How do I see New Threads?

There's a New Threads box on the right/bottom (depending on screen size) of the front page and there's a "New Posts" link on the top bar, but is there a "New Threads" link somewhere that shows recently-started threads?

Thanks but no thanks. I think I'll pass.
New threads is all you need. That shows you all the recent and new threads. And if you see a thread you like and want to keep in touch with it, simply add the thread to your watch list. That way anytime someone posts on that thread, you will be alerted.

Front screen normally shows new threads, over on the right hand side but a reasonable way down the screen near the recent statuses.

Do what I do? That is to use New Posts to spot new threads, go into them, and if I am not interested in them I use Ignore Thread to remove them from future uses of New Posts. That way, I can keep on top of things without having to see lots of stuff I don't want to.

Thanks @ColinJ. I'll keep that in reserve but it seems like a lot of clicks from every user who wants to see new threads when I thought the search must be stored somewhere to generate that list on the front page...

There's no built-in function for finding new threads but you can do what you want through the forum alerts (the only down side is you've got to do it for each forum you want new thread alerts for).

Go to each forum you want to be alerted about and click the Watch Forum link at the upper right to get the options:

It should default to threads and alerts (change to suit) - then click Watch Forum. That's it. Any new threads will be notified to you via your forum alerts.

Cheers,
Shaun :biggrin:

This is how I am now ignoring all of your new ride threads :tongue:
