As Shazza said yesterday a facility that shows only the posts that you haven't read yet and something (like a dot or asterix) that shows if you've replied in a topic already
need to research that one further, because as of yet, i haven't found a way to do it myself!!!
ok, so i think that i've managed it. if you look up the top bar, then you will see a tab called newest posts. hope this helps.
Great no more seaching around to hunt down the new posts
