Love new email updates option, thanks! But...

Tiffany, purpleinopp GardenWeb, Z8b Opp, ALJuly 9, 2012

Thanks to the administrators of GW for the new features lately. Email updates of additions to threads started by others is a phenomenal improvement, and has been much requested over the years.

But...

When I use the link in the email to read what has been added to a thread, it doesn't cause the link in the forum page to change to visited. Not trying to be Wendy Whiner but it's really not very useful if one subsequently visits the forum and the link appears unvisited. You click it again and realize you have indeed already read everything.

Could someone PLEASE tweak it a bit to accommodate that? (Or at least offer a link to the particular forum page, as the notices to one's own threads always have?)

It sounds like a computer or browser issue. The threads are turning colors just fine for me. I'd suggest you post at the link below, and telling then what browser you are using along with the version.

Here is a link that might be useful: Computer Help forum

In the other thread you said you read the responses in your email. Have you tried clicking the link to the thread, then visiting the forum page? I'm using FF 13.0.1

OOps...I misunderstood before. My guess is that it won't change color since it is being accessed via an email, just like it won't change color if the thread is accessed from 'favorites'.

I haven't stored any threads so didn't know that, but yes, that's what I'm talking about.

I don't know if it's possible for it to appear visited with this type of dynamic link, hence the request for a link in the email to the forum page as well as the link to the thread.
