Default Mark Forums Read

Someone at the NVCF asked if I could add "Mark Forums Read" to the top menu bar as it is difficult to access in "Quick Links" on mobile devices. This is now done.

I wasn't that person, but thank you - it is certainly a function I use every time I look at the forum(s) after looking at those threads I consider of interest, so this will save me having to go into "Quick Links" and selecting it from there each time.

Unfortunately it is now very easy to click on this link unintentionally, especially as it is adjacent to the New Posts link. (Guess how I know that?) There is no confirmation prompt. I will be more careful in future, but I can see this causing more problems than it solves.

I have moved it to between "Quick Links" and "Log Out", hopefully less likely to select it by mistake there.

Can you post a screenshot if it looks odd for you Mike? What browser are you using?

Attached is how it looks for me with Firefox.

It was my suggestion and it's a great improvement.

Well done Paul.

I had not noticed the change until I saw this thread and it seems I never ever do anything from the top bar - even for search there is a separate box and why would you ever want to log out... As long as you keep the existing one at the bottom I am happy.

I have added a confirmation on the "Mark Forums Read" on the top bar now, to reduce the risk of doing so accidentally.

Ugh. It is actually less likely to be done accidentally than it was as a drop-down.

OK, since every variation of this attempt to help has upset someone, I have put it back as it was originally - just in the Quick Links dropdown. I can't be bothered to waste any more time with it.
