Mark forums read, by mistake

24 Mar 2017, 16:32

Occasionally I hit the Mark (Sub)forum read buttons by mistake, I would like an Undo button or an Are you sure?-dialog.

Best regards.

There's no way to undo, be a confirmation dialogue should be feasible. This might even be accomplished with a greasemonkey script... I currently don't have much spare time since it is the end of the semester for me, but i will email this to myself as a reminder.

Bump :wave:
This is still very annoying to me.

Cheers.

@Helgef: that's interesting, because I don't like the information window that pops up... :D So I guess its a matter of opinion!

I did it once by accident, the best solution, in theory, and possibly in practice, would be to be able to backup the logs, and restore if necessary.

Is it so popular that it needs to be there on the front page, and not hidden away somewhere? And with no confirmation I believe? I didn't even know those buttons where there at the time.

(I believe I got caught out by something totally not my fault, like a delayed Internet Explorer zoom, or moving window, temporary popup, or something bizarre, which made it worse.)

Btw, related to this, is there some way to get an extended 'New posts' lists?

Hello. Can we do something similar to this? This action is actually irreversible, as opposed to the action of logging out.

Cheers.

joedf, this is excellent, although you can probably work out why I'm reluctant to test it. Cheers. :thumbup:

[EDIT:] Tested, looks great.
Hmm, I noticed a new language forum. Well done joedf muito obrigado.

It seems that after this update the forum titles turn from bold to normal after loading the page.
Are you sure you didn't modify text or css related to text?
