Great feedback everyone! We really appreciate. 

We made some changes to how the Unread feature was working. 

Below are some screenshots to help you get to know the system better...

To go to Last Unread click on the arrow icon...

Topic Row (in topic listing page)...

Now, in What's New...

Yes, the links should be available on both Desktop and Mobile.

Now is there a way to get a feed just with unanswered posts?  I always like to start my browsing with the list of posts that no one has answered.  Some of them are way too specific ("Has anyone interviewed at Man's Best Hospital for the NICU?"), but anything that I know anything about, or anything that elicits my sympathy, I will answer.  Some of those posts are the start of great threads, and if you don't go looking for them, you won't find them.

Yes, that is one of the choices in What's New (streams) ...

click the icon then set to default

I'll create a topic regarding this soon.

Sorry Joe, I don't see "Unanswered".  I see "Unread," but that's not the same thing.

Sorry Ruby, I got those confused. My bad. 😥

To my surprise, this system does not have such a feature.

Well that's disappointing.  Still, it has a lot of shiny new features so I will try to contain my disappointment.

Sweet Jebus, thank you! The "go to *last* post" arrow threw me as I thought it would literally take me to the last post in the thread and not the last *unread* post.

Now, if I can only get a post preview box again when I hover over the thread title instead of a box just repeating the thread title... 😜

@Joe V is there a way to get a "mark as read" button at the top of the streams just like there is at the top of the topic listing page?

I would like to mark my stream read without the need to go to each forum to do it.

Hmmm, good idea. It could be a small icon next to the gear. 👍

Is that one of the things that are hidden underneath the advertising, WHAT'S HAPPENING, and POPULAR CONTRIBUTERS?

I cannot find that little curvy arrow anywhere!
