Whenever I log in I find random topics highlighted as having new posts.  Anyone else?

Brendan, go to each topic and open them one at a time and look in the right hand corner just above the list of topics and click on the tab that says... "Mark as Read" I'll remove all the new topic markers and that may solve your problem. I've had this happen a time or two before, but once you've cleared all the topics, it seems to take care of that problem. Hope this helps.

I've read this a dozen times since you posted this, I must be missing something.

The reason topics are highlighted as having new posts is because the software is alerting you that there are new posts in that thread.

Like Mike and Tom already mentioned, there are ways to mark topics or whole forums as read. You can even mark a thread as unread.

Is there something else going on like little men in green suits dancing across the screen?
If there is then there would be cause for concern.

LOL Ron,

What is happening is....I log on and see that there is a check mark beside, say, 'Tool Talk' to let me know there has been a new post.  When I open 'Tool Talk' the new post is at the top with a check beside it but there are also checks beside other random threads that haven't got a new post added. 

It has only happened once today but last night it was happening every time I logged on and I did that a lot to (as my log will verify Grin).

Anyhow, I've done the 'All Read' checks etc and things are better.

Dave,
I think with the 2 cases of Killians I got from making 2 pens. I think I'll have another one & join them dancing.  Grin
