    Before you could click on your own username, then pull up "recent posts" and see only your posts with new replies indicated with a green arrow or something. This green arrow is now gone I guess the only thing to do is go thru the entire forum's "new posts"?

    I'm stumped in this one.
    I suggest posting this in the open issues thread.

    This sounds similar to functionality in Tapatalk that shows you the threads you have participated in and if it is 'new'.

    If the website had similar functionality it would be a big win for everyone.

    See post #1 in this thread for all the tips.

    I updated tip 11 - "Adding a video to your post"
    The tip now shows using the Filmstrip icon instead of the Youtube icon to embed videos in your post.
    The Filmstrip icon allows you to paste the full URL instead of just a part of it. It also allows you to easily post links from other video sites, like Vimeo.

    I started out helping a few people navigating the HF site, then decided to take it to the next level. Below is my take on an Unofficial Quick Start guide, adding visual references to many of the tips already on the site.

    Please PM me if you see any inaccuracies.

    Mods - move it or whatever as you will.
    Thanks

    Thanks for the NAV guide there TallPaul. I've been trolling around here for a while just a reading as much as possible. The Information Overload 1 and 2 section was a HUGE help!!!
