You'll see some new links at the top of each forum page now, in your "User Info" box:

Quote
Show unread posts (since last visit).  Show recent posts.  Show new replies to your posts.

Just to give you some more ways of finding the stuff you want.
Most of the time what you'll probably want to click is the "Show unread posts" link (or see button on button bar below), or "Show recent posts" link which shows the last 50 posts to the forum.

Hope the new options are useful.

Very much appreciated. I love the "unread post" link. Makes it so much easier to get to the new posts.

note that the "Show unread posts" does the same thing as the "UNREAD POSTS" button that we've had available for a few months (what's new is the big list of Recent Posts, and the fact that these links are now in the Info Box where its now much easier to decide what you want to see).

due to popular demand the link "Show recent posts" up at top (and also middle left of the recent post list at bottom),
which presents a dense list of the posts sorted by recency,
is now paged, with 25 posts listed per page - should make it easier to keep up (though the unread button still may be most useful for most people).

I find myself using the "since last visit" link more than anything else, actually smiley

I haven't been around here in a while so I didn't notice it as "new". I just really appreciated it being there. Thanks!

The "Show recent posts" at the top is no longer worked.  What should I do in order to list a dense list of the post.  Thanks.

I was using almost exclusively "Show latest topics", but it now puts me at Forum home only. Logged off and on again, restarted, tried different browsers... No way. Any ideas?

Besides, am I really that dumb? -- I can't see anything like the screenshot mouser posted a couple of posts above. And what is the "User Info Box"?

Nope - you're not alone yksyks... I tried all of the links and both View Supporters Yearbook and Show Latest Topics take me right back to the main forum page (or refresh it if I am starting from there). Unread Posts and Unread Replies work fine though... FWIW, another thread was started about this issue by nogojoe: DonationCoder.com Forum - Info Center

I've posted there with the same info.

Fixed (except Member map), thanks, mouser! Still can't find where your screenshot comes from, though...

The forum theme has changed since mouser posted the screenshot (it was 3 years ago). Look here:
