I've been having a little trouble with this link in the last couple of days. When I first log on and go to the forum I can see unread topics which are marked orange. To view just those, I click on the 'view posts since last visit' link and it tells me no posts matched that search criteria. When I go back to the forum they're no longer orange coloured either.
Is this likely to be a forum thing, or a 'my PC' thing?

Sounds like the sort of bug caused by having your computer set to anything other then the current date.

Another way that you can be caught out here is if you open another browser window to any of the Puzzletome pages. This causes confusion, and so your PC just gives up and assumes there are no new posts.

One way round that ever happening is to do what I do. I set up a shortcut to the 'view new posts' page (http://puzzletome.com/forum/search.php?search_id=newposts) and that is always my first port of call to the site. (This explains my many lapses of memory in replying to various people as I very rarely actually browse the site. If there's no new flag then I forget to look. Embarassed )

Thanks for that - will give it a blast and see what happens.
