I was just wondering if anyone else found that their menu images were showing that there were unread topics even though if you click on that menu, all of the threads show themselves as 'read'. Whilst this isn't a huge problem, it is just slightly annoying.
If anyone has trouble understanding what I am trying to say, just ask.

This is because the "new" icon shows when there are posts in the forum that haven't been approved yet. Unfortunately this is a phpbb limitation.

We have to approve new posts because even with the best captcha plugins we can find for phpbb, bots are still coming in and posting. We spend a lot of time deleting these spam posts.

As a result sometimes you'll see the "new" icon even if there isn't a new post.

Thank you very much for letting me know.

Bother these bots.
