How to easily find unread posts since your last visit

Post by admin » Fri Aug 07, 2015 4:30 pm

On the main forum page, we do have the "Recent Topics" listing, which shows up to 20 topics that have one or more unread posts.

However, it's still possible to miss new posts if that's what you rely on.

The BEST way to find all unread posts is to use the "Unread posts" link available from the Quick Links drop-down menu in the upper right.

That link will take you to this URL:
search.php?search_id=unreadposts

I recommend you bookmark that URL and use it as your main forum starting point.

Would it be at all possible to see whom the last post was by, next to the "jump to last post" link on the front forum page?

I can't really modify how that extension works, sorry. :(

However, if you use the "Unread posts" link, it DOES list who was the last poster! So you should really be landing on the forum using the http://www.umbraladvent.com/forums/sear ... nreadposts link, it's honestly the best way to see what you need to read.
