Would it be possible to be able to see if there are any new posts in the a subsection from the main page?

yea i would like that too if possible because it does require me to click every single forum thread to figure out if i've read the entire forum and I do it everytime i visit the forum.

If it's too much work I could always create a greasemonkey extension to do it, but it wouldn't be anywhere near as efficient as it'll need to make one AJAX request per subsection.

For now I've simply subscribed to the RSS feed

Yah, I'll see what I can do about that tonight. I was working but then I changed something and broke it. I was just too lazy to debug so I removed that section. I'll see if I can get it working again tonight. It shouldn't be too difficult.

Anytime, and keep the bugs coming... even if I can't fix some (or won't for security reasons) it's good to know what you guys want, so I can prioritize.

This must be a thread-counting bug pointed out by the "Unread Posts" feature.

For example in CAPTCHA I see 0 threads yet 1 New one :P
Apparently the Announcement-Type threads (in this case "Rules") is not taken into account.

Easy enough... I removed it as an annoucement. That's an odd bug though. Thanks, Legionnaire, I wasn't seeing that.

Its odd the (new thread) feature doesnt work 100% of the time. I refresh the main page and I see no need threads. Does it have to do with mark all as read link?

It would be interesting to know how a thread is no more marked new. Does it happen the first time you login? Does it happen when you click that link?

It's supposed to happen once you click a link. If you just hit back on your browser it isn't refreshing the page. Trix, when you go to the main page are you clicking on a link to go there or are you hitting back on your browser? I haven't seen this happen.
