I checked the phpbb bug-tracker and this behaviour seems to be by design. If I understand it correctly, phpBB is counting new posts since your last logout, not your last visit. Stupid how it seems.


That should display *more* posts, not fewer. I don't have this problem on other phpbb forum sites like Folkvagn or Lemon.

What is the point of staying logged in? That makes no sense. And naturally there won't be new posts since your last logout, if you don't log out, d'uh. :?

The point is that you don't have to go through the login form every time. It works on every other PHPBB forum I frequent, and it worked on the old retrohackers forum.

so we should log off to be assured to get new posts instead of
just closing the bowser window.

easily done :!:

Hmm.. well, I'm not sure about that. This should work without logging off. I'm not sure what's causing the problem, if it's a cookie issue on the client or it's a session cache problem on the server...

@MagerValp: What browser do you use?

FF3. I doubt it's a browser issue, as it works just fine on the other PHPBB sites. The only difference that I can see is that on retrohackers the url is "search.php?search_id=newposts", and on the others it's "search.php?search_id=newposts&sid=b7237e03330ef10e63e3c22df40d5621" with a session ID.
