The New Posts section of the forums is the most used / read of the whole site. 90% of the return users live by seeing what is new. So here's a tip on how to use the "New" New Posts Search. Notice I put Search at the end... When the New Posts button is selected it takes a snapshot of the current new posts that you have not seen since your last log on. (Cookies are important they store all the info as to what you have read and haven't read. Make sure they are enabled. By default they are enabled in your browser). The New Posts that are displayed are ONLY the new posts at the time you did the "New Posts Search". More posting is going on outside of your "New Posts Search" that won't be displayed until you click "New Posts" again. Alright... The tip. Select "New Posts", read through that list of posts until you reach the end. Then click "Mark Forums Read". It will clear out that "New Posts" thread. Select "New Posts" again and you will get all the latest postings that were going on while you were viewing the previous "New Posts Search". If you select "Recent Posts" it will display the New Posts along with the old posts that you are watching or have participated in.
