When i log out and log back in, my postings go from greyed out to blue (like I've never read them)

I should mention that no one has responded to them. Unsure if they were viewed. I doubt it though. Besides myself, that is.

I've seen the same thing. Also, topics I've read appear in the list of "new since you were last here" topics.

I think I understand why this happens. If correct, it'll take work to straighten out. As part of integrating JForum with the SM website I've torn out the JForum authentication mechanism and plugged in the SM one in its place. That was the major effort of getting the two code bases to play nice together. I've tried to accomplish all the same login and logout steps that JForum expects, but, my guess is there's some necessary timestamp not being set somewhere during login/logout which is how JForum reckons whether to show the "new message" signs or not when you come back. So this might take some digging.

I would like to add that when I log into the forum with another computer, some of the posts that would normally be grey are then blue. I don't know if it is specific to the browser cookies, but this points to it being yes.
