I've a sneaking feeling that it's possibly to do with the way the 'Unread Posts' page is now being cached.  I may be wrong, why should today be any different?

I think its all done in the database, so should be browser independent. But I'll take a look.

like every change on any site it takes time to adjust to it.

so far all I can say i'm not keen on is the new/no new posts icons.they are a bit 'samey' bar the colour which may be awkward to distinguish to some people


and maybe the header bars are a bit too dark on the blue

I personally like the stark contrast. I'm sure me other half wouldn't agree though... but we'll take a look at it. All suggestions are welcome, even if we do just ignore them  :P

Unfortunately, we can't adjust the theme to every individual taste.  If we make the menu bars lighter, some people won't like that either.  It does also take a while to get used to changes. 

The new posts icons can be changed, though.  What would you suggest, Rod?  They would obviously have to fit in with the colour scheme, so banana yellow would be out of the question!  ;D

What I'll do is make the 'new' icon more of a green colour, like on the old board, yes?
