Default Tapatalk unread


Not sure what's happening with this but I'm struggling with Tapatalk as the unread listing is never accurate.

Specifically, if I go away and come back in a few days only discussions from perhaps the past 24hrs are listed as "unread".

This causes problems where threads will have new replies but won't ever see them unless I happen to browse through my subscribed topics or click into a thread that is marked as read.

This only affects my viewing of the RR forums, and I don't browse forums via the browser often enough to spot if the issue is Tapatalk vs forum specific.

Any ideas?

Still struggling with this.

I've been away for a few weeks and everything older than around 24hours in already marked as read. This obviously isn't the case.

Fortunately I tend to subscribe to the interesting threads I come across so can browse through those, scroll back through the thread until finding something that I recognise, and read from there.

It does mean that there are a lot of new threads and existing threads that I end up missing out on new replies to.

Frustrating, to say the least!

Its not a tapatalk issue, the read flag on a thread only gets set about half the time even when browsing the site directly.

It is why I don't use Tapatalk. It always marks threads read that I haven't read. Was causing me to miss many discussions.

I have the same problem no matter how I access Radio Reference. I see the same thing with my laptop using Chrome or Firefox and with my phone or tablet using Tapatalk. It's the main reason I've become less active on the forum.
