser that was acting up, as I have no issue now on my laptop. It show initially but then slipped away and was replaced by the "Watched Forums".

    There was no alcohol involved in this post ;)

    It's probably not the case but ad-blockers have been known to emulate the effects caused by a skin full of rum and ginger wine so if you have one it might be worth turning it off.

    We have the "Mark as read" option in xf, but do i really miss in xf is "mark as unread" for threads and conversations.

    What does that mean?

    Yes there are quite a few new posts every day. I'm sure that makes TAZ quite happy.

    Note that this registers number of posts, not new threads.

    I can't replicate it either. The new post count is 100% accurate for me and has been for quite a while. There was a bug that left a phantom +1 which I think was related to an admin action but that was fixed a long time ago.

    I can't imagine what might be causing the problem but I don't think it's anything server side or we have had other reports.
