Before, I think if you hit "mark forums read" and then "show new posts," it would only bring up posts that occurred after marking topics read. Now it seems to bring up all new topics, even if they've been marked as read. What does it mean by new then?

I realize that I can hit "view new posts" and then that little red arrow that brings up only new posts..but I guess I'm not understanding "view new posts."

does that make sense?

Mark topics/forums read makes all posts/threads in that forum (or on the board) appear as if they've been read.

View new posts shows the most recent posts on the board, whether they are read or not.

The red paper with the arrow icon takes you to the first unread post in a particular thread.

Yeah, I think I had all that down. On the old board, didn't "view new posts" only show recent posts that were new since posts had last been marked read? (like they were actually NEW since last reading) I guess that's the big difference.

This is hard to explain, but I'll just get used to the new way! I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something.

I guess I was hoping for an "unread posts" type thing.
