After I read a thread via hot posts, the "new" flag disappears, but it still shows up in my hot posts. I even went to another board, another site, etc. (though I didn't clear my cache, i don't want to have to do this each time i want hot posts refreshed).
The only time I can get hot posts to clear read threads is when i choose "mark all as read".
Is this fixable? I ADORE the new hot posts, by the way. Thank you!
