Inbox message count modification

Instead of showing the total number of messages in the user's inbox, I think it would be more useful and intuitive to only show the number of unread messages in the inbox.

    That's what it does.

    Must be some weird bug then. I was fooling around with the conversation feature last night, creating, deleting, and adding to existing conversations, and right now my Inbox is still showing there's an unread message there when there isn't (I look at my inbox and there's no "New" notification and there are indeed no unread messages).

    You're right though, normally, it does only show unread messages. Thank goodness.

    Wish I could reproduce the issue, haven't been able to yet.

    EDIT: Figured it out. As user A (I'm admin, don't know if it makes a difference), create a new conversation with user B. On user B's account, open the conversation.

    Back on user A's account, add at least one new message to the conversation.

    Go back to user B's account and delete the conversation (the conversation should only show one message in it, since you didn't reload the page).

    Go to the main forum page under user B's account and it'll say there's an unread message in the inbox when there's not.

    By the way, a few tweaks that'd be cool to see: the ability to disable the timestamp that is displayed next to each user in "in this conversation", and also maybe the ability to prevent anyone from adding users to the conversation.

    One other thing I noticed, if I delete a conversation as an administrator, I'm taken to the URL /dashboard/home/filenotfound

    I noticed a similar problem, and I logged it here. Would love to know a quick fix for that one.

    Aha, that looks like the better place to report bugs. Thanks. :-)
