I noticed for a period of a few days, the "New Unread Posts" button was missing. But it came back a couple days ago. Not sure if that had something to do with this or just a general customization change.

Not only was it gone for those few days, but when it came back it returned to the second spot. It used to be the first spot where Forum Rules now is:

It also used to say just "New Posts" without the "Unread" part which showed up a few days ago when it returned.

Here is an example from the Wayback machine. But this is not exact because it is not from a logged-in user:

Notice that Rules was on the upper line, and did not say Forum Rules.

In the end, everything works fine, I am glad to have the New Posts button back, and don't mind my silly noticing of every little detail lol...

Oh... the "New Unread" link on the main navigation bar didn't change. That is the same is the "New Unread Posts" on the secondary navigation bar below the primary navigation bar.

What has changed is I now have both the main and secondary bars floating as you scroll down the page: it used to be just the main bar. When I made that change a couple of days ago, I also added "New Unread Posts" to the secondary nav bar just to make it easier to find things. :)
