There is a much, much simpler way to achieve that goal.
On the Home Page scroll down to the bottom and you will find a section called 'Forum Information & Statistics' - it looks something like this:-
Forum Information & Statistics Board Statistics Threads and Posts Total Threads: 3,053 Total Posts: 28,858 Last Updated: Trewhella in Europe by chrish (3 hours ago) Recent Threads - Recent Posts - RSS Feed - Mark All Boards Read Members Members Total Members: 1,707 Newest Member: morvath Most Users Online: 170 (25 Jun 2007 at 17:54) View today's birthdays Members Online Users Online 1 Staff, 0 Members, 16 Guests. Cornish Terrier 24 Hours Users Online in the Last 24 Hours 1 Staff, 9 Members, 268 Guests. chrish, sue, donne, amandabb, zibetha, Chris, morvath, spikeharwood, white
There is a lot of information there including our total number of members, states for the number of users online in the last 24 hours etc. Probably most people never take much notice and I must admit that I only glance at it occasionally.
However, in answer to your query - the section that will help you is the first part of that panel under 'Threads and Posts' where you will see some options highlighted in blue. You will see a line 'Last Updated' which shows you the very last post that was updated. The next line is the one you want and has four options:-
Recent Threads - click on this and it will show you the most recent threads that have been updated in order from the latest backwards Recent Posts - clicking on this one gives you a list of the most recent posts that have been updated - again in order from latest backwards
Don't worry about 'RSS Feed' or 'Mark All Boards Read'- RSS Feed just gives a page of html code and if you click on the last option it will actually mark all boards and therefore all posts as having been read.
If you are idly roaming through the different sections anything that is unread will have a little 'new' sign to highlight the fact you have not read it.
That should get you all out of trouble! (And hopefully make things much easier for you all)
