When is a subscription update reminder not a reminder

Not sure if anyone else has had this problem but I'm showing 1 subscription as having been update (red circle with a 1 in it next to subscriptions in main menu).

When I click on my subscriptions they are all showing as "read" and there don't seem to be any updated threads. This happened briefly yesterday when the Aaaaand we are back thread disappeared for a few hours. Once the thread returned all was well again.

I've tried re-reading the threads in my subscriptions and have logged in/out several times to see if that helps......it doesn't

Any ideas anyone?

Hi Phil

Just looked at mine and I can't detect anything logical. Nothing fits in with the number displayed in the red circle, which appears to be random.

Can't help I'm afraid.

Appears to me that the subscription No. shows posts that you are subscribed to that have not been viewed. Click on subscriptions and the bold ones are the ones you have not looked at.

Exciting this learning curve.

Yes - it's puzzling!
I had 3 subscribed items with one containing an unread post - but the little red circle showed '2'.
I've now deleted each subscribed thread, one by one ... and the circled number s now '1' - but there ARE NO THREADS that I'm subscribed to!!

Just in case the systems guys are watching, I had previously tried to delete all subscribed threads and got an error message... which I failed to record - sorry!

Hi Barry, I did try all that but I still show as 1 subscription has been updated but all my subscriptions have been viewed.

Hi Bill, yes that sounds like the same issue as I've got. It looks like a thread that I had subscribed to has been updated and then deleted but the little circle hasn't been told.
@VS_Admin Any ideas on this one please?

P.S. This multi-quote option is brilliant!

Phil, for info, I just went back to my subscriptions and hit the 'empty the current folder' link and this time it worked and I have no subscriptions showing.
Might be worth trying that.
regards,
Bill

If there was a thank button I would press it Bill, sadly all I can do is like your post though.

Did what you said and emptied the folder completely then re-subscribed to those threads that I wanted updates on. Finally the annoying little "1" has gone away Thanks again.
