    I currently show 6 new posts, but only 2 show when I select "New Posts".

    I would expect perhaps the inclusion of 4 other posts that have been updated since I last read them, but nothing shows below the 2 unread posts.

    Maybe its me, maybe not?

    Likely counting the total of the unread posts in the 2 unread threads you see?

    If it's not as Steve says, hit 'Mark Forums Read'. That should fix it.

    I'll have to pay closer attention.

    I typically mark forums read after I read what interests me.

    Thanks all!

    I'd start to worry if the mboard divided by zero! :D

    It's an apparent "flaw" in the plugin. I had the same problem with the 1.5.x version and actually stopped using it. lol

    The forum just said 3 new posts, and clicking showed only two topics.
    However, since I'd been keeping current with both of the topics, one topic had 1 new post and the other one had two new posts. So 3, I think, is correct
