It seems that the best way of finding new posts in all forums when you log in is to make sure you are on the home page (B-G Forums) and click on the "New Posts" header along the top blue menu bar, but I'm a bit puzzled as to what constitutes a New Post.:confused:

If I've been away for a few hours, then click on New Posts, they appear to be new threads or those with new replies (and the thread titles shown in bold).

However, just now the search for new posts brings up two threads (the last two that I read) which have no new posts (and titles not bold) :confused:


When these forums become very active, the New Posts option may be a bit overwhelming, but for the time being, I wonder....
How new are New Posts?
Will it list *all* threads with new messages that I have not read?
Will it only list threads with new messages within the last so many days?
Is there a limit on the number of New Posts that will be listed?

'scuse me for all the questions :o

Q How new are New Posts?
A All that have been posted since you last logged off but if a new post is added whilst you are logged in, then clicking on New Posts will list that too.

Q Will it list *all* threads with new messages that I have not read?
A Yes, and of course, on a very busy board, that list may become long and cumbersome

Q Will it only list threads with new messages within the last so many days?
A No.... all new posts

Q Is there a limit on the number of New Posts that will be listed?
A Theoretically no, and it could go onto two pages.
