    I was just wondering if there are plans to update the board software to some of the newer formats. Features like being able to pull up new posts since your last visit would be a nice addition to an already good site.

    To the best of my knowledge, it already does this. At least on mine, all new posts show up at the top of every page. Have you checked your sort order in your My Home?

    Do you mean a feature where you click a link and it lists all new posts in all the forums since your last visit? Personally, I think that would be counter-productive, because there are hundreds of new posts every day and sorting through the ones you don't want to read would take longer than going to the individual forums and glancing at the titles. New posts should be highlighted with a number in parentheses telling you how many posts have been made in that thread since you last read it.

    That feature is at the bottom of the main index page. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    There is a "show favorite forums" but no "show new posts since last visit"

    Yes that's what I was talking about. I personally like that feature on boards, but I know what you mean about the volume of posts. I guess I just need to get used to how this board works
