    Mark All Forums Read seems to have disappeared.

    It's now a dropdown from the Forums tab. I removed the subnavigation bar in order to clean up the navigation area and to let the main navbar "float" when scrolling.

    OK. I tried hovering over Forums, then tried clicking. I see you must hover over the little symbol.

    I'd happily trade Audio Gear Club and Serious Compacts, which I never click, for Mark Forums Read and My Posts, which I access all the time.

    I see that Unread Posts is now hidden as well. That's the first thing I look at when I access the site. It sure would be nice if that were visible without having to do anything.

    Amin, I just tried my iPad. It's very difficult to press the little down-arrow symbol next to Forums with my finger. Most of the time I activate what's to the right or left.

    I'll hope you'll reconsider the changes. For me they make the site less usable.

    It will take some time to understand how the changes are working out.

    Me too. I always go to "unread posts". Hope it can be reinstated.

    The view unread posts and mark forums read buttons are pretty much the most used things I click on.

    Having to hover over forums, wait for the popup to come up and then pick off a list is significant step backwards in usability.

    Another vote here to reinstate the "Unread Posts" on the main menu.

    However, on my iPad, Recent Posts, Unread Posts, and My Posts now all appear within the triple-line symbol. They used to appear by themselves on the line with no extra step needed for access.

    For mobile users, much less convenient now. A vote for changing all back.

    Experimenting is good though.

    guess?
    FYI I use <recent posts>. <watched threads> and only very occasionally <forums>, <buy sell>.

    <mark forums read> is easy to access in the forums drop-down. I never use it.

    I use this link when logging on.
