Marking Posts as Read

Post by Coolkat »

I don't have the time to read every new post but I'd like to see what is new since the last time I visited so I'm wondering how do I mark all posts as read? Most forums can do this but I don't see an obvious way to do this here.

In the "Isle Royale Forums Index" view there's a "Mark forums read" on the top-right of the forums list.
In the "Isle Royale Web Board" view (essentially the same), it's "Mark subforums read".

Also, you can subscribe to one or more (or all) of the forum topical areas (and individual sub topics as well) and then receive an email when there's a new post. The email also includes a link that takes you directly to the new post. I find it quite convenient.

I just go to the menu and click new posts. I read the ones I want. Ignore the others. If I check in every day or two, there are never many there.
