Forum marking posts as read too fast?

Postby Justin42 on Fri Mar 30, 2007 9:23 pm

I've noticed lately that if I don't open all of the forums/posts with new messages almost immediately (opening tabs like crazy), that the forum marks everything as read and the links just say "No new posts since your last visit" if I click on the "view new posts" icons next to certain threads.

Today, it happened almost instantaneously, that only the first 3-4 posts I opened showed new posts, and everything else did the "No new posts" thing. Normally I have a good 10 minutes or so before this happens...

I looked through the settings and don't see anything that might control this, is there any way to slow down how fast the forum assumes your "current visit" is your "last visit"?

That's happened to me too. I'll talk to Socheat next week and see if there's something we can do.

Ugh.. this is driving me nuts. I hit the website, click on one of the sections and all my unread posts disappear.

I did talk to Socheat about this and he thought the sessions might be recycling too quickly. We've had session problems in the past where the session table would fill up. The current hack/fix empties out the table.

I also noticed this early this week and was wondering WTH was going on...

I checked tonite and googlebot is hammering the site. I have a feeling its using up sessions like crazy.

I installed a mod that should (hopefully) throttle this back a bit. If you have any problems, let me know. If it seems to help, let me know too.

Since I don't logon automatically, my symptoms were different- namely being logged out after a few seconds. :evil: I learned to be wary when there were < 20 (about) users present.

This hasn't happened since your mod- so it seems to be doing the trick! =D>

I also was logged off automatically yesterday while I was looking at the unread posts.

Havent checked today. If it happens again, I'll let you know.

You will still get logged out automatically if the sessions table fills up and your session is deleted... but the mod slows this down considerably.

I got logged out twice tonight while drafting a message. I don't think that it was more than 5 minutes. :evil: Has anyone else noticed this recently?

I don't have "Log me on automatically each visit" checked (if that's what you mean). FireFox has my ID and password stored, though, but that should be irrelevant. How long is the timeout interval? I'm sure it was longer than 5 min.

The problem with phpBB is that the session table fills up quickly. As it is, we've had to implement a few hacks to get it at the point where it is now. I'm hoping this isn't an issue with phpBB 3.
