    I just posted a new thread. It's my first since the forum has updated. For some reason when I click on "NEW POSTS" it doesn't show up there. I have to got to "RECENT POSTS". I just this that's odd becasue it a new thread you should be able to see it in "NEW POSTS". Will the "RECENT POSTS" tab stay where it is now or ho back to the top? I usually use the "RECENT POSTS" to navigate the forum and check out what's being talked about. Just wonder but if someone could definitely let me know the reason why new threads don't show up in "NEW POSTS"

    I had one more thought on this too... If new threads don't show up in "NEW POSTS" I don't think they will get as many views. It actually took me a little to find the "RECENT POSTS" tab and I thought that everything was lumped into the 'NEW POSTS" tab for a little. So I wasn't seeing the new threads until I accidentally saw the "RECENT POSTS" tab out of the corner of my eye. This could just be me. Maybe it the "RECENT POSTS" was next to the "NEW POSTS" this might help. Just a thought.

    I agree. I have been asking to get this put back to the way it was.

    OK good I'm not the only one lol... It's weird I just did a new post and a new thread and neither of them showed up in "NEW POSTS". There only in "RECENT POSTS". How do you have something show up in "NEW POSTS".

    I just sent Brent another message about this.

    I think when you start a new thread it will show up in the right column under "new threads". Once you view it it disappears unless you go to Recent Posts (assuming you can see that button). It is all very confusing and counter-intuitive to me. I imagine everyone is having the same confusion and frustration.

    I just noticed that we have buttons for "Watched Treads" and another for "Watched Forums". I don't know about others here, but I don't mark things to watch, I check the recent ones. I use the url:Recent Posts | Orchids Forum. That will get you to recent posts.

    Sorry, the url was changed during the posting process to a link, which is not what I wanted. So copy and paste this into your browser:
    orchidsforum.com/find-new/threads?recent=1
    You can't just bookmark the results of this search, but you can set up a bookmark with this url through your browser, so you won't have to wait for this to get resolved.

    Thanks Marni... I've been clicking on "NEW POSTS" the below that a little and to the right there's "RECENT POSTS". Then I've been clicking on that and then all the new threats and posts show up.

    I think you are seeing things differently on your phone. I have had this bookmarked for years. That way I don't have to scroll back to the top of the page to see the rest of the threads.

    No, it's a mess IMO.

    Marni, I agree with Jonathan. It is messed up. You are obviously seeing something different than me.

    I use Recent Posts, too. If you view a post then your options are to use the backward button and therefore possibly miss a Recent Post or go back to New Posts and then to Recent Posts again.

    The first picture is my home screen for the forum... Then I click on NEW POSTS. As you can see in the second picture all the threads listed are not new threads or posts... In the 3rd pic if I click the RECENT THREAD tab that's a little below the NEW POST tab and to right a little the my new threads and posts come up. The RECENT POST tab is much smaller and you can only see it of you click NEW POSTS. It wasn't like this before. So you can see what I mean that a lot of new threads an posts might now be viewed becasue there not showing up in NEW POSTS. I hope it's visible this way and makes sense.

    Let me know if this makes sense now what I'm saying. With the new update you can see any new posts or threads if you hit the NEW POSTS tab.. Only if you hit NEW POST first the RECENT POSTS. After hitting RECENT POSTS you then can see new posts and threads. You can see how small the RECENT POST tab is and it only shows up if you click NEW POSTS. This is just a little confusing this way and I think new posts and threads aren't being view becasue people are assuming that it would be under NEW POSTS. Thats what I thought for a couple days until a saw the RECENT POST tab. I only noticed this becasue i started a new thread and couldn't find it.. Hope this makes what I was saying clearer

    I am not sure what is so confusing about the New Posts link. A new post is simple; It is a post you have not seen.

    If you create a new post or new thread then you have seen it so it doesn't show. If you view a post or thread then you have seen it therefore it isn't a new post.

    The recent post links show everything regardless if you have seen it or not.

    I will get the link back up soon, I promise.

    Brent,
    I understand how it's suppose to work. Anything you view won't show up in new posts but what I'm saying is that things I haven't view yet aren't showing up in new posts. I have to go to recent posts to view them even though there new. Maybe becasue I'm using a cell phone and not a computer I don't know.

    It may be due to time as well. There is a limit on how long things are kept as 'new'.
