Normally I have to hit the page reload to get the new post flags to clear. Then, for the past couple of weeks, the flags were being automatically cleared after thread exit. Now, I notice that it back to the previous behaviour. What's up??? I liked the auto clearing. I'm using Chrome on a PC.
The "back" button returns you to any given page in the state that it was in when you left it (without reloading). The gray bar at the top of this screen has a tab to "Axiom Forum > Updates". If you use that one to go back to the forum home page, it will reload and the unread button will be cleared.
The problem with doing this is when there are multiple unread threads within a given "major folder"...in which case the flag clears "erroneously" because you haven't read everything there is (that's new) within.
