How do you mark inbox items as read?

I am sure I am being dumb but can't see how to do it. Nearly all the comments/replies I have received into my inbox have been responses to two forum threads I started. If I view those threads, the replies all stay as "unread", even if I click on each individual reply on the "Unread" page (i.e. loading each of the two forum threads multiple times) then they still don't get marked as read. Most odd. Help! It's hard to monitor interaction at the moment.

Click the body of the message when viewing your inbox. The gray border around the message should disappear, and when the page is refreshed, it will move to "read."

Brilliant! Thank you so much. I'm going to go ahead and say, er... that is not intuitive! ;-)

I agree--when I first joined this site I only found out how to do that by randomly clicking everything :P

You can click, but you can also respond to the message.

I wish there was a "mark as read" thing, it took me some time to figure it out myself. n.n

The "click to mark unread" behavior certainly isn't as intuitive as I thought it would be. I'll see if I can make that operate in a more intuitive manner. Reddit, for instance, just marks it as read when you see it through your inbox view. I may switch it over to mark it that way.
