Is there any way to know which posts you've posted to, like on the PM site you get a little green thing showing that you've replied to a post.

Click on your name in your first post, then click "View Forum Posts." This open a list of them.

I see a green circle with a check to the right of the word "views" for threads i've posted to.

OK I replied to post and was named as last to reply, do not see any green thing showing that I'd replied to a thread, what gives.

OK Mcgyver I see your screen shot and the green thing but it never shows on my screen, so what is going wrong?

Although the option to display threads-posted-in is turned on in the board settings, we lost the graphic notice when IT reworked the status envelopes seen at the left of the thread title.

What Mcgyver is seeing is the thread subscription notice, which should work as an alternative.

To set it up, go to General Settings/Default Thread Subscription Mode and select From My Control Panel Only in the menu options.

This should do the trick, I think.

Duckman,

I went ahead and made the change for you. You can change it back yourself by going to your settings page or just give me a shout. This should work on all of your posts from here forward, but will not show for posts made prior to the change.
