Hey all, another noob question Embarassed

I am curious how Php Raven / Phpbb checks to see whether or not you have seen a post in the forums? I looked through all the databases that would be related, but i cannot seem to find anything that saves it in the database.


So how does it check? I would imagine a timestamp or something, but what does it compare itself to?

Thanks

It stores a timestamp of when you were last logged in (last active session) and a cookie with all the forums posts you have seen.

If the session is reset (browser closed, timeout, etc), then upon the start of the next session, the timestamp is set again. All posts from that point are considered unread until you read them.

phpBB3 actually does away with this simplistic functionality, I believe it actually stores those which you've read in the database.
