    There used to be a link/button of "recent threads (or posts)" left side of "New Posts". I've been primary using this button, but it disappeared. Are others experiencing this?

    Thanks, Kelly. I think I found it. It is a small UI change.

    When you goes to "New Posts", it displays threads with new posts, so it is similar to "Recent Posts" in the past. In the past, "New Posts" used to show only the newly initiated threads, and it didn't show threads with new follow-up posts.

    There is a difference between the new "New Posts" vs the previous "Recent Posts". Current "New Posts" do not show the threads which you have already read. In other words, once you read it, it isn't listed in "New Posts" any more. This isn't the behavior I like (I want to see all of the recently posted threads). Sometime, I don't have time to respond when I read the post at first, and when I come back later, I usually forget about the post.

    This behavior can be changed by clicking "Recent Posts" after you click "New Posts". When you go to "New Post", there is a page selector just above the list of contents. Right side of the page selector, there are two buttons: "Mark Forums read" and "Recent Posts". So if you click "Recent Posts", we get exactly the same behavior.

    So, this isn't a problem!

    Thanks Naoki. I would never have seen that. For everyone else, if you haven't found it check out the photo below (big red arrow)
