Thanks. So, for the time being, should I go back to the older version? Or is the fix coming soon?Hehe... I see the issue...
When you're on the forum home page, hover over your "Home" tab.
So, the way this works is it looks for the phrase What's New? (the phrase, not the English words) and adds on to the end of that the unread posts counter. 1.0.8 introduced a hard limit on the number of replacements it was allowed to make. I set this to 1 because usually you only have 1 per page.
As it happens, you have 2 and so it's adding the unread count to the very first What's New it finds which happens to be on your home tab.
I will see if this can be improved.
