That worked! Thanks!!
That was it! Thanks.
I had changed my email password a few months ago and didn't realize that screwed things up.
The 'new' tag is shown on any discussion that I previously read but there is a new message. This is slightly different from the previous version in that I would see 'new' messages for all posts whether I had read them or not.
The highlighting problem was just a misunderstanding by me. The highlighted posts were the ones that I have previously read. I changed the CSS on them to darken the color but otherwise this problem is fixed (although it was never actually a problem).
Hope this helps someone in the future.
Ah yes, I did not notice that the word FeedDiscussions was a link. But I found a copy of the plugin on my computer so all is good. That was what I was using. Magpie doesn't seem to work on my system.
Ok, for those of you following along, I ran into my first problem. When I enabled BotStop and Registration Restriction plugins and switched from "Basic" to "Approve" in the application process, I got a bonk.
That was a problem with BotStop which was fixed right here.
Oh yes, the forum I'm trying to restore is http://chemistscorner.com/cosmeticsciencetalk
