"Unread" link on mobile site for subscribed threads

pdp76 1,447 328 November 26, 2015 at 09:09 AM
This is and has been broken for months now. Will it ever get fixed? Clicking on he "Unread" link doesn't do anything in Safri for iOS (and probably other mobile browsers).

You probably want to post this in the Site Questions, Issues or Suggestions Forum.

2 months passed and no fix. This feature worked fine with the "old" mobile site and even worked briefly with the current mobile site, why not fix it? It was very handy when it worked, but instead the non-working link is there just taunting me to try it but fails to do anything.

I'm also wondering about this. It's pretty annoying for the link to be there yet it doesn't work. Any updates?

Hooray, thank you!

Just curious, is there only like a handful of us who use this feature on mobile, is that why it escaped everyone attention for so long? This feature is and has been on the desktop site for as long as I can remember and I use it all the time there. Can't wait for it to work on mobile again.

Good question - no, what happened is that the thread was lost in the shuffle. I look at Mobile App sub-forum and then the Site Issues and Suggestions forum for mobile issues. This thread was originally somewhere else and was then moved into SIS, but when it was moved I wasn't notified and didn't see it. So anyhow, now I see it! My fault, apologies again.

Is there anyway you could send a screenshot of the issue? It is going to help me get a fix in quickly. Just want to make sure I am looking at the same place - Subscribed under 'Profile', correct?

Yes, it's the "Subscribed" tab under Profiles. I don't have any unread subscribed threads right now, but when I do, there is a link right under the thread title on the left side that reads "Unread (n)" where n is the number of unread posts in that thread. Clicking on that link does nothing when it should bring you to the first unread post of that thread, like it does on the desktop site.

Anyway, thanks again for jumping on this and apologies for posting in the wrong thread initially!
