Re: "New Posts" button in User CP and Homepage
When you are done reading a thread, just go to the top of whatever page you are on and New Posts is on the blue bar. A drop down box has what you want. No need to go to home page.
I know that I can do this, but it is different than every other web forum. I use enough web forums that I already have patterns in place.
The "New Posts" button is also one click, while the "New Posts" menu is two. I also can't even get to the "New Posts" menu from the Home page, so I have to click on a random thread (or "New Posts" button) to get to it.
Having a major forum menu appear and disappear gives a jarring experience.
I'm no longer participating on SailNet.
