    Newbie question

    Hi guys.

    I found this forum a couple of weeks ago and have been lurking about ever since. I have returned to cycling after a hiatus of about 30 years (Boy, have things changed or what?) and I've found some great advice on here.

    One thing is frustrating me though, how do you know when new posts have been added to a thread that you have already read?


    Thanks in advance, Red.

    Hi UK Red, Welcome! It says "New" above the avatar for a new post. Its highlighted in yellow. Very tiny and easy to miss.

    Ahhh! You can't see the avitars until you open the thread. Can you tell if there is a new post on a thread without opening it?

    If there is a new post in a thread, the thread name will be in bold letters.
