Your style is very out of date and that will likely cause problems. You have made a copy of the prosilver style and named it prosilver2. That style shows as being 3.0.4 and may not have been updated since then. A copy of a style is, in effect, a 3rd party style and it would not be updated by any of the standard update methods and would, therefore, need to be updated manually.

Here are the style changes for prosilver

Hmmmm.
When I tested with your test user, it seemed to work fine.
Each time I clicked the "unread" icon on a topic, it took me to the next page.

It worked as intended for me too, but I thought I may be misunderstanding the problem described. Could just be that the members don't understand what an unread post is?

However, the style used is still very out of date and will likely result in problems.

Is there a resource you could point me to for updating the theme without losing my own modifications to it, or is it easier to just use the new theme and try to make the same template/css adjustments?

there would be hundreds of changes to make manually. it would be easier to just edit a current version of the style with your changes and use that.

code changes, however, as Robert said, it is probably quicker and easier to make your style changes to the current version rather than updating to old one.

Thanks so far. I've updated the style to the latest version now, but the problem remains. Here's some comments from my Moderators:
if I search for something (a name perhaps) and click to jump to post that shows up, I get sent elsewhere
My orange button [meaning 'view first unread post' icon] only works on a few of the newer threads
Jump To Last Post doesn't work at all, I get taken pages back
This is sounding more like a database issue to me, what do you think?

Has anybody seen an issue like this before? Surely someone has a suggestion?

This seems to be happening on the longer threads - some of them have 500 pages or more. Is there a working limit for number of posts/pages in a thread before they get unstable?
