Marking the forums as read

(Formerly the "Support, Feedback and Forum Announcements" forum.)
Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

If you have a question or problem regarding the review team system, whether as author or a reviewer, please use the private contact forum.

Hi,
Is there any possibility of marking the whole forum as read? That would make it easier to spot new posts.

Once you join the forums and log in you will get to enjoy a very ad-reduced experience. It's easy and completely free!

Ben ... there is an option on the Forum Home page to 'View New Posts' ... this will show just the new posts since your last visit. It's the one I usually use.

There is a 'mark forums read' link on the index of the forums, and there is a 'mark topics read' link on each 'view-forum' page. Thanks!
Did you know ALynnPowers wrote books? I sure as naughty word didn't. Check it out!
