Your board's URL: http://www.kippenforum.nl/phpBB3/index.php
Version of phpBB3: 3.0.12
Was this a fresh install or a(n) update/upgrade/conversion (please be specific)? Update
If update, what package(s) did you use?
Did you use an automated wizard provided by your host to install phpBB?
MODs you have installed: ReIMG Image Resizer, Buttons menu, PM Notify & Guest Register bar, Annual Stars
When the problem started: sins update from 3.0.1 to 3.0.12
Your level of expertise (be honest): Good

Before the update we had a button "show new posts sins last visit" now it is "show new posts".
The difference is that 5,6 pages or more of new posts are displayed read and unread even if you come back the day after without login out. This is to much how can I change it back to "show posts sins last visit?"

No because al the topics I read are still there to.

If I click mark forums read the same posts are listed there only with the read icon.

That was before to but the difference now is as I leave the forum and come back even tomorrow without actually login out all these topcics keep standing there even as they are marked read.

I only want to see new posts from after my last visit as it was before.

That is what it is supposed to be already.

If it is not working correctly on your board since the update that suggests a problem with the update. How did you update and were there any problems?

Also, what is the session length set to?

3600 seconds.

I did a update from 3.0.1 to 3.0.12 with full package as explained HERE by you later on in my first topic.

I do not have any other problems on the forum.
All seems to work correctly except this.

It is not "Since last visit". It is "Since last login".
Try logging out, then log back in.

If I log out it is gone, but before it also was since last visit, I never had 6 pages of new posts.
Members brought it up to, that it was different then before.

Mind you the forum ran for a long time on 3.0.01 could it be that then it was different?

It could be that your autologin was not working properly before, and creating a new session.

Ok so if it works correct now the pages in that search result will keep building up until you really log out?
There is no limit?

It is strange cause I never log out of a forum anywhere.

Until you logout, or your session gets refreshed. Sometimes if I autologin here from a different computer, for instance, it creates a new session and my "New Posts" list reverts to what was new since my previous login.

Ok thanks. Then I'll tell the members that it is working correctly now and not before.

Edit: I set the time to refresh sessions to 1800 seconds, maybe that makes a difference to.
