Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 454686
Mark all as read does not mark all articles
Last modified: 2008-07-15 13:36:50 EDT
Description of problem:
"Mark all as read", either from the tool bar or a feed's context menu does not
mark all articles as having been read.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right click a feed and choose "Mark all as read"
The feed in the list is no longer bold, and does not show a count of unread
messages, however, the list of articles still shows some unread articles. By
unread, I mean the entry still shows in bold. These "unread" articles also have
a different icon (piece of paper and a pencil) in the "Read Status" column. I
could not find this icon in the documentation so I don't know what it means. If
this is proper behaviour, I think it's not very intuitive.
All Articles are marked as read.
I am unable to recreate this on my system. Can you include a screen shot that I
can send to the developers. Maybe they can identify the icon and what it means.

Screenshot of strange icons
Here's a screenshot with the icons circled in red.
Sent the screenshot upstream and this was the response.
The strange icon is the icon indicating "updated" items.
In 1.4 Mark-All-Read doesn't reset this state.
I plan to change this for 1.5.
So we have to wait for 1.5 for a fix.
