Why can't I mark anything as read anymore?

I really hate boards that determine what's read and unread for me :x . I know what I've read and what I haven't. Why does this board not allow me to do mark stuff as read!?!

Possibly because this forum is not yet finished, and is alpha software, and therefore something might be broken.

I really hate users that moan and complain about alpha quality software ... particularly when what they say isn't really the situation ;) If you read a topic it's marked read, if you read a topic which has unread posts spread across several pages it will be marked read only when the last page is read. If you want to mark a forum read, click the link in each forum. If you want to mark all forums read click the link on the index.

This new layout is confusing . . . sry about my frustration . . .

I can't seem to mark recursive forums, though - sometimes, even when all of the sub-forums are read, the parent forums don't get marked as read . . .

Is there a way to disable this auto-marking and only mark as read when I specifically say so?

Not the answer I was looking for :(. I hope the final version of the boards will allow doing it manually, or it'll be the first mod I'm making . . .

Why you ignorant Ba$^@rd! :lol: Read the post. Thank you. :D We are in alpha, expect things to be missing or not working. Anything that phpBB had in 2.0 will be in 2.2... they aren't taking out features. (unless replacing them with something better ;) )
