Anyone else having trouble with the "New Posts" function?

    I always read this board by clicking on the New Posts link to see everything that has been updated since my last visit. Today when I click it, it says there are no new posts, even though I can see a lot of new posts since my last visit. The forum icons that normally have different colors for sections with new posts are all also just grey, which is how they look when there aren't new posts, but again, there are actually a lot.

    I've logged out and back in and it didn't make a difference. I'm just wondering if it's affecting anyone else but me.

    Hmm, I think it's working OK now. Although it only shows as having about 5 new posts total since last night when I posted this.

    Still, that at least matches what I see in the actual forum now, where last night I could tell there were new posts that weren't showing up when I clicked "new posts".

    I don't personally have the problem, but the way it's configured currently, it's browser session based- ie. if your browser's cookies have cleared or something similar happened, it will not know what posts you've read. This will change in the future.
