Before the forum upgrade, I used to click on the "Today's Posts" button and review what was new. I didn't need to sign in for this.

I can't seem to find a similar function. When I click on the "Latest Activity" tab at the top, I get an error (unable_to_contact_server_please_try_again, error_information_x).

Is there a way to see the most recent topics?

I'm using Chrome Version 68.0.3440.106.

Thanks

I've posted this problem several times since the switch, and nothing is getting fixed.
This used to be a great forum, with loads of help and info, but I rarely visit the forum anymore, as I can't follow new posts.

On my "Home" page, there are two sections that show up on the right side of my screen (on a PC, I don't use a mobile platform for the forums) titled "LATEST TOPICS" and "TRENDING TOPICS". Each of these has a button marked "View All". Have you fellas checked these out to see if they are functionally the same or similar to what you used to use?

If you can PM me with as much detail as you can regarding the old missing feature, I will see that the info gets to the people who currently handle the forum software. I don't deal with that sort of work here but can communicate with the team that does.

Skip,

With Posts selected, which appears to be the default, I click on "New Topics" at the upper left and it seems like I get a list of posts that were made since my last visit. I am able to follow threads over multiple days.

That takes me to the first post in the thread, not the latest.
What is very useful on most forums I frequent, is the link that shows a list of all posts since I last visited the forum, along with a link to the latest post in each thread.
I gives me a way to follow anything new in seconds, without having to load a bunch of pages, and scroll down on each.

That feature would be very useful here as well.

Cobranut,

I feel the frustration, I hate the new look.

But here is how I accomplish what your trying to do..

When you first log in click on "Ziller Generac Forums" tab near the top left of the page.

It appears already to be selected because it's white where the other tabs are blue. Click it anyways.

Now right below "Ziller Generac Forums" tab you will see "New Topics" Click "New Topics" and it will list all the new forums since your last log-in.

Now when you click one of the new topics since last log-in you will continue to see "New Topics" near the top of each page. Clicking "New Topics" again it will take you back to the list of new topics since last log-in minus the last topic you read.

The issue appears to have something to do with the page not recognizing you when you return to the page because when I return to the Ziller Forum it shows in the top right corner "Login or Signup" After clicking the "Ziller Generac Forums" tab it then shows I'm logged in.

Hope this helps.
