    I have a bookmark that is intended to bring up recent posts. I got it by simply bookmarking the recent posts page after I selected it from the Mu-43 forums menu. It is "https://www.mu-43.com/find-new/521765/posts" Seems simple, right?

    But what I find is that when I use the Mu-43 forums menu "Recent Posts" button, I get fewer posts than I get when I use my bookmark. Specifically, it seems to omit threads that I have read, including those where I have posted. This is a bit annoying when I want to go back to one of these and find that it has "disappeared" from the list. It seems to me that "recent posts" should be posts that are recent, regardless of what my previous interaction with them might have been.

    So ... is this a bug or a feature?

    The "Recent Posts" link should include posts you have read. The "New Posts" link does not since once you have read a post, it isn't "new" to you any more.
