    Hi –



    I have noticed some strange behavior when opening a post from New Posts:



    Often when clicking on a Post in the left-hand column, the post that shows is not #1 but rather #3, or 4, whatever. This does not seem to happen when I open the same post from the specific forum.

    When you go to a topic from New Posts, or by clicking the icon to the left of the topic in the forum, you'll jump to the first post that you haven't read yet. If you click on the topic in the forum, the thread opens to the first post in the thread.

    Oh. My confusion arose from the option of clicking on Newest Post. I didn’t realize how accommodating the Forum could be.

    Thanks, Hans.

    Where do you find New Posts?

    I don't log out when I'm at this computer. Is that why nothing's new since my last visit -- because I haven't stopped visiting?

    To see new posts, go to new posts.

    The Lounge doesn't provide this as a clickable link, so if you want to use this, you have to add it to your browser's Favorites/Bookmarks.

    HansV:

    Thanks for the link, but I don't know how to use it.

    Oh, there we go. The period at the end of your link was not supposed to be there. I edited the URL in my browser's address bar, and I got the New Posts page. Thanks!

    http://lounge.windowssecrets.com/ind...h&do=new_posts (sans terminating period) worked a treat. Thanks!

    Ah - another bug. The forum software automatically converts an URL beginning with http:// to a clickable link, but apparently it doesn't know where to stop, so it included the period in the URL. Corrected now.

    Wonderful! I'd been using the "Today's Posts" link at the bottom of the main page, but this works even better (after I'd marked all forums as read).
