    Is there a way to toggle your settings so that the only topic titles that are displayed in bold are ones new since your last visit? I checked the User CP but could not find an option.

    The forum seems to bold anything you haven't read, regardless of age or last visit. It's not a bad system, but it's opposite of most online-forums I'm used to and it seems a bit confusing.

    Click on "Forum Tools" toward the right of the screen and click "Mark As Read". This will start you over from scratch ;)

    I just click the "new posts" button on the top menu. It gives a list of recent things. Anything I have previously clicked on is not there and anything that is recently posted is shown.

    Its' not perfect, but good 'nuff for me...

    Joey - thanks, got it. I guess you do that each time you leave a forum?

    MarkSBG - I'll give that a try, too. Usually I just hit the forums I am most interested in, but I'll try that strategy as maybe it will expose me to new things, too.

    Thanks.

    Well if you just read every topic/post every day, then you wouldn't have a problem :p
