So you don't dislike change, but you're unhappy because it's different ?

All new posts .. is there not a "Posts" link in the red bar at the top of this page ? .. and if you hover your mouse over it, does it not display a drop menu with "New Unread" etc. ?

Now for your (or anyone else's) posts .. click on your name anywhere on this forum, and you'll be taken to your profile summary .. there is a link in the left panel "Show Posts" that will show all your posts.

I explained al this above .. what are you having difficulty with ?

None at all sir...  no problems here except the button does not work....
when I click the posts button and click new Unread i get nothing new and unread....  then i click main forum and I find you did have a new post right here that I am replying too right now..... so my point is being it is not working for me.... Every time i click it get nothing is new....  sorry to be honest, but if it worked i would not have a problem with this forum at all, every forum I am on is different in its own way, but almost all of them have those two links to show new posts and show your own posts... This forum don't seem to have those links and it is taking some getting used too, I must admit but I don't dislike the change at all...  I am not unhappy either, I am just trying to figure it all out if ya catch my drift, learning curve so to speak....

Now when it does say no unread there is a bunch of links at bottom but I can't click them they are inactive and one of those links is topics I posted in...
see screen shot....

New would mean since your last visit .. but you were still here when I posted that .. try "All Unread" or "Recents".
(or log off and come back again ?)

[EDIT]

I've just checked, and ll the "Posts" submenu items work as expected in my "regular user" test account.

Or just wait a bit and refresh, I just went to the door and took care of a customer and came back and clicked it and it worked this time even though I was not logged off....  LOL   Like I said before it's a learning curve till we get used to the way it works....   :D
Why though are all those links underneath not active though?  It would be nice if they were active....
Hmmm that is funny that they don't work on my account could it be an adblocker thing in firefox?

The ones in the screen shot up above, there are like 5 links in there for hot topics, normal topics, topics you posted in,etc...

HAHAHA Whoops sorry, I just figured out that is just telling me what the icons mean, they are not links after all...  LOL     :D

Like I said originally, change takes a bit of getting used to, we will get used to it, just give the new forum a bit of time, the good thing is that the one thing that is unchanged is the level of help from  Mark, Mac and the other guys who really know their stuff and help out those like me who blunder along in the dark! Many thanks Guys,

g'morning, releived to hear the captchas will go away... as my old eyes can't always make out whats in the little teeny tiny photos... white doesn't bother me... but folks may have options within their browsers to change background colors... chromium doesn't... gonna go check if Seamonkey will give me a grey...

It's nice to be leaving behind all the crufty posts and tutorials which give instructions and refer to things that don't quite apply to PeppermintOS4 ...

Change is good, progress... not always
