    Everytime you go away from the forum click quick links and then mark forums read then use new posts to show new posts

    If new posts are made in more than 200 threads it will only show the 200 mots recent - theres no way around this limitation

    Todays posts shows posts made in the last 24 hours and is also subject to the 200 threads limit

    Cool, Qas! You made my day. I knew I must be missing a step somewhere. I tried it and immediately got exactly the results I wanted. Thank you!!

    Yes I have slow load times (the ads are there in a flash ) I have broadband and I live in Australia so I don't think being further away from the DB is the cause.

    Yesterday (Friday here) was very bad but it may have been a internet thing because I found my Photo bucket account slow to load as well and that usually is the quickest of everything I use on-line.

    But I still maintain GW is the slowest Site of all the Forums I am on it took ages when I first joined (dial-up) and even with BB as I said it is still slow the up-grades made little noticeable difference to this.

    Oh and the question I posted in the ATM about the being sent to the 6/7 page of a thread it is still happening, but the clicking on "Mark all threads read" does seem to work but only if I click it every time I visit which isn't exactly user friendly. Anyone have any other ideas about what to do? Besides jumping up and down.

    Are you sure it's always the 6th/7th page? Try a big thread, like a thunk thread that you've never visited before, and see where it takes you.
    It seems that since the forum upgrade, the cookies work a little differently. Before, new posts included anything since your last visit. Now, they include anything you've never looked at. For example, if you visit GW everyday and someone made a thread on Oct. 1st, if you visit that thread for the first time on the 20th by clicking the New Posts check, then it will take you back to the first page, not to the posts made since the 19th. If there's a thread you've visited before, but you haven't been there since the 15th, and you go back on the 20th, you will be taken to posts since the 15th, not to posts since your last visit on the 19th.

    Personally, I prefer this new method. If I only have time to check up on a couple of threads, but there are new posts in 20 threads I'm subscribed to, then I can leave and come back later, and still go back to the first post that I haven't seen in those threads. Before, I had to back track until I saw familiar posts. But that's just me. If you don't like doing that, then yes, you're going to have to mark all forums read before you log out.

    Hope that made sense...

    Not entirely sure I follow I don't usually use the GW feature like go to new post and stuff, I usually go to the Forum page (with the users on-line at the bottom) and click on threads from there. I'm not subscribed to many threads but I don't have a problem with the ones that I am.

    I did think everything was O.K again until I clicked on an Off-Topic thread and ended up half way through it, this was a thread I have never visited before.

    If you haven't visited it before, then new posts are anything since the forum upgrade....I think....

    Qasim thanks for the links, very helpful. I've not got more GW bookmarks in my favourites than anything else! I wish I had just saved as a bookmark the mark as read one and not clicked on it though...

    Since the upgrade, the forum has loaded quicker for me. It was appalling before the upgrade, and I think a lot of UK people had trouble. I know a lot do, but for me it has improved.

    I've had that problem in the past, with it not marking as read posts I had read. It just went away after a while so I'm afriad I can't offer much help!

    Why do people start "testing my sig" threads? Other than making sure it doesn't breach forum rules, isn't it easier to simply click on your own profile and look at it there?

    They probably dont know how to get to their profile or that they even have one

    They cant test in the edit signature preview because the buttons on the side make the page smaller than it is on the forum

    There's a "testing" thread around here somewhere. It is a sig teasting thread, but i kind of evolved into testing other things, too. It's a good idea for a thread, and the thread itself is fairly large. I just forget where it is.

    Newbies who have just made their first ever sig won't be able to see the sig until they post, cos their posts have sigs disabled until after the first sig's been made and making the sig doesn't un-disable the sig on those prior posts. Doing your first sig post in a testing thread means that there won't be any "Dude, you're sig's wierd!" posts to embarrass the poor wee thing if it doesn't turn out right.

    I know, I said I would help, but it kinda helps if I understand what is being asked and I must say their is a distinct lack of questions

    I don't seem to be able to start a new thread. I can post a reply to an old thread, but when I hit "New Thread" and type info into the box, I get the message, "You need more than two characters." Any ideas?
