: Did you know?

I'm starting this thread as an experiment to see if it is useful. I'm thinking we could use it to share tips about the forum or about art in general that others may or may not know and that could be helpful.

This is my first tip:

Did you know that you could change the way you view the posts in a thread from the 'oldest to newest' to be 'newest to oldest' so the last post is always shown first. I find this very handy for threads that are long. To do it go into "User CP" click on Edit Options. There are lots of good stuff in that. The feature I'm talking about is toward the bottom and it's called "Thread display mode". The default is 'Linear Oldest First'. Click on it and change it to 'Linear Newest First'.

Of course this is just my preference and you might not like it, but I wanted to share that.

Had no clue about that, Terry. I will try it.
I know every time I click on the New Posts link at the top, it always seems to show something different.

I love the 'New Posts' link. It shows all the posts added that you haven't replied to or viewed. It makes it so easy to keep up with everything going on.

Where is the "New Posts" link? I can't seem to find it.
