Does anyone know if there is a way to sort results on the "Show unread posts since last visit" page by Forum? Even major forum (ie Squires Tavern, US Midwest, John's Inn, etc.) would help.

Unfortunately I haven't found a way to do that, Esc.  One of the best features of the old forum was the "active topics" option, and I miss it greatly.  However, if you notice the icon next to each area on the main screen, clicking it will show you the unread posts for just that area and not the whole board.

Also clicking on the "new" icon next to a thread you've already read will bring you to the first unread post in the thread so you don't have to go through pages of posts trying to figure out where you left off.
Thanks,

 :(  I too miss the "active since your last visit" link.   I have been sorting new threads in a favorites fold in my drop down bookmark thingy ... area ... place ...

It's a big forum and there's a LOT of stuff to go through but it's all totally worth it.  From the actual faire topics to sewing to mundane stuff.  a little bit of this, a little bit of that ...
