Highlighting for visited pages

Why does it no longer highlight pages that I've visited? This just started following the maintenance window last night.

Hi Mark,

Sorry if I'm missing the obvious, but where on the page are you looking? I don't know if you're asking about "You recently viewed......" (which I'm seeing at the bottom of the page). Do you mind providing a bit more information....or maybe someone else knows.

Regards,

It used to highlight, in red, the topics I've opened within any given forum. And within that, if there are multiple pages, it would tell me which pages i've opened. Now it does neither.

So let's say there are 10 pages in a topic, and I've looked at all 10. Up until 7:00 pm last night, I could tell which ones I've been to. Since the maintenance last night, I can't. They all appear unread.

Now it's working for the topic, but still not the pages within the topic.

Oh, the thread read/unread colour problem. Yes, that's been happening for a few weeks and makes it difficult as sometimes you go back only to see it's your own answer. There's a thread about it:

tripadvisor.ca/ShowTopic-g1-i12105-k5842136-…

Note that there's Post 11 from TA_Dan.

Does this sound like what you're experiencing?

I tried it with Firefox, and it works, but not with Internet Explorer.

Thanks for posting about it. This post may be seen by one of the staff as it's a probable bug report but I'd suggest contacting TA staff about it (you can include the URL of this thread):

LuckyFour,

No, I don't think it's the same issue, although it could be related. This just started immediately after the maintenance window last night.

I also have problems with the "Back" button at times. It just won't go back at times. If I double click on Back, it will sometimes do it, but sometimes it bypasses multiple screens and I'm out. This happens most frequently after I've responded to a post.

Thanks...

In terms of the "back button" issue, is this new since maintenance or has it been happening for awhile....we also have a "back button" recent thread:

tripadvisor.ca/…44814932

Again, is this similar to your issue?

Thanks,

L4
