Jen, a technical question ~m

I am trying to use the dots to show me if I have new messages. How come even if I have read all the messages, the dots come back the next time I log in? GRRRRR. Any suggestions?

Thanks ~Amy

That should only happen if you have new messages. Are you logged in every time you read the messages? It will only recognize that you have read them if you are logged in. If I read the entire board without logging in and then come back later, it will show all messages as unread. However, if I log in and read the whole board....then come back later, there will only be the red dot by threads that have new messages. It's the middle of the night...did that make sense? LOL~
