    Default Help with this site

    Hello everyone, I love this site for all its very useful knowledge and endless help and support. My problem is sometimes when I click on the today's posts tab it takes me to what's new or the forum tab. Am I doing something wrong? I just hate missing out on info. Thanks, Dave

    Yes, that happens to me as well. So I click on the 'New Posts' on the menu bar just below that.

    A long time ago after reading a lot of stuff, I clicked on "Mark all posts read". Now when I come into the site I click on "New Posts" One other thing I've learned is the little green arrow next to the thread icon (see blue line in attached picture) will take you to the newest post of that thread that you have not looked at but you have to click on the little arrow. If there is a little blue arrow on the bottom left of the icon (see red line in photo) it means you have posted in that thread.

    my favorite time saver is to reverse order the listing. Newest Post first - Original post last.
    This saves me from filtering thru many posts or always needing to click last page to see the most recent posts.
    But, there is the times you still need to go to the original post to see what was said.

    Settings (at top right)
    - General Settings
    o Thread Display Options
    = Linear Newest First
