View Full Version : Tip: The "New Posts" button

I just found the "New Posts" button of the header. How nice that is to see quickly what's going on inside this forum. I hope you're using it already.

Glad you pointed that out to folks. I've been playing around in the forum for a few weeks and that is how I navigate around - it's a god send... but of course, I didn't tell anyone else about it. That's why I've got you.

I also love the "Mark Forums Read" under the Forum Actions tab. I find that once I view all the NEW POSTS, then I click "Mark Forums Read" which resets everything for me for the next day with all new posts again

Cool, I didn't know about that.
David or Magic Mike,
What platform is this forum built on? How easy is it to manage? Seems like this forum could be a teaching tool used in the "membership sites" discussion. I really like it a lot.

Dan, have you figured out yet what the different coloured envelopes mean yet beside a post yet? I'm sure it references something like an orange one means I've not posted to that thread yet or read it or something.
This is the forum vBulletin (http://www.vbulletin.com/) and here is documentation for it. (http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/)
I've only ever used Invision Power Board (http://www.invisionpower.com/) for my forums so this one is completely new to me.

HA! I spoke too soon. If you look below at the bottom of the forum on the main page of threads it tells you what the different coloured envelopes mean under ICON LEGENDS

Interesting about the envelopes. Thanks.
I'll have to check out the forum links you sent. I'm familiar with SimpleMachineForums, but that's about it in that department.
