    Question How to distinguish new posts from already-read topics w/ followups I haven't read yet

    Since the the forum got its big update recently, I've found it frustrating to visit the site, and in fact I don't come by as much. Because it's just not so easy to avoid re-reading stuff I've already read before.

    I believe that what is happening is that anything new in a topic -- a topic I haven't read at all, or even just some followups to an existing topic - make the topic show as boldface (and bump it up to the top of the list). I would like to have some way to distinguish which topic is new -- unread by me at all -- and which topic just has new replies.

    And, ideally, some way on the topics that I've already read with the new replies for me to click and jump to the newest replies.

    Otherwise, I find myself re-reading topics that I've already read before. And it's hard to get to the newly posted stuff, where there might be something newly-posted that I'd be interested in reading.

    It seems like the old forum didn't have this problem, though I can't recall exactly what I did to recognize the posts with just new replies and how to get directly to those new replies.

    Is there something I am missing? Or can this be a suggestion for some sort of improvement? Thanks.

    There are three different forum appearance optuions. What seems to be the issues for most users is the "folder/file" icon.. Located to the left of each post/topic.. even confuses me.. But once you change the forum's appearance as I've stated above.. you can see a difference.

    Hmm, I'm already on TreasureNet - Pro setting...

    I do notice different color combinations on the folders. Blue with a red tag, yellow with a blue tag, yellow with a red tag. Not clear what means what. And even if it's telling me that there's a thread with new posts that I haven't read yet, how do I get to just those new posts, so I don't have to start at the top again and re-read what I already read?

    Explanation Needed: What my post is pointing out is that when you goto the bottom of the General settings page.. There is a small window (TreasureNet Pro) that shows you three different options when viewing the forum.. I thought that this would give you a chance to view in all three modes to see if any or none of them help you.

    What Jeep is saying is to try the "TreasureNet Option" version, see if you like it better, Pro is the default version...

    "If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; and posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." --Samuel Adams

    Yeah, unfortunately changing the look of the page doesn't address the fundamental issue, of not being able to distinguish topics I've never seen from topics I've seen with unread followups, and to navigate directly to the unread followups in the latter case.
