Posts Since Last Visit

02-29-2012 01:09:59

I apologize if this question is stupid. When I come into the forum it gives me the ability to show the posts since last visit. Say I have 5 threads with new posts. I select one and go to that thread. I can't seem to find how to get back to the rest of the unread threads.

One way I found is to use the back button but then it does not take out from the list the ones I read.

The other way is all the way through the Home screen and selecting again show new threads.

Tried Recent Posts in Community Forum menu but it gives a much longer list of threads.

Is this me or is this intended to function that way? Or am I missing some button and its right their for me?

Other then this minor issue the new look is awesome! Thanks for that

Try that.
I added a link to the community forum menu item.

There are two flavors of "New Posts"

1. Active topics - these are what are listed on the front page and the recent posts link. these are items in order from  most recent post. for example this post will move right to the top of the list as soon as I hit Post.

2. the next flavor is user dependent. after you login it can tell what you have not seen since you were last logged in. this is what the new menu item does. it does not represent any activity or popularity like the above does. Many people like this format and now you have it!

Thanks for the input.
