Unread messages - scheduled job frequency?


#1

How often does the unread messages job run? I’ve noticed I’ve refreshed the unread list but not got any results, only to see in a forum that there’s a new post in a thread I’m interested in. I know it must be scheduled but can’t figure out the frequency.

Also on that note, if I go and review the thread I’m following directly (or if I go to an active thread from my already-unread list) I can come back later after a subsequent unread messages job pass and be shown the same thread - even though there’s actually no new post there. (hope I explained that well enough). Seems like it’s not “fully” resetting the “I’ve read that thread” trigger, more seems like it records “you read a specific post in the thread” and assumes you didn’t scroll :slight_smile:

It is done on login. So, if you close the browser and reopen it, you will get a fresh list of new messages.

There is a long list of enhancement that we have for the forum

log in and log out, works as frequently as you want, lol, it’s the first thing I do when I return at the site.

It’s hard if you’re in the chat (you will get logged out in chat as well !)


#4

login and logout? What, leave my mates here all alone? That’s why I like cookies to log me in. That, plus I hate remembering passwords. :o

It obviously has to do with session state on the server side. On new session, build the list.

i log in and out at least 20 times a day :wink:


#6

well you obviously know your password, I guess I will have to guess mine :wink:

lastpass is my Saviour.

The unread list is built at log in and every minute after that. The code still needs some work. It was an approach I came up with that has some bugs in the timing. The forum will be revamped within everyone’s suggestions and a few of my own next month.

I suppose in the mean time we could come up with a Greasemonkey script to auto login/out.
