"New post" icon not working

The forum was running fine for some time. No major problems noted.
Suddenly the "New Post" icon quit working. Users are reporting no new/unread posts (which there are).
Did some testing. The posts are there sure enough, but marked as read. I haven't changed anything in the configuration that should have affected this, so?

Any sure fire fix for this?

TIA, Yo-

hmmm, Ok. Did the mod and it seemed to work, but just once.

I mean, after installing the mod, I did a test post and the New icon was as expected. Then, tried a couple more and it's not working again?

I tried flushing the cookies from my browser, but that didn't do anything either.

I also noticed there were a couple errors generated in my apache error log about undefined variables on a couple lines after the installation of the mod was completed.

Any other ideas/suggestions?

You don't "install" autocookies.
It is a utility that you run once and then delete.

and be aware that you can't test whether this system is working from the same account that you are posting from.
you have to post from one account, log out, then log in with another account in order to see if that account has new posts.

Gee guys....

Brf....
Perhaps the wrong choice of wording, I ran the MOD and deleted it as per the instructions. Thank you for correcting me so delicately.

Lumpy....
I'll try it with another account as you suggest and let you know what I get. Nice tip!
