It will take me a little while before I know exactly how to use all this site. I am trying to find out when I come on the forum how to see the latest post. Is there a certain place I am suppose to see this?

With 2500 to 5000 posts made every day, "latest post" doesn't remain the latest post for long.

In the upper-right corner of the screen you will find a Newest link. That will take you to a page that contains links to all of the posts made in the last 24 hours, with the most recent one on top. Exception: Threads started in the Around the Campfire section are not listed.

On the forum index page, click on the Open Roads Forum link, which is a few lines below the Newest link, all of the sub-forums that have new posts since your "last visit" will have a New posts icon,

If you open a sub-forum's topics page, all of the threads that have had posted added since yor "last visit" will have New posts icons.

"Last visit" is defined to be a certain about of idle time - when you have done nothing on the forum, One specifies the about of idle time that is used on the preferences page.

Don't you need to be 'logged in' to see the very latested one? I found that awhile back that if I was not 'logged in' the latest post was 2 or 3 hours prior. After 'logging in' the posts were up to the minute. Gary


No, you don't have to be logged in.

What you saw was a time difference. When you are logged in, the display engine uses your local time to indicate when posts were made. If you are not logged in, the display engine doesn't know what your local time is, so it uses its own local time, which is Mountain Time.

Since I'm in the eastern time zone, a post that I see as being made at 10 AM, while I'm logged in, will have a time stamp of 8 AM if I log out and look at it again.
