    Do You Come Here By Way of Explorer?

    Due to some glitches in AOL, I have started coming to the Board with Explorer. In AOL when I entered a post, the color of the title would change from green to pink. With Explorer, If I go in a day later the titles are all green again. I find myself reading things several times, now.

    Is there a way to have titles of the posts stay pink once I have read them?

    I come through Explorer also. Posts appear in greenish blue....once I view them, the title turns purple and seems to stay that way. Posts I've looked at yesterday or the day before are purple.

    I think that I may have an answer. Mine change to purple after I have read them. But under Tools, Internet Options, General - about 2/3 down the box there is a section on Browsing History. I have a check mark in the box indicating that I want my browsing history deleted when I exit IE. I do this because I don't want it slowing down my computer by saving all sorts of 'temporary' stuff. When I next open IE, the files are back to the original color; the program/computer doesn't where it has been the previous time. Hope this helps. If you don't want the browsing history deleted when you exit IE, uncheck the box.

    I use Google Chrome here; IE seems to have very unstable for me lately. I can tell the ones I've read because the title is no longer in BOLD type.

    I use Chrome. The posts I read are different color.

    Google Chrome for me and then I go straight to ARCHIVE to see all new posts/topics, which are a different color than those I've read.

    Wow! I have no idea what you all are talking about. I am using Firefox but think Chrome is my browser thing but nothing ever changes color for when I read or look at the next day. Weird. Makes me wonder why???

    I use Safari and always delete my history on closing and empty cookies and tracking ads. I generally remember where I stopped or what I read.
