    New post since last visit

    I've been on vacation for a week so I apologize if this has already been covered. On the old forum when I logged in I could see how many new post there were since my last visit. I can't find that info on the new forum. Am I looking in the wrong place or is that information no longer available.

    There's a "New Posts" button near the top. It automatically brings up new threads since your last visit. While it does not provide you a count, you could look at the number of pages and do some quick math.

    I thought about that but it always shows 1 of 17 pages, no matter how many new post there are.

    The forum is a very busy place. Note that 'New Posts' includes new posts since your last visit and unread posts. You'll see a horizontal bar that separates new from unread that reads The threads below have not been updated since your last visit but still contain unread posts.

    You can "Mark all forums as read" but use this with caution because it's a one way trip.

    Yes, I know about the horizontal bar. On the old forum you had a count beneath your avatar, so if you were more than one page behind, you had an idea of how much catching up you had to do with out scrolling through the pages.

    I think it used to look like what it does today on WhiteBlaze.
    Here's a comparison.

    Ahh. This is a known issue, it's on our list of things to address. Probably this weekend.
