'New' flags not appearing

With the new upgrades, I'm noticing that my 'new' flags aren't appearing.

When I first posted under the thread for change, I wasn't seeing the 'new' flags anywhere. Then they reappeared, but only on my threads.

Now they've reappeared on SOME boards (and on all the boards I frequent, which happily reduces the impact on ME), but they still aren't showing on the "latest posts" page....other boards that I don't visit regularly have no 'new' tags.

Seems to be a moving target -- sorry for that...

  1. Poking around, I've got the missing NEW markers, but only on boards in which I've not read any of the threads on the current page- if I view even one, go back, and refresh, the NEW flags show up for all of the other threads.

    To be clear, are you missing the NEW flag on individual posts as they appear within a topic? Or only on the topics as they're listed on board pages?

      They're missing from the topics on the lists. So far (crosses fingers) the function where read posts are collapsed and new posts appear in their entirety is working like always.

      Update, a few minutes later -- it seems that the 'latest posts' page is REALLY slow to update -- posts I've read or written aren't even showing up on the list until 5-10 minutes later (like this one).

        Here meaning the lists on your profile, like the stuff under "My Activity" ?

          No, I've got the flags on the posts on my profile --

          It's down now to boards I don't read anyway, and the "latest posts" page -- I just updated my last post, and I think we crossed wires.

            Just an example -- I replied to nomadchowwoman's question about chocolate chip substitutions here:


            At the moment I'm writing this, the post itself, and the page for My Posts reads that I posted that 8 minutes ago.

            The "latest posts" page still shows that topic as having no replies.

              Gotcha, assuming "latest posts" refers to

              I'm fairly certain I see what's causing this behavior and should be able to address it soon. Thank you for your report.

                  We actually haven't done anything yet...

                    it was, there for a minute :/ ...back to no flags on the main page again.

        I've found that's always been the case, but never thought it was worth reporting. But now, as you've said, the main Chowhound board is missing the "new". For me, that's the only one I've noticed.

      3. I also have no new flags on the main board. First noticed it when I came on the site this morning. At first I thought I had been logged out (that's usually the first way I notice) but I am most definitely logged in.
