I had issues finding it at first aswell.
Go to the home page, then click the little looking glass icon(search)
Then in the bottom left of that box is a downward pointing arrow, after clicking that it should come up with an option of recent posts.
That's what I meant earlier this morning, is alittle long winded but I'm getting used to it.

It's different lol. I really liked the look of the old forum, but I'm sure I'll get used to this :) I have had a wee browse, so far I like the fact that the forum now seems to autosave whatever you type, this is very useful! Also like the alerts, those are great! I'm really missing the home page with the latest posts, however since there's a tab for it at the top I'm hoping we might get that back? Also can't see a way of viewing my threads alone, only my posts and threads combined? Thanks RVM, it must be really difficult for you to navigate the new system!

To see your threads alone I went about it differently than the instructions RVM gave me.
If you go to your profile and then to "postings" tab, then follow that page down about half way and it should say in red "view posts by" or "view threads by"

Got it, thanks jesse! Also if you click on forum then one of the options is "recent posts" now, I'm not sure if it has just been added or I just didn't see it before. BTW clicking on Home and Forum doesn't make any difference?

You mean on the red bar across the top

Yep, I'm not sure it was there before tho, think everything just needs a bit of time to settle down!

Yeah I don't have that on my phone.
Perhaps that's why?

Look great on a phone (iPhone 4) alot more modern.

As others have said it will take some getting used to, this is basically the only car forum i go on so not used to navigating in this way at all haha.

Would be good if post count and join date could show with the avatar on the mobile view?

Also is there a way to view the desktop version on your phone? Like some sites have a link at the foot of the page.

The homepage with latest posts can't be added :(

I'll work to try to create a My Posts / My threads links on the navigation bar :)

Join Dates, Post count and Location added!

Done, post count join date and location added. :)

I think I cant add the desktop version link, since the responsive design of the forum adapts to your phone / mobile device resolution :)
