I never knew that, thanks!!!!
There's another thing I always wanted to do; maybe there's a way:
When I click "New Posts" it comes up with the most recent first.
To me, the best way to catch up on what's happened since I last visited is to start with the OLDEST unread post first. As it is, I have to page down until I get to the first one.
Ideally, I'd like to start with the oldest at the top.
Failing that, some forums
will show you ONLY the new posts when you click "New Posts." On this forum, the list continues on, page after page, showing threads I've seen before but didn't read. To my way of thinking, these aren't "new" posts at all.
If it would just stop at the new (unseen) posts, I'd be able to click on the last page and scroll backward. As it is I have to scan them all until I find the page with the line between the two categories, and start there.
