    Howdy,
    Often, new posts are shown, and they are not something that really strikes my interest. So I don't click on them. But eventually, they build up and I'm not sure if there's a new post in the section or the same one that I wasn't interested in.

    No problem. I simply log out and re-login to clear all the posts.

    My question is, is there an easier way to clear them? Like an icon somewhere?

    Cheers,
    william

    I usually read all the threads I'm interested in within a given forum, then click the "mark all as read" button on the top right for that forum. Then on to the next

    Thanks! That's what I was looking for. All this time here and I never saw that function....

    Cheers


    Edit: And I just now saw the function "mark all forums read"....

    Man... where have I been...?
