What is the difference between a new post and a recent post?

    Hi @CarrieV

    'New Posts' only lists those messages (Posts) that you haven't read from all forums.

    Found here when you are logged in.

    I think I only ever see 'Recent Posts' when I am logged out. (I logged out to do this 'snip').
    This displays all recent posts, including those you may have already read.

    Does this answer your question or do you see 'new' and 'recent' somewhere else?

    Thank you, that makes sense
    except! I seem to have both. New posts appears on the top left, recent posts in blue on the right!!
    Oh well, one of the mysteries of life!! Capture.PNG

    I see now!:) I managed to replicate what you had on your screen from the image you posted - always helpful!

    Pretty similar to my answer before: -

    When you first clicked on New Posts it displayed all the posts you hadn't read. Clicking on Recent Posts on the right of your screen then displayed all posts, including those you have read.

    It works as a filter, if you like, to only see unread posts.

    Hope this has helped! :)
