Our forum has so much great information added everyday, that it's sometimes difficult to keep up with it as it accumulates.
One handy tool is the ability to view posts since your last visit without having to enter each forum individually. If you navigate to the Forum Index, you will see a column to the far right called Last Post. Just above that, you will note there are 3 links. The top one is appropriately called 'view posts since last visit'. If you click on it, it retrieves every topic that has had additions made to it since you last looked. The middle link shows you posts that have so far slipped below everyone else's radar. It retrieves 'unanswered posts'. Maybe you could be the first to respond to a great topic! Lastly, we have a handy tool that helps you make the best possible use of the first link. 'Mark all forum posts read' this will tell the forum that you have either checked out everything new that was of interest. It will set your last visit time equal to the time you click it. This way, you should see only the most recent posts the next time you click 'view posts since last visit'.
I know a long-time member, who shall remain nameless, who was just amazed when I introduced him to these handy links. I figured that if he didn't know of this, then there may be more of you searching forums one forum at a time for fresh literature.
ps--you can also track topics and get email reminders when someone makes a post in that thread!!
