Never miss another post again. Use the New Posts (http://www.risingsun4x4club.org/forum2/search.php?do=getnew) feature. See attached screen shot.

This is a frequently used item for those that frequent the forum often.

I don't use it on mud but here it's very handy. Matt, thanks for the screen shot

I have used that for a quite some time on RS. There is a problem however if you only have time to read a couple of posts and not all and then when you come back new posts will show up and you will miss the previous ones you didn't read. Overall it is an awesome feature and I personally would be lost without it!

Yes, if you keep hitting the New Posts button, that is how it will work.

A better way to use it is to keep hitting the Back button to go back to your original new posts list, so you can go through the entire list.

The best way is to use Firefox (http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/) (or IE 7) and use tabbed browsing: keep your search list in the original tab, and then open several threads in their own tabs.

I do....all of the above! I'm saying if I have a minute and I check the forum and there is a lot of posts. I skim down and read the ones of immediate interest then my time window is gone even though there are 10 more posts I didn't read. I pull up the forum an hour or so later and poof-new posts and the ones I didn't get read are gonzo. Not a problem, just pointing out the nature of the beast....

I really like it when I'm viewing the RS forum on my BlackBerry. :D

This seems useful as well, if the URL is consistent.
Search for threads updated in the last 24 hours (http://www.risingsun4x4club.org/forum2/search.php?searchid=73080).

Does this work for everyone? Does the URL change? The part that I'm wondering about is
searchid=73080

Hmmm. I don't think it will return different results based on a rolling 24 hour period. Rats.
