The most convenient way to browse recent posts is to click the "What's New?" link in the forum navigation bar. However, it is likely that you may only care about seeing recent posts from certain categories or forums. You may now "ignore" certain forums in your "What's New?" results by following the steps below.
First, click the down arrow beside your forum name to open your tab menu. Second, click the "What's New" link within the menu. These steps are squared in red in the image below.
Third, check the boxes beside the forums that you would like to ignore in your "What's New?" results. These check boxes are shown below.
Fourth, after selecting the appropriate forums to ignore, scroll to the bottom and "save." Remember, these forums will continue to be ignored unless unchecked. If your preferences change, be sure to un-ignore!
