    Why all of the sudden are the news cache dumps effecting my Unread Posts?

    They haven't been listed under unread until yesterday. Just wondering.

    Yup, I noticed some weirdness there, too.

    Over the past couple of months I have received 2 complaints that the newsfeed posts weren't accessible via links. Newsfeed posts add the content of an rss feed to the news search pages so they weren't previously publically accessible. Since a couple of members wanted to see that content as a post I changed the way that content was displayed.

    I didn't realize that this would create unwanted unread posts. To eliminate their inclusion in the unread post counts I had to change the permissions back to the way they used to be.

    I'll have to figure out another way to set it up.

    I'm fine with it, I was just wondering. What about a news category with sub-forums for the particular RSS?

    *Edit* That isn't very clear in what I said... I meant how about setting it up like

    UPS Latest Headlines > UPS Press Releases

    Such as

    News > UPS News
    > Teamster News
    > Blah
    > Blah


    I would go for that, instead of having it hidden and needing a search.
