I noticed after the most recent upgrade that we lost the button for most recent posts. When I click on the "Unread Posts", it is only for that main heading, not the entire forum. I've only been getting the new General Forestry posts lately and wondering why nobody was doing any woodworking. :D I also liked the other unread topic option because it was on every page, and I could just jump to the new posts without having to use the back button. Is there any way to get that button back? Sorry if this has already been covered, I've only been getting part of the forum for a long time now.

I believe the functionality you want is right under your name in the upper left, when you're logged in.  It is a link called:

"Show unread posts since last visit."

Hiding in plain site. If you don't have those links, it probably means you have the upper part of the page closed. Open it up using the little arrow in the upper right corner of the page next to the Find-A-Database link.

Oh sure, Jeff.  Provide pretty pictures and a better description.  ;) ;D

Let us know if that isn't what you were looking for, Dave.

I've got it now. The main header was collapsed for some reason, clicked that little button in the upper right corner. Thanks. It helps being on a real computer instead of the phone. :)

No worries.  I hate browsing on my phone sometimes.

I rarely browse a specific forum, I just click the unread posts link to see what's new.

The "most recent posts" is my FF homepage.  I always start there.

I always start with New Replies to my posts, and then if I have time I look at the unread posts. I rarely browse the topics by forum unless I'm looking for something specific.
No matter how conventional wisdom may fly in the face of radical thought, it's still the most popular type.
