and

Are just threads with email notification affected?
Are they still marked as "unread" when you enter the homepage after you received the notification?

I'm pretty certain that usually when I get a notification of most threads and then visit the site, they are still shown under the "unread posts" category.

It also wouldn't really make sense for them to be automatically marked as "read" upon receiving the notification, as the email doesn't contain the content of the new posts.

I think I know what's up. People who semi-regularly use "Mark all threads read" button on "View unread posts" page don't have this problem, because the value "lastmark" in the database for their user gets updated with the time of clicking the button. That value is used in query for unread posts, and that query is limited to 500 results for performance reasons. You don't see all 500 threads from the query on the list because it's probably filtered later in the code, to be honest I was too lazy to analyze this further.

tl;dr Try clicking "Mark all threads read" and check if everything works correctly

How it works is if you browse the forum for a while, and someone posts something new, you will not see it in the new posts sections because you are online, so the forum assume you saw it.

That's why I always check the today's posts section rather than the new one.

I just use the "unread" section.. And sometimes the "today new" because I thought the "view new" is only something new in the last hour or less...

I tried it with the new suggestion, still doesn't work.

And I don't think it's because of being online, as it's consistently the same threads having the issue, while others work. For example the "35mmforum sales" always seems to work, but "films on ebay" doesn't.

Could it perhaps have something to do with the age of the thread?

Also, when I am on the main page, it shows a number on the Unread Posts link, for example (15), but when I actually click it, it's much fewer posts. Something definitely isn't working right there I think.

That may be that there 15 new posts in 10 threads. And you just see the 10 threads, and of course this seem to be less than the 15...

That actually makes sense. And I'm happy to report that right now I'm seeing films on ebay in the unread posts, for the first time I can remember.

Weird stuff.
