How to Set Up for Whats New and Read vs Unread


Jan 12, 2003
The new system will record the posts that you've read in the database, so that you can change computers and get the same information displayed anywhere you go...

To achieve that, you really need to "reset the counters" at the outset, so that you instruct the system that you've seen everything already!

From that point onwards, all "What's New" and read/unread icons will register correctly...

Obviously, you won't want to read all 50,000 posts to achieve that... so there's a Tool to do it for you. Here's How;
1 - Go to the Forum menu bar and click Forum Actions
2 - Click on "Mark Forums Read"


From that point onwards, the software tracks what you've seen / not seen yet!
