Mark Forum Read error - Authorization Mismatch Error - Hawkeye-X - 2011-07-10

Yes, I am very aware of this sticky:

http://community.mybb.com/thread-93432.html

The problem is, it doesn't exactly tell me how to correct it - it assumes one is an expert on this. I certainly am not, and I'm still learning my way around it.

Can someone please explain to me what I must do to make this work? I have a mark forum read error with this error:

Authorization code mismatch. Are you accessing this function correctly? Please go back and try again.

admin panel --> templates --> Find Updated Templates (last tab on right side)

you might get some templates list . open each of them and find if there is a link for markread

example :
<a href="misc.php?action=markread&amp;fid={$fid}">{$lang->markforum_read}</a>

append &my_post_key={$mybb->post_code} like below
<a href="misc.php?action=markread&my_post_key={$mybb->post_code}&amp;fid={$fid}">{$lang->markforum_read}</a>

I hope that helps..
