post counts in side panel not updating - Vanilla 3.2
I'm using Vanilla 3.2 on Linux, after having migrated my forum several month s ago from v2.2 on Windows to v2.8.3 on Linux, and then successive updates to 3.2 on Linux, all with no problems. Overall things are fine, though I recently realized that the post counts next to each of my categories shown in the side panel are not updating when a new post is created.
If I visit
/dba/counts, and update all the options shown there, the post counts are updated correctly, but then any subsequent new discussion created again does not update the appropriate Category count.
Suggestions at what I should be looking at to fix? Thanks in advance.
