I'm getting a lot of 'new post' reflections on the site when there is in fact no new post - anyone else?

I haven't seen that (except when I use Tapatalk, which does mark things as read but somehow the forum website thinks I haven't).

What I have seen is that the "new" buttons don't always take you to the actual new posts.  Annoying and I haven't figured it out yet.

I noticed something that may be related - the Glass Joe icon used to go back to normal if you went into a sub forum with new posts and then didn't read them.  You could go back to Home and he wouldn't look punched. 

But now, he stays on punched, so when i come back to the forum it looks like there are new posts and I click latest thread only there are new posts - because the new posts are in the other threads I chose not to visit.

The older version worked differently, and highlighted new posts with bold black where as this new version marks that as latest.  I think this might be it and why I was confused at first.  the new version just works a little differently.

Old browsing habits die hard - I am just so used to the older version working that way I didn't think about it.
 
Hope it helps.

I think I have the "new" links working now.  Found an official fix from the SMF developers and applied it.  Seems to work for me now.

Yeah, I do think it works differently in that regard.

Ok, got it, but I think it should be places there too:

You should see an Outbox button there now, too.

Testing this out a bit.  If you click on the board name to view the board, then it reset Glass Joe back to normal.  But if you click on Glass Joe it'll just show you the threads with unread posts.  Doing this does not reset Glass Joe.

New issue - Spoilers don't seem to be working, it always says:

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

This is a test - to see if you also have this issue:

Spoiler
Spoilers are fun.  Having things spoiled is not fun.

I can see it, but I can see everything ;D

It does look like there are some permissions around it somehow.  I'll figure it out.

boye

I can't see it either. Very odd...

UglyJoe

Spoilers should be fixed, now.

You say that, but if I do a quick test then:

Spoiler

Yes.  Yes they do - thank you :)

I feel that I speak for everyone when I say that you should bring back video embeds. I mean, who would want to have to click on the URL to watch this?:  https://youtu.be/dQw4w9WgXcQ
