This came up at the meeting tonight so I wanted to let y'all know that this is an option and potentially optimal way to view the forum.
It is the ability to view all the posts that are unread since the last time you viewed the forum and whatever posts. It is far more efficient when compared to viewing each sub-forum with each new post listed there.
From the index page, simply click the "View unread posts" link. Attached is a picture with a pretty pink arrow identifying it. As you can see, it's been a while since I've viewed the posts.
Also if you want to just mark all the forums read to reset them (versus viewing each individual post to mark them as viewed), just click the "Mark forums read" link on the topperish right on the index page.
If you have any questions, please reply in this thread, and I'm sure someone will reply at some point with something valuable (but probably not at first).
