    what's the logic behind the 'new posts' link?
    you get to see posts that were updated, and posts that contain unread content - but not the postings i just visited or posted in.
    on the old forum, i could see them as well which i considered quite useful to jump between threads.

    i hardly visit a certain subforum, but only use the new post function to get an overview of what has been posted in the meantime.
    i know that many forums work that way nowadays, but maybe there's a way to configure that easily.

    edit: maybe you can also use a different display for the "jump to first unread post" link in the 'new post' function. i found that it hides behind the blue dot, but that's hard to hit with your finger on any touch device.

    Next to each of your posts you will see a summary

    Click on your username and then click on "View Trading Profile" for a detailed view.

    Once you view a post, it no longer is considered new and will no longer be shown until it gets updated again. I think what would be good is to have a "recent post" function to view what was posted recently, regardless if you have already viewed the posts.

    Is it this it?

    yes, that's it.
    but i just found that the links of the threads have changed since my first visit this morning and now automatically include this function as well.
    i think right after the update, every thread was considered as new. now as more and more threads receive new posts, clicking the thread title automatically brings me to the latest unread post. so all is good!

    @canuck222

    The dark style has been installed. Please let me know if this works for you.
    Here is a guide on switching styles.

    Thanks! Have you looked at other boards that use the same software? They seem to have a "theme" can you do that with this? Or is it something you plan on doing?

    I plan on adding a custom MMB theme in the near future.
