 New Messages Variable Only Showing 0
Hi! So I've been using a custom userbar, and have it set to show how many new messages a user has. I've gotten it coded as such, using the variable listed on the board wrappers skinning page:
<!-- |new_msg| -->   new messages
but it only shows zero. I tried switching it out for "<!-- |msg_total| -->" but that's been displaying the total number of messages in the inbox, not just the new/unread ones.

Not sure if I'm using the wrong variable, or if there's something else wrong.
Unhide the regular user linksbar. What does the new messages text say? remember that the messages are considered "seen" even if they have not been entered into. viewing the message index clears that variable, including on the default userlinksbar
