After many hours of searching no one with Vbulletin 4 has managed to fix this problem. I am guessing that they have done it deliberately to force forums to upgrade to VBulletin 5.

    I have changed the "Whats new?" button on the navigation bar to display unread posts since your last visit from all forums as a temp fix.

    VBulletin 5 has been around for 5 years now and is very stable but is nowhere near as flexible as VBulletin 4. My problem is that the current POI system is intertwined into the VBulletin 4 code and VBulletin 5 won't support it. The new POI system is stand alone and only uses the member database for access control.
    VBulletin 4 has now had its last release, so we do have to upgrade to a supported backend for security reasons.

    So the plan...

    I have installed a version of VBulletin 5 today on the server and have populated it with a backup copy of this forum. Once I have got it to perform more like this current site I will ask members to go and have a look and give me feedback. Then we can look at changing over from one to the other.

    I may do this on 1st of October or 1st of November depending how much time I get.

    I will keep you updated.
    I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about, but I am sure it will be wonderful once the gremlins have been sent packing.
    Well done!
