Mike, as Scott pointed out, for 25 years (even today) I've just
double-clicked on the AVSIG logo on my desk top, then pressed "n" (for new)
and in a few moments I see the new posts since my last visit. I just press
the space bar to go from one to the next. That's both straightforward and
simple. And that is usually all I want to do with AVSIG.

>> A list of messages posted since your last logon appears to the right of
the forum list. <<

On my screen, to the right of the forum list I see "Jump To--" and a list of
the forums. If you mean to the right, within the forum list, I see the name
of the last (?) poster, which may have been long before my last visit. I
don't see a list of unread posts, that I'm seeking.

Q: What is a "channel"? If I click on "Mark Channels Read", what happens?




Ward: When there are new messages since your last visit, you will see them to the right per this screen:



... If there are no new messages since that time it is normal to see the "jump to" section at the top, as you are seeing.

And "channels" on the new forum are the same things we have always called "sections" -- Hangar Flying is a channel, People/Places is a channel, etc. I did break the Aircraft section (channel) into sub sections this time around, since I think it presents that area better.

"Mark Channels Read" only tells the forum to quit giving you color icon notification of messages that it thinks you haven't read yet. It won't make any messages disappear from your view or in any way affect navigation.
