    New posts has only unread threads.
    Since you get redirected to the thread after posting a new post, it isn't unread any longer.

    Recent posts might a better alternative.

    It looks a bit different , mind you a lot of BB's and Forums do and some are very odd to get around. I also notice that a number of members here do not have pictures in their Avatars when they used to do so.

    And I see my long lost signature has made a comeback :)

    Ok, After posting I went back to the home page and clicked on New Posts in the header and this one did not show up, it did however when I clicked on the recent posts text above the displayed threads window.

    Probably prety much the same as Chasm wrote about above.

    Also there is no location information in the window where the posters ID is shown.

    New definitions:

    New Posts = Posts since your last visit and post. Therefore, if your post was the last one in a thread, there is no "New Post."

    Recent Posts = More like the old "new posts". Just the threads with the most recent posts. It will include the one you just posted in.

    Note one subtlety too. When looking at the recent posts, there is a slight break between those since your last time looking and those that are recent but not since then.

    Hopefully location is coming back to the ID box.

    The font is hard on my eyes. I would prefer something sans, like... Arial.

    I'm noticing that many member images seem to be missing. Also how do you get to the last post in a thread? I'm sure it's just me not finding it, but I seem to only be able to come into the start of the threads where I then click to the last page.

    Member images? Do you mean avatars or attached images in posts?

    On the main forum index page, click the time post on the far right side of the page, under the member's screen name that last posted...

    Most saved links and bookmarks will no longer be relevant. Sorry folks, new platform! It also kills inbound link traffic for awhile.

    Yes, a 70 k JPEG, 700 x 506 p, named Fall.
  18. Okay here.

    Comcast quickly received a confirmation email.



    Love the Thumbnails.

    Do not need to side-slide to read posts with oversized pics.



    Whew!

    Attachment (More Options) took some exploring.

    Multi attachments and Attachment Manager still a challenge.



    Old attachment and or Smiley caused security Oops.

    Saved screenshot - will post when the dust settles.


    P.S.- New YF is much better.


    P.P.S.- Avatar seems to like 96 x 96.

    Try it again please Lars. Image attachments are working for me. Here's an example...
