Why can I not get rid of it? I keep changing my preferences by unchecking the relevant box, then saving changes, but the flag keeps appearing and when I look at my preferences again, the check box is back. I have been round this loop several times but my preference, it seems, does not want to be saved.
I am using Safari on an iPad, but have also tried to change the preference on a Mac running Firefox.
Any ideas?

3 years of weekending with the odd month here and there.
Don’t know if it’s the same situation but I click on the button for the blog or media or whichever flag comes up then chose “Mark read” and the flag goes.

Getting better month by month.
They go when clicking mark all read for me as well, but I don't want them in the first place. Why doesn't my preferences save properly? :( :rolleyes:

When I click ‘mark as read’ the flag disappears. That is not what I was referring to. In my preferences, there is an option to un-check the ‘show unread blogs’ marker. It is that function that will not save.

Also, and partly related, it is quite difficult to activate the drop-down menu from the little flags if using an iPad. I have to enlarge the view then press very accurately in order to get the drop-down. That is the main reason I was trying to switch them off altogether via preferences.

When I click Mark as Read the reminder disappears for me.
That's not it @Jim.
The ticked box (below) won't default to unticked after saving the change.
The next time preferences are viewed the box is again ticked.

Me too ... uncheck the show unread blogs, save, message says changes saved, then blog box reticks itself. Doesn't happen with other selections
