I dont know the phpbb at all (familiar with mybb) but i think most of the board scripts are close to each other.
i heard that the admin cp of phpbb is quite a small chaos
so back to the problem... all of the posts are in the database right?
so phpbb isnt able to get the correct post count by synchronizing?
There is no problem with the post count, it changes as old topics get pruned etc but I resynced it a while ago and it's close to correct.
For example you're showing 811 posts, I click your profile and search your posts (I have access to all forums remember, so may see some posts you can't), I get 'Search found 780 matches'. It means the post sync is out by 31 posts. Which would generally be caused by pruning over the last few months.
