Jason or Moderator,
The little salmon colored files on the far left of the forums pages used to turn yellow after you had accessed that forum.
Have I accidently turned this feature off or has it been discontinued? Not a big deal, just wondering.

Lest my eyes decieve me, they are still there.

You may have to reset your cookies..

Preferences->Delete All Cookies Set by this site.

Then go back to preferences and hit submit.

It will reset the cookie so they should show up.

Ditto for me...I followed Shawn's instructions and closed my browser.

After loading my browser and going to the forums section, it still indicates that my last "visit" was back on 8/24/99 and the folder colors did not change to yellow.

I had the same thing happen when I set the Forums page with a bookmark. I use Netscape and if I enter from the F-D.com home page the light is on. If I come in direct with a bookmark the light is off. Hope this helps.

Yup, its the "No New Posts" symbol that doesn't come on anymore and I'm coming off my browse through the Ford-D home page.

Do a search for "cache" (start,find...) that is located under the Netscape folder.
Delete all contents. It sounds like somthing is amiss.

Also what version of netscpe are you using?

I had a similar problem on a different site and it was because I was coming in from a bookmark. If I open the file through netscape it works fine. Andy Tierney

I use cookie pal which enables me to examine the cookies set by ford-diesel.com. I've0 deleted all the "last login date" cookies. I've done this twice on different dates. Each time I log back into the forums I always get two "last login date" cookies set on my machine. One (the first one) is always set at 8/25 and the other one gets the real date. It looks like somewhere/somehow a cookie is always being set indicating 8/25 as my last login. I noticed this problem about 4 days ago and just ignored it, figured it was something messed up on my system. Not so sure now where the problem is.

I have had the same problem didn't think much of it til now, I am using netscape 4.5, I just tried to delete and reset cookies, still showing my last visit at 8/25 @ 6:49am. It also wiped out my username/password, yes I clicked were it said to save it. Not really a big deal just thought this might help everyone else solve their problem.

Travis,

I'm running Netscape v4.6 and I deleted both caches (memory and disk). The problem still persists.

This problem is not a big deal. I would like to fix this soon cuz' when it worked, it sure was easy to find the last topic I read...

Thanks for the assistance...
