Jess, I was wondering how I can tell if there is new messages in a thread? Does the little box next to the thread turn a certain color, or ?

 

Thanks, Dorian

Gosh, I have to say I don't know. Anyone figured this out? Hmmm... If I come up with anything, I will certainly let you know!

Okay Dorian! I think I figured it out for you. I enabled a newsbox at the top of the main forum page that looks like this:

Most recent news: Grand Opening Events - 2007-11-22


If you click on "View unanswered posts", then hit go on the next screen (you can of course, change the parameters of the search) it should show you the posts that you have not replied to. I much prefer just clicking on the "Your active threads" link and glancing down the list at the date and person of the most recent post, which generally lets me know if I have seen it yet or not. Of course, this will not show you any threads you have not already posted to. And then, you also have the "posts active today" link which will let you see the posts that have been added today. Clear as mud?

LOL, sort of. Thanks Jess.

 I also figured out that the blue box next to the threads change to a darker blue if there is a new message in that thread. :)

OKAY! I just stumbled upon a great way to get this. If you hit the search button (on very top left of my screen... some skins show it in different places), then you have the option to click "search since my last login". There you go, I knew there had to be a way to do it.
