    Hi @Amin Sabet@Amin Sabet, the Unread Posts link no longer appears in the header on my Android phone and an iPhone, both with Chrome.
    It is in the drop-down menu.

    Let me know if you need any other info.

    Thanks,
    Barry

    Hi Barry, the "button" I circled below in red can be set either to Recent Posts or Unread Posts. I have it set to Recent Posts because of a hunch that more people use Recent Posts than Unread Posts. Do you think otherwise? Or were you talking about something else?

    OK, I'll look to change the setting for myself.

    I only use Recent Posts to see if anything new showed up between reading unread posts and hitting Mark Forums Read.

    It's not changeable per user. What I meant was that I can change the code so it is one way or the other for everyone. My suspicion is that not many people use Mark Forums Read or Unread Posts and that more use Recent Posts. Maybe should do a poll...

    I can't imagine reading a forum without the mark forums read feature. It is rather shocking to me that others don't use it.

    A poll sounds good...

    Is this only for the responsive version?

    Poll posted. Will be interesting to see the results. Yes, only for responsive.

    Well, that's just my guess. I for one never use it, and I am an old forum dawg. I like to re-read recently posted to threads even when there aren't any new posts since the last read, and Unread Posts doesn't show me the threads I've already read to completion.

    Also, did you remove the Nominate a Thread for Feature link? I can't find it on mobile or desktop.

    Thanks,
    Barry

    Yes, I didn't have a place to put that. I just find it by searching. Let's sticky it at least.

    I only use a computer but i always use unread posts,read the ones of interest then click mark forums read,dont think i would want to be faced with a build up of unread posts that dont interest me.
    Sorry if i have misunderstood this
