With the old forum we could easily see which sub-forum had new posts. That forum had a icon or something (I can't remember) that indicated it had new posts. And when you read all the posts, the icon changed to something else, which indicated there are no new posts. Unfortunately, with this new forum style all the icons are static and do not represent new or no new posts at all.

Thanks for the feedback. We still have some tweaks to make, including adding the Mark Forum Read buttons as well as state indicators as you're discussing.

Thanks, Kevin. I must say, once you get into a sub forum, the new post/old post/post-I've-replied-to icons are excellent.

Is there also a way to show new posts in threads where I have posted?
I do not subscribe to many threads, since the emails would get out of hand if I did.
I used to be able to search my posts and the envelope icon would show if there were new posts in that thread since I last posted. Now I cannot tell if there are new posts since my last post when I search my posts.--Laura Knotek (formerly known as lak611)

For someone as active on the forums as I am, notifications would drive me bonkers. Therefore, I only subscribe to a few threads, not every thread I post in.--Laura Knotek (formerly known as lak611)

James, I apologize I haven't been on the forum in quite some time. One reason was lack of time, and the other is the problem I addressed in my initial post. I do see that you created the little chat bubble icon that is either light gray (no new posts) or very dark blue (new posts). Thanks for that. However, it still does not address my initial post. Let's say you log in and are at the root of the forum. Take a look at the WPCENTRAL COMMUNITY section. There's no way to tell if Introductions, Off Topic, General MS News, or WP Central Contests have new posts based on its icon. The icon for each forum is static and never changes to indicate new posts or no new posts. So in order to see if a forum has new posts, rather than just glancing from the root forum for an icon change, I must go into each forum individually to see if there are new posts.

My Nokia Lumia 822 on Verizon with the WPCentral App keeps me easily informed about new posts Browse>Forums>Recent which is great. When I access this web site from my PC, I can't always find the same Recent posts? I've tried "New Posts" and "Today's Posts"?

Clicking the 'new posts' link at the top queries the site and returns the most recent posts... 500 posts, 100 per page, to be exact :)
