yep, I just noticed that. Awesome that they added that. I always found it difficult to keep up without that feature

I always use view new posts...BUT, if I do that and see new posts without reading them and check in later on to do so, they're all gone and only posts since that log in are present. So I only log in if I can sit and read

That probably doesn't answer the poll question, sorry

oh! ok, you are clicking on the "View NEW Posts" button. look for the one that says "view UNREAD posts". If you use this button the posts do not reset after each log in session

I use "View active topics". Unread posts can take you back to the ice age....

Pete that made me laugh, I guess the difference is I have read every post on this site. So the unread is never more than one page. I know I get a little obsessed about this stuff.

Thanks Frank....as many times as I've been on the forum, I never knew that. As much as I know, is as much as I don't know!
