    Unless the "new posts" is going to show around 30 threads, I don't like it. I like to keep up with all the threads that have been posted in and the old way allowed it where the new way seems to be the same "new posts" as before. I get the whole "excess fat " thing but in the last couple of weeks we have been viewing the 2.0 version, this change is by far the most radical and I hope we can bring back the threads to the homepage without having to go into the individual forums. "New threads" does not show enough, especially for those who aren't checking GH every couple of hours a day.

    The "Get New Posts" option is going to show each and every new post since your last visit, whether that number is 8 or 8000 -- so yes, it is showing all threads that have been posted in since your last visit. Additionally, there has always been an option to get "Today's Posts" under the Quick Links dropdown on the vBulletin navigation -- I'll add it to the main navigation here in a few.

    What I suggest is you take some time to actually go through all the options that are available to you. They've always been here and I honestly don't think you've ever truly taken a deep look at them. In fact, between the "New Posts" and "Today's Posts" options, it has a far deeper reach considering the Top Stats box only included the Top X, which I believe I had set to 25... so if there has been more then 25 threads posted in since your last visit, you wouldn't have known anyway.

    I love how clicking the articles in newswire takes you right to the article in a new window. Wow, this site is really top-notch and very professional. Well done! (and thank you!)

    Something seems to be up with your "Introductions & Welcome" auto-posts:

    Yeah, I fixed that right after I saw that. That is the default welcome message for the software -- from the code writer's forum.

    Would you be able to add a side bar item for the most recent blog entries, it would probably increase views.

    maybe already noted in a different post, but under the 'view new posts' tab, you now need to be a gold club member to access?

    Yes, that was disabled due to the recent outage we had.
