    How do I get the computer to show me what I have already read and what I havent? Other sites I have looked at mark the posts I have already looked at, but that isnt happening here. There is a lot to read and I am making myself crazy rereading stuff. Thanks

    From what I can tell I only have it to show read or unread for forums.

    This is for new posts in the forum

    This is no new posts in the forum

    There is an option to "show unread posts" only. It is under your Ava on the left wehre it says Hey, (your name here). It will list how many pm's you have and under that is where it says show unread.

    Hope this helps!

    also, why don't you check the time and date? that might help.

    Thats what I am trying to do. But some forums have pages and pages to check. I was just trying to figure out how to be more efficient. I know there has to be a way.

    The crab icons should be showing up. This is what I see on the main page

    And when I go into the forums, the unread posts have a little, blue "new" thing next to the subject on the right. What are you seeing?

    kathleen, what is your theme set at? If you don't know where to check it at, go to Profile up top, then under Modify Profile at the left, click on Look and Layout Preferences. Near the top you'll see Current Theme. If you click on the words Change try selecting on Forum or Board Default and then maybe you'll end up seeing things like Amie posted.
