    When I create a new thread it never seems to show up when I click on "New Posts" under the Forums drop-down. But if I click on "Recent Posts" at the top right of the "New Posts" page, it shows up.

    What's going on?

    New posts are new to you, i.e. posts you have not seen. If you created it you saw it. :)

    I have found recent posts very helpful when I want to edit or make additional posts and can't remember the name of a thread where I posted. I am sure this doesn't happen to anyone else.:D

    how I found this thread:)

    I use the forum menu itself. When there's something new, the title of the thread is a darker color. After I look at it, it changes to the lighter color. I like that better than using the "new" or "recent" option.

    If all that has changed is that you have thought more about it, there is no signal to help you remember where it was or its title. I think that is where the recent posts may be useful. Of course if you have posted in the thread, you can look at your own post history.
