Could you explain that in english please?

The blue checkbox means that there is a new post since your last visit. If you go to view it and then click the back button the browser just loads the page out of cache and it will say you haven't read it. To refresh you have to click on the actual forum link after you have read the post and reload the page.

In order for it to say that you have "read" that forum, you have to read all the threads with new posts.

Yeh, yeh, yeh... doesn't matter. In that situation, you can use the search system of this forum. Simply search for the author "*", and in the options specify "Search previous 1 day" (or more), then hit Search. And you'll get almost the same functionality as "view posts since last visit".

I found that happens to me too. If I just go to one forum and open a message there and then go back to the main index it makes all forums read. What I do is open all forums at the same time.
