    Don't know how hard it would be to implement - but could a 'new Posts' sort option be added somehow

    When I look @ new posts - I'd like to be able to click on 'Forum' title & all the new posts will be sorted into forum groups,
    allowing me to look through all the post for one forum first - then any others

    Why not just check the forum itself? If a thread contains a new post you'd get this: [​IMG]/[​IMG] (or this: [​IMG]/[​IMG] if you've read all posts in the thread). Or am I missing something?

    True - but I visit several different forums here, & just popping to the 'new posts' then grouping the forums together would make it easier (for me)... also I've seen other forums with such a sort option, why not here ???

    ??? - you can customise 'my assistant' to show 'new posts by forum' ????
    If so - How ???? - 'cos all it does for me is the same as 'New Posts'

    I think he wants to be able to view new posts for specific fora, not all of them.

    If I do that I just press Forums and then pick and choose, but I tend to use the new posts button as it is now.
