RESOLVED: No visible indication that a thread has already been read

When mousing over a thread title it in the list of threads, the title changes color to red and gets an underline. After clicking on the thread title to read the post, the thread title returns to its original state. There is no change of text color, format or being grayed out to indicate that the post has been read.

The thread titles are hyperlinks and it appears that the post itself inherits the same CSS. I think the thread listings and forum posts need there own separate CSS for hyperlinks. The non-underlined thread listing hyperlinks looks very good in the list of posts and should be retained. However, it doesn't work well in the post text.

On my tablet (Android toy) the unread threads show up in bold. When I select one (comparable to mousing over it) I get the red letters and an underline. After I open the thread if I use the "back" button to return to the list of threads then the post I have read will still show up in bold. However, if I return to the Playground using the the link (Home>Forums>Development Forums>The Playground) the thread I have read will have turned to regular text (i.e. no longer bold).

I suspect a refresh of the page might also then show which threads have been read.

Yep. Just checked.

At least for me the refresh will then show what has been read.

Could be just me then. I am often accessing the new site through the 'view this thread' button in the email notification. I will wait for you to post a few more times and avoid using the link in email notification. If I browse straight to Playground I reckon I will see what you do, I think I have already when Rob posted yesterday. With more posts being made it will be obvious. All the posts I write are already pre-read for my view.

This can be marked as solved, or non-issue. It was just me not seeing enough posts between visits. I can see the bold thread titles now.
