    Thank you very much Adam :) In any case this is not really life threatening important, it would be nice if it worked as it should but of course there are more important things. Don't worry about it, I'm not biting my nails!

    Weirdest thing is it's now showing what newly-added-to threads haven't been read more correctly.
    Working properly in that respect, but looks odd as I've got so used to it not as cookies expire from the user end.
    I think I like it; just... different.

    Something has changed & I dont like it.
    I blame Za.
    What has changed for me is that the software is now not behaving in the same way as it did.

    Again, from the Portal.

    The new posts counter is still working correctly, but previously the board software (in effect) automatically assumed that once I logged out I'd read everything I wanted to and reset all the bolded thread titles to ordinary text. As of yesterday it doesn't.

    When I clicked on the new posts link, it offered me all the threads which had been updated since I clicked "mark forums read" yesterday and near the end a message that "The threads below have not been updated since your last visit but still contain unread posts."

    I'm sure there was a setting within vBulletin User CP to "automatically mark all threads read on exit" - which is what it used to do for me until yesterday - but I'm damned if I can find it! It certainly happens for me on another vBulletin forum I frequent, which uses version 4.0.3, although I can't find the option in my control panel there either, so maybe it could be a saved option from an earlier version which was never overwritten or removed as it was already in my profile? In which case - what did you do to break it? :p

    Wondering if this mark on exit thing might be a .Org type aftermarket plugin we never had:
    I'll have a shufti to see if there's a board-wide setting, just in case.

    Honestly suspect It hasn't broken here, just wasn't ever working as VB intended. :unsure:
    Mine's now become all accurate at leaving unread threads in Bold, whereas before it often expired/updated halfway through catching up if there were a couple of pages or more.

    I am also getting one where when I click on 'New Posts' - it doesn't just give me since last visit, it gives me the last 20 pages worth. This has happened on two different machines on two different connections.

    But do the quick links > mark as read thing first.
