Unread highlighting on mobile browser

mahirmahir Member, Developers Posts: 1,284 ✭✭✭✭✭
This is the definition of a minor annoyance, but I could have sworn that unread forum posts used to be highlighted blue on mobile browsers. This is no longer the case, at least not on my particular platform. I'm using Chrome on iOS. Anyone else running across the same thing or, even better, have a fix?

    I am using iOS Safari on an iPad Air 2 and the unread posts are blue. I just checked using Chrome and they are blue there as well.

    Are you signed in when using your mobile browser?

    Hmm, strange. I am indeed signed in. I tried signing out and in, but no change. I even tried switching to Safari, but no change. Considering it seems to be an issue across different browsers on my phone, but it works fine on your phone, it's seems to be an issue with my specific account. Either that, or something with the mobile site. Hopefully, someone at OnShape has a solution. If not, I'll live.

    Unread discussions still not highlighting. Any other thoughts?

    Is it all unread forum posts?

    I've seen something similar to this occasionally on a desktop browser as well (Chrome on Win 10).
    Some new or updated discussions will be highlighted blue, and interspersed between them will be threads that obviously have new unread messages but are still white. Seems to be a bug with the forum software, at least in my case.

    It's all forum posts. None show up with blue highlight on my iPhone.

    @mahir I see this too on Chrome and Safari on iOS.  I see them marked as "1 new" but not a coloring like on the web.  Now if I tell the browser to load Desktop site (which from the mobile site is an option in the sidebar) it shows as I would expect.  I am not sure the mobile template does that highlighting.  I will look at how to add that to the mobile view.
