FYI bear with me this weekend if having login issues, you will have noticed the homepage is updated and I am removing some old functions. But looks like a link between logins has broken so I am working on it.

The little box on the RHS which displayed the "recent posts" is sorely missed... now how can you check if there is a new post???

Sorry change was forced upon us by host as front page was out of date and a security risk. They actually took the site offline last week and gave me a week to fix, I was a little busy at work and realised at 3 in the morning that time was nearly up. I had been working on the update, but a couple of the things are not working. One of which was the new posts box I had on the front page, may not make it back in that format.
Martica I am going to assume this was your issue also, if not let me know if new page causing you other issues.

Back to your current problem, so get a list just like that box, just go to the forum and click "View New Posts". Once there if you click on the small icon just before the post title it will take you to the first unread post in that thread. This keeps track of what you have read and is what I always use as the front page just showed the latest posts and sometimes you end up at the end of a long thread and need to scroll back. I will try to post up some pictures.

See the little page with a magnifying glass in front of the post, click that and will take you to your last read post

I am working up to moving to a new host as this one has speed issues on and off, and I now have a dedicated box for similar cost. And forum also needs an update so I am working on that also.
