I installed the new version 1.69 of selmsg.php.t and rebuilt the theme. Unread messages are displayed in ascending order, oldest message first.

There is a buggy in the code logic, I already fixed in the CVS.
That's the idea, the new order is only for "unreplied messages".

It is fixed there... as far as unanswered messages are concerned.

Unanswered message, yes, they are displayed in descending order. No. 17 above, however, specifically says "unread messages". Those are two different things.

Perhaps the original message in this topic should be edited to correct no. 17.

The oldest message on our forums is from 1988. It comes up first? That's desirable?? Which file determines this? Could there be an optional version that displays them in descending order?

You cannot possibly have your 1st unread message be in 1998.

It's 1988, and the result of importing the archives. There is a "Deep Archives" forum containing messages from 1988 to 2003, and all those, over 120,000 messages, come up first when one clicks on "Unread Messages". This is very impractical.

The fact that the desciption of the latest upgrades specifically mentioned "unread messages" instead of "unanswered messages" sent me on a "wild goose chase" (American expression meaning spending a lot of time and effort persuing the wrong thing).

It is still not going to work... because when a new registers all messages available prior to their registration are marked as read.

That's what I get. I'm using the "admin" user I set up when the FUD forum first went online. All those archived messages are dated before that. How else would I even see that the first message which comes up is dated 1988?

We're getting off on an irrelevant tangent here. I still do not understand why "unanswered messages" would be in descending order and "unread messages" would be in ascending order. I'm sorry, but that does not make any sense to me.

I logged in as a different user, clicked on "Unread messages" and I got messages dated:

June 12, 2005
July 12, 2005
June 6, 2005
June 10, 2005
July 3, 2005
July 23, 2005
August 6, 2005
Sept. 2, 2005
June 6, 2005
June 5, 2005
June 6, 2005
July 1, 2005

in that order.

I've very rarely logged in as this user, so there should be a lot of other unread messages within those dates, which are not in any kind of apparent order.

The ordering is by level forum->topic->message. This ensures that all unread messages from the same forum appear in one block, then arranged on per-topic basis.

That's not what I'm seeing. I'm getting some messages from one forum/topic, one from another, a couple from another. Many left out. Like I said, no apparent order at all.

Frankly, I think this feature needs some work. I'm seriously considering removing it as an option.

That's what I've done. I think the Message Navigator does a good job by itself, and that line is less cluttered now.

It works precicely as expected on all the tests I've conducted. So, I don't see a problem with it.

Hi,

Can you let me know how do I remove this option (Unread Messages)?

Thanks

you need to edit the selmsg.tmpl template and remove the link there.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. I figured it out just after posting the question. Anyhow, thanks very much for the reply.

Also, i have raised a question in the MYSQL section, regarding mysql performance being seriously affected and i have explained the scenario in that thread.

We have figured it out that, the problem was due to Unread Messages link which is causing to create such big temp files and almost crash the mysql server.

Any comments from you?

I suppose it all depends on how many unread messages you have. You can try putting LIMIT clauses to try to limit the number of examined entries.
