For several months now the "lightbulbs" and "New Post" indicators don't change regardless of how recently I have visited a forum. Most will stay yellow for 2-3 days after the last message is posted in a topic. The "Jump to New Posts" feature also doesn't work for me. Most often "jumps" to the first post of the thread, sometimes to whatever was posted 2-3 days ago if a long thread.

Is there some setting I can adjust to enable these features? All the computers I access this forum on are operating Windows ME.

I've had this problem before with Windows 98SE and had to erase the cookies and then sign in again. MY PROFILE at the top of the screen has an option to do this. I also went into TOOLS -> Internet Options -> SECURITY and reset each of the 4 to DEFAULT (as well as the one under ADVANCED).

This cleared it up for me...

Are you exiting Internet Explorer between sessions? If that doesn't solve your problem try deleting cookies in your Grumble profile.

If IE is set to delete temp files after each session then the bulbs will all come up lit. When all else fails, go by the date.
