    How do you tell when There's a new reply to a post without having to remember the count of the last reply? Oil Well

    Upper right hand corner of the main page. Right below your name is the "View New Posts" button.

    It shows all the new posts form the time you were on last

    Armorer, I understand that, but then we have to memorize or keep notes to what the last count was...on the old site you could breeze throught it, all the new replies would be a different color or else have the word "NEW" in front of them. Wish there was a way to just scan down and know whether or not there was a new reply. Oil Well, maybe it'll come...thanks for your reply.

    Manges it is easy when you scan down a list of messages new ones look like an open letter and viewed one's look like a closed envelope

    On the first page when you come to the forums, in the upper right corner is the message:

    Welcome back, Big Dog
    View New Posts

    Click on "View New Posts", and it'll bring up only those threads with new posts & replies. Then you don't have to wade through old news. You still have to scroll down through that thread, though. Hope this helps.

    I usually look over in the right hand corner and see if there are any new posts for thew current day, and the time. I haven't really got a good system yet myself though.
