Fixed Mark forum read doesn't mark sub forums read?

    Don't know if this is really a bug or a feature, but if I'm in a forum with sub forums, and I mark the parent forum as "read" (using the "mark this forum read" link above and to the right of the list of threads) the sub-forum isn't marked as read. At least that what I assume is happening, when I visit the forum home again, I still see that the parent forum link is bold (unread), until I go into the sub forum, and mark that as "read".

    Maybe its a feature? If it is, do you have to visit each sub forum and mark it read if you're not interested in it?

    I tried a search, but couldn't find anything related to "mark forum read" and "sub forums".

    :p I never mark forums read, unless it's on accident.

    How should subforums be handled when marking a forum read? It could get a little complicated, or maybe as simple as a 'subforums' radio button/check box.

    Shouldn't happen again with the confirmation :D

    I've actually always hated how marking a parent forum in vBulletin marks all of the sub-forums as read as well. What if I want to mark only the parent forum and its threads as read, but not the sub-forums? In vBulletin, I can't... but with XenForo's current setup, I can. :cool:

    I like it how it is now.

    The link does say, "Mark all forums read"

    But I still prefer double clicking the forum icon to mark it read.

    The subject of this thread as well as my post was the marking of forums with sub-forums as read. Not using the forum-wide "Mark all forums as read" button. ;)

    How are you marking the forum read? I'm missing something.

    Above the thread list on the right is the link, "Mark this forum read."

    Interesting. I've never seen/noticed it. Cheers.
