No,  unfortunately not.  But,  anything that's new after you pressed that button will still show up as new.

thanks! its my own clumsy fault anyway. I should have been more careful, also, i saw an IRL pic of you with the full 50s clothes, i always wear one of those coats and trousers and sometimes a waistcoat to college. You looked slick.

I dont.

When I returned, I had three whole pages in my recently unread. x_x

They went bye-bye. ;)

Yeah, I work hard to avoid that button.  You'd think a pop up would come up asking if you were sure, considering how close it is to the All Unread Topics button, or at least move it to a less clickable spot, or just remove it from the bottom (keeping the top one) all together.

Maybe we could ask Weismann for a pop up? He changes the layout right? O.o

It's just that it's right next to the all unread topics button XD although I do find it funny AND frustrating when I accidentally click it. I guess I can deal with it, everything has to have it's quirks to make it fun ^_^

Not something I ever have to worry about myself considering the theme I use doesn't place it near anything I need to click on but I'll have a look on the default theme and see about adding a popup.

Yes, there are indeed!

Go to Profile -> Look and layout -> Current Theme: Forum or Board Default (change) <- and click the text I've highlighted here.

The info theme's the most common nonstandard theme; it's a variant of the standard theme that has a few additions and changes (most notably the info box at the top, but there are other tidbits as well).  There's also a cell phone theme, which focuses on minimizing the forum's resource footprint (there are almost no images).  Last but not least, there are also a few themes that are generic SMF themes.

Have fun tinkering!

Also, Bear Guy, I did some tinkering, and I think you might find the following set of instructions to be of interest.


  • Get the Stylish browser plugin (it's available on Chrome and Firefox; it may be available on other browsers as well).

  • Create a new script, and apply it to URLs on the domain forums.furtopia.org.

  • Add the following code to the new script (you don't need to add any other code to it):

    Quote
    a[href^="http://forums.furtopia.org/index.php?action=markasread;sa=all"] { display: none; }
    a[href*="action=markasread;sa=board"] { display: none; }

    The code block basically says "look for links that lead to either the page that executes the 'mark all forum threads as read' function or the page that executes the 'mark all threads within a board as read' function, and don't display their contents".

  • Revel in the knowledge that a link that isn't rendered in the browser cannot accidentally be clicked.

  • Enjoy!

...A bit of troubleshooting, then...

...First of all, if you're using Firefox rather than Chrome (I apparently didn't do quite enough tinkering...), the script will need a bit more formatting (it seems Chrome isn't as strict with its requirements...):

Quote
@namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);

@-moz-document domain("forums.furtopia.org") {
a[href^="http://forums.furtopia.org/index.php?action=markasread;sa=all"] { display: none; }
a[href*="action=markasread;sa=board"] { display: none; }
}


Make sure the script's saved and enabled.  Also note that if the script's working, there won't be fanfares or rainbows; the links will just not be there anymore.

Was any of those things your issue?

Is it in different places with different themes? If so, maybe switching to another theme would sort it?

Given that you accidently mark all topics you don't need to press "All Unread Topics".

However at least I can see what you're on about now.

Moved from right side to left side. If you still hit it I'll be amazed.
