Otherwise, every post you haven't read would remain New forever.
That's actually my point. As it is now, like I said in my original post, "New Posts" shows what *I* just posted (that day) even though I've technically already read them, and then a few other "new" posts. Then "Unread Posts" shows everything, but sometimes not stuff that I saw under "New Posts".
"New Posts" should show every newly posted reply or thread, no matter when you return to the forum, be in a few hours, or even weeks. The forum should remember what's new and what's not, for at leas 3-6 months or maybe a bit less, like on some paid forums. But pbpBB doesn't seem to have this basic forum feature and it's extremely annoying. Just saying.
If I am completely insane and this is NOT how it works, please feel free to correct me. I'm simply used to stuff like Xenforo which has a different system...
