A "view all new posts" button would be great, along with "mark all posts read".

It’s there under the menu. At least on mobile. I know it’s on desktop too but I don’t remember where.

I see New Posts under the Quick Links menu (top left in a desktop browser), but I don't see a place to mark everything read.

I know not everyone reads forums like I do, but I'm OCD about seeing which posts are new, reading those of interest, and marking everything else as read.

At the bottom of the threads, right under the date and time, is a mark forums read spot.

I think I see the problem. If I go into a forum through the forum menu, I can see the mark all posts read link. It does not stand out very well being in regular text near the date and time, but it is there. If I enter the thread by using the links to recent topics on the home page (top of the page before you get to the forum links), there doesn't appear to be a mark thread read link.

if that helps anyone find it.

I never even noticed those things were options. I've found myself mainly perusing the "recent topics" section.

I can do a little digging at some point to see about how to add the "mark all as read" link to the version of the new posts that the quick links menu takes you to.

I just use New Posts. I make sure I log out after finished reading. Then next login, just select New Posts, and anything that happened since last logout shows up. Rinse, repeat :)

If you haven't found it already, here's a picture of where it is.

It just ocurred to me that I had switched to the pro silver theme from the forum default.

If you're on the forum default, it's here at the bottom of the page.

Ok I was confused at first as to why the forum looked different. For those unaware, as I was, you can change the way the forum appears, by going to your user controls, then, to board preferences, then click on the drop down box, next to My Board Style, there is the pro silver view.
