'New' tag on forum posts
« on: June 27, 2013, 06:07:58 am »
Can somebody explain to me how the orange 'new' label is attached to topics in the 'Amazing Shots' gallery

Is it done by a human or the board software ? It's just that none of mine apart from one have been tagged with this

Does it not make sense to tag every new topic with this for a certain time frame, say 2 or 3 days or something like that

Yes, it is someones job to search the forum, then hit a checkbox when he finds something new ...

No realy .. it's automatic.  It does appear when a thread is new or contains a new message.  And it shows to YOU personaly.  It goos away whenever you have "entered" that thread.  Thus the forum knows that you have visited and probably read the new entry.

Ah, cheers Philippe... So other forum members who are logged in see all my new threads with the 'new' thingy beside it, until they have entered and viewed ?
