For some reason, it shows that I have a PM "1 new message" but when I click on it there actually isn't any new messages at all.
I've deleted all read messages in my inbox and outbox, so there is not one single message in there, but when I got back to the Index page of my forum it's STILL indicating that I have 1 new private message!
Does anyone know what the go is with this and how to fix it?
So all your PMs has been deleted and it still show you as one new private message, it can be some temporarly issues unless you have installed a mod, then you'll need to ask the author who released this mod.
However, try with a different browser and see what you got, also clean your cookies if you're not able to switch browser.
Had the same problem after restoring my database with bigdump.php. I solved it by entering the database via phpmydamin.
Go to the table phpbb_privmsgs_to , and do a search on user_id, where the number you search for is the number of the user who has these 'ghost-pm's'. In the table wich shows up, find the message ('s) wich have the value 1 by both pm_new, and pm_unread, deleting these will fix this problem.
Be aware that if you are doing this on all users on the board, there is the chance you will delete pm's that are genuine.
