Reset Last Read Pointers

A manual reset pointers (dates) feature is builtin to BestBBS to keep track of which messages you have read.

At the top of the Forums Index Page is a link Reset Last Read Pointers. Clicking this link will clear your last read date to the current time and clear the red bullet markers next to each subforum.

If you are not logged in, a cookie is set to denote the time and date that you reset the pointers. If you are logged in, your member file on the system will be updated. In a conflict, your member file pointers will be used. This allows you to keep the same set of pointers from two different computers such as your work computer to home computer.
