Just checked into the forum for my daily peek--and I noticed many new posts in many new threads--however, none of the threads were marked with the "new post" marker...another glitch, possibly?? I had to go through each thread to srr which ones were, in fact, new or passe!!

The forums only keep track of new posts if you're logged in.

They really mean "new to you" posts >:)

You should. That type of information can begin to suck-up resources in a database quickly.

Actually, if it is programmed correctly it doesn't have to. All it needs to do is store your last access timestamp associated with your account, then have a check where if timestamp of the last post in a thread > your last access timestamp, mark it as New.

And that's what I'm getting at--new log in--no new posts are marked--but there ARE new posts...
