I always have the gold star (indicating unread posts , I assume) in “favorite places” even if I’ve “marked all read” or have actually read them all.

Ya I know about that. That is a little bug that for now I am willing to live with. Basically what is happening is the ‘new’ posts and comments is a very close approximation now (it is only possible for it to show more than there actually are). Apparently one of the threads in forums is ‘unpublished’, but I can’t figure out which one it is (I haven’t looked that hard).

Because these counts were so expensive to show on the load of the front page of the forum, I have rewritten the queries a little so I only have to join 2 tables instead of 5. This has improved the load time of the front page of the forum by about 2-3 seconds, but that is the unfortunate side affect. What I should do is run a bunch of queries to figure out what thread is causing the problem and just fix that thread, but I have not gotten around to it yet.

Thanks for the heads up. I will try to get to this when I have some free time.

Cheers…

As I said, “no big deal.” I can certainly live with this problem. Keep up the awesome work — the site seems to improve every day.

Thanks,
