highlight forums I read

Under the old system I could go to the forums page and see the forums I monitor highlighted. This makes it very easy to, as an example, go straight to the For sale or General forums. With no highlight I have to scan the forums list until I come across the one I'm looking for. Where or how do I set forums as read?

I was not aware of such a feature, the links change color, but have not seen the forums themselves highlighted.

Where was that in options?

I always use a Bookmark shortcut to go directly to the forum I want.

in IE, it would be ALT-A and then I ensure that the forums are listed in the order that I want.
Technical
General
Miscellaneous

now, all you need do is ALT-A (this brings up the bookmark list)
press A (this will select the first item in the bookmarks that starts with 'A'

now, if there is ONLY one item that starts with 'A', IE will immediately jump to that bookmarked page.

If however, you have more than one item starting with 'A', IE will wait for you to press another key. IF that key is the ENTER key, it will jump to that bookmark.

IF that key is the letter 'A' again, it will go to the next entry starting with 'A' and if that is the last 'A' entry, it will jump to that one, or you will need to press ENTER.

I have done this for at least 30 years in every browser made.

Firefox uses ALT-B to bring up the bookmarks list, then 'T' jumps me to Technical Forum.
'G' jumps me to General Forum,
etc....

My favorite bookmark is 'N' for new posts.

ALT-B and then press 'N' and it goes to New Posts immediately.

John,
What I wanted to say and what I did say may not be the same. I said highlighted and you used the term changed color. I said forums and you used the term links. How do I set the forum page to highlight (change color) a forum name (link) once I use it? Thanks for your help.

Charlie, I have no idea, and I have never seen that happen.

The only thing that comes to mind is the "following" command.
On an Android forum that I frequent, they have a Subscribe To feature whereby you can mark the forums that are of interest to you, and then when you hit new posts, only "new threads" in those "Subscribed Forums" will show up.

If that is what you mean, nice feature, I will snoop around and see if there is something to trigger that.

for me, I have to watch everything, so it don't matter.

I changed back to classic and found that the forums I read were red and all the others were blue. I then clicked on a blue forum, test, and it turned red. From day one I don't remember setting anything up to do this, it has always been that way. Also when I run ccleaner everything turns back to blue to be changed to red when next accessed. Is this how a Subscribed forum works?

that is a feature in our browsers, not the forum Charlie.


if you reallyu want to screw up your browsing history,
Clear Cache, Temp, and History.....

Then every link you see for the next year will be blue until you click on it again.
Not something I like to have happen

I understand that, my question is why is it only active in classic mode and not the others?
