If you are wondering what happened to the "Unread posts: xx (list, clear)" at the top right of every page under your user name --- I removed it.

I've been focused on improving the performance/speed of the site, and I recently discovered this addon was a performance killer. Big time. So, it is gone.

I've received a bunch of questions about this. First, it seems no one reads this changelog thread But second, it seems this was quite popular. The problem is, it was running a very expensive query on every single page of the site, we're talking a million very expensive queries a month and growing (the site is growing rapidly).

If I can find a way to cut back some other queries (which I am working on), I'll consider adding this back. I've also asked my developer to look at the query to see if it could be optimized some how, but it doesn't look promising.

I have learned to live without it by going through today's posts via Quick Links. Same effect.

And I do read the futures.io (formerly BMT) changelog btw I am down with anything that optimizes performance for the forum.

It was discouraging to see how many post I had not read after I stepped down as a Mod.

So, I am glad it is gone.

It needs to be run in real time otherwise it would show inaccurate and confusing results.

However, I've asked the developer to rewrite the query so it works only on the forum home page. That will greatly reduce the expense of the query overall. Once that is done, I'll re-instate it.

This is done. So on forum home page only, this is back.

If you click just on "new posts" on the navbar, does it also say no new posts? Could be the new post count is wrong after making some changes to the code.

Let me know.

Hi Mike, at the time the widget at the top right showed unread posts the 'New posts' on the navbar was indicating no new posts.

Thanks for the site!

I have duplicated the problem with a test account. I believe I know the issue and will speak to the developer for a fix.
