It has always been like that for me. They are the only posts I read.

"Bookmark" is still there. Never used it.

I don't know what has caused it, but the Forum has done something odd. In the past, I could click on "Unread posts" and it would show me a list of all the posts I had not read (I had a group of several from the same member of Forum staff to act as a 'bookmark'). Now that is no longer happening; clicking on "Unread posts" is only showing posts that have changed/been added today. My 'bookmark' no longer comes into view.
The behaviour you describe is not directly related to the changed software (which only changed the html formatting of a few elements), but is probably due to a purge of the forum cache which was performed a little later.

I have for several years advised people not to use the "Unread Posts" button, as the results of this search are often not predictable nor reproducible.

I don't recall that advice Mike but it is sometimes a bit odd - another thread this morning It dumped me in a month back - 14th July. Maybe an unannounced edit to a post.

It is rare and generally works well.
