    With the old UBB forum software, the New post icons seemed to remain active for an entire forum viewing session. I could read for hours and still know which threads had new posts since my last visit. With vBulletin, however, it seems that the [​IMG] New posts icons "go out" after only a couple of minutes. By the time I read thru an even slightly long thread and then go back to the thread list page, all of the threads have the plain yellow [​IMG] No new posts icon. It's very hard to tell what threads have been updated since my last visit. Is there some way to change the way this works?
