Clearing unread posts
This is a recent thing, and I think it's a thing not just something I've imagined!
When I visit the site I'm logged in by my browser....I go to new posts and get 1/2 way through looking at posts then I get called away from my desk and come back...forget I was reading through posts and close the browser.
When I come back to it there's no posts under my new posts list
Is there some automatic "mark posts read" thing that I can turn off? :S

The new posts feature is based on the time you last access the forum, offset against the posts that have been made since that time. When you close your browser and come back, your last access time has changed. This is simply the way it works.
When I have a similar problem, I use the "Today's post" feature, which gives you the same style list, but based on the last 24 hours of posts EduGeek.net Forums - Search Results

Up until recently I always had to click the "mark forums read" button. But if you say so. Cheers.

It got switched back... The Today's posts search is what you need to see everything not previousy read

Must admit that's the way I've always preferred forums to work as it can take me ages to read a days posts when I'm trying to do many things at once. Also means I can refer back to a thread I have read but had a thought on later and wish to reread easily from the new posts list.

any way of getting the "todays posts" as a RSS ?

You could just use the rss feed for the site/forum?

I use the recent threads one on my iGoogle page.

What happend to the "Unread posts from last visit" or whatever it was called, feature?
When we first moved to vBulletin it was there and was great for what the OP is talking about - you could see what you hadn't read the last time..
