Stuck unread nonexistent post ** FIXED **

Postby cacb » 2016-Feb-Tue-14-Feb

I usually read the forum via the "unread posts" link search.php?search_id=unreadposts , it is a good way to follow what is going on. However, recently there is a post "Cura control screen gone 15.04.02" viewtopic.php?f=16&t=10710 that is stuck in my list of unread posts. When I click it, I am told "The requested topic does not exist.". Since it does not exist, I cannot read it and it therefore remains forever in my list of unread posts.

Can this be fixed?

I no of no way to fix this. you could, if you wanted, try deleting cookies for this site. although I am unsure if that will work.

I access this forum from several different computers, it is the same everywhere. I think it is a problem in the forum database. I wonder if others see the same issue.

I cleared this phantom post by using "Mark forums read" on the front page of the forums.

I found a way to solve the problem via DuckDuckGo https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtop ... &t=1890725

When this happens, you can go to the main forum page and click the "Mark Forums Read" link at top right. The list of unread posts is then cleared. Problem solved.

I found a way a mod can remove the topic in the phpBB docs, after the Korean restaurant episode today. Took a while, but it's history. Insert Queen youtube video here :)

I had those as ghost posts, but once you know how to deal with them it isn't a problem. I used to like Queen up to approximately 1975 :P

I'm sort of a selective Queen fan, but there's just something about spam and machine guns :)
