    New posts (again) Oh, Victoooooooooooorrrria...

    So today I sign on and see I have about 12 unread posts. I read maybe half of them, then leave. I come back, click "new posts" and now it says I only have ONE unread post. The others are gone.

    Because there is ONE unread post, there is no link to find new posts in the past 24 hrs (and even after I read it, it still shows up when I click new posts). How do I get back my unread posts without searching for them forum by forum?

    I also can't find which forum the posts appeared in, which makes it difficult to find them when they disappear.

    Good Morning!
    Here's the link to the "How to check for posts in the past 24 hours" thread.

    I clicked on the link and it said "Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms" although I know there are posts I haven't yet read.

    The link is for posts in the past 24 hours.. it doesn't search for unread posts, unfortunately. You can make the search broader:
    24 hours
    Past Week
    Past 2 Weeks

    Victoria, is there a way to mark new posts as read without clicking on every new post I'm not interested in? IOW, I click on new posts and find three out of fifteen interesting. Can I read the three and mark the other twelve as read without clicking on each individually?

    From the New Posts page, or the regular forum?

    I click on discussion and then click New Posts. This isn't a gripe. I love the New Posts feature. Just looking for shortcuts.
