how to tell old threads have new replies Can't Post

OK, because I am an intuitive user of technology (meaning I don't always read the directions! LOL) I was having a hard time figuring out how to tell where the new replies to old threads (threads that weren't on the current page) were in the RR. I could see they were there in the main index (which shows number of new replies in red), but kept having to scroll back and back until I found them.

Because I use "expanded view" as a default and all the forums open that way for me.

But just in case anyone else is also confused, I discovered that if I choose "collapsed view", any thread which has new replies in it will show up dark, even if I've already viewed the root post. You may still have to scroll back a page or two, but that beats scrolling back 7 or 8 pages!

Just a hint to the fellow clueless ones.

Cool
