    I suspect because since you posted it, it wasn't considered "new." Most forum I visit work like that.

    It didn't used to work like that. And I'm seeing posts with earlier time periods but not ones with later ones. { the first one I noticed was Mason's reply on the Trump Russian thread } Interestingly I saw your post under new posts but when I went back to new posts after reading it. It was gone. I had to look under subscriptions to find it and make this reply.........

    No, it didn't. Before, after looking at a new post, you came back and it was still there but grayed out. Now, after looking at a new post, you go back and it is no longer there, because it is no longer new.

    Honestly, I liked the old way better.

    Me too. The other thing that is a bit weird was when I clicked on settings to find this thread and reply there is a list of my subscriptions that don't appear to be in any order. But if I then click on subscriptions it puts them in order.........

    I totally agree! I just had it happen to me....I had looked at a post...then I went back to re read it and it was gone because I had already visited it. That was frustrating.

    On other forums this would be the "unread posts." The other option is usually "new posts" or "latest posts" or "today's posts," which is what we used to have.

    NOTE FOR FRANK: If you are following this thread, I am not complaining. I am just processing the transition.

    Unfortunately this is in the core of the forum code therefore we're stuck unless I can find a plug-in to turn the behavior back to the way it was. In my copious amounts of free time (Ahem), I'll take a look in the update information to see how they changed things.

    So one of the biggest issues I have noticed is that messages read back in January are still showing as unread - this may just be the effect of "database ghosts" and I'll set all forums to read this evening after reading through. I also have the problems that others have said where the post would have shown up in the new posts as read to include my own posts. I'll just get used to how it works

    You can still view "today's posts", but you have to work to get there.

    Click the "Forum" tab, then "Quick Links" (in the blue bar). In the window that drops down, select "Today's Posts".

    I just noticed something else that is considerably different.

    When doing an advanced search for a username, it still pulls in suggestions after typing in three letters, but all the suggestions are SIDE BY SIDE, instead of a vertical column.

    Not sure I can adapt to that one.
