broke the WF App
 
i think I broke my forum app on the iphone. I received a push notification of a thread I was subscribed to. I opened the app, viewed the thread, then closed the app. however, I still have the number badge next to the app's icon.

I can't get it to leave :rofl: I've unsubscribed from the thread, reinstalled the program, rebooted my phone, shut off notifications, flipped em' back on, swore at it, tried logging out...what gives? it's really f'ing up my program here :rofl: and driving me crazy.

Thanks for the report - we'll look in to it.

I got word from the App developer that they were going to try and repair some issue that were related to older versions of the iPhone software. I am not sure if this is related but an update should be out soon so lets see if that fixes it.

Have you tried hitting the button on the right top corner and then hit mark all as read? That might do it

ahhh this might be what they're talking about. I'm running 4.0 still and I believe Apple is on 4.0.2 so I'm 2 updates behind.

yeah I tried that. thing is I'm not even subscribed to the thread anymore :rofl: the icon is just sitting there with a red "1" next to it like I have an unread message. I might have something to do with Forum Runner's push service. of all the apps I've ever had, only 1 has been able to get push to work correctly on a consistent basis. I guess it's difficult.

thanks everyone

they are going to fix the iphone software, eh? that must mean that they are switching the phone's service provider. :D

lol seriously. you just got a new Droid didn't you? how you likin' it so far. I'm considering a Droid next summer when my contract expires if Verizon keeps that unlimited data deal going.

FYI this doesn't effect your phone AT ALL.........If you saw all the "RED" numbers on my phone, you might slip into cardiac arrest.
ALL the red numbers are just notifications of anyone that has responded to any posts that you started or posted in, they will eventually go away, but I ALWAYS have them on WF and FB.
I am so confused as why you are worried about it??

ParaCAD 08-27-2010 09:38 AM

i've had that happen with other apps...its possibly an iphone thing....should fix it self...

they're supposed to clear. the WF app is the only program on my iPhone that doesn't clear it's badges when they've been read. it kind of eliminates the function of being alerted in the first place

go to the WF app and click the Mark all as red...i think there's an option for that, right?

I now have the Evo, soooooo...lol


*cough* waiting on the Android WF app *cough*

GroundHawg 08-27-2010 10:53 AM

I just tried it. it didn't work

GroundHawg 08-27-2010 10:54 AM

oh well it's no thing. I'll just need to update to the current software I guess. I was just curious if there was a quick fix. besides, I only have push for a month anyway :p

Seems I can't get the subscribed thread notifications to go away now either. I have to unsubscribe from the thread for it to disappear. However there are some I would like to remain notified too IF there is a new post.

I don't see this app in the App Store...?

I believe you go to www.wranglerforum.com on your iPhone and it should ask if you want to download the app.
