Default Anybody Use the "New Post" Feature?

I'm going to harp on this for awhile to get everybody familiar with it because I think it's a great feature that will allow us to expand the number of topics we offer without fear that some will be neglected (like Hunting Reports on the old forum).

Who is currently using the "New Posts" link at the top of the menu list? What are your thoughts?

Michael

BTW, if you aren't checking the site quite as freqently, you might be better suited to clicking "Quick Links" and then "Today's Posts" instead of "New Posts". That will show you the posts within the last 24 hours.

I've been using it Michael. I like it. I have always been going to the last post feature also. What a time saver without having to scroll thru every post!

I have used it, but to me it has it pluses and minus'. Sometimes this forum moves so fast something your looking for will drop quick. Just depends on the time and situation

This is the feature I use most often with all the other forums I frequent. Much easier to keep track of what's been going on since I was last on.

The new vBulletin looks great in GREEN too. Thanks Michael!

I'm trying it right now. Nice way to catch up.

Another nice feature is the "View First Unread" at the left top of the thread although I'm finding you have to adjust a little but it gets you close to where you left off on a particular thread.

Can we do away with the 10-character minimum?

Using it now. However, (i'm just learning so no bashing) I can see how there will be several threads that I'm going to miss as they are not "new". If I want to see all of the threads then I have to select the ATC. How do we avoid this?

This new site looks great, but just a matter of familiarizing myself with all the new stuff. Thanks for that info Michael.

Of course. I'm not suggesting you use it exclusively. Just use it frequently so you can keep track of what's going on in the other forums.

I have been using it more often. I am pretty much on TBH all day and see where it is very useful in that case.

If you post on a thread from the new post listing is there a way to get back to the list short of choosing the back button on your browser?

The New Post link is available from any page you are viewing. Other than that, I'm not aware of another way to return other than the back button.
