    What has happened to the format of our forums?
    When I read the entries and get to the last one, (No new messages) I bookmark this last entry which I open, usually
    the next day and continue until I again reach the last one.
    Now, when I open my bookmark, I get a listing of all past posts referring to a previous post. Not the last one I read!
    What is the reasoning behind this change? Or, is it possibly something has invaded my computer causing this muddle?
    All I can do now, is ask for help.

    I think this thread might get better attention in the MB User Help and Comments forum.

    AFAIK, nothing has been changed in the way the MB works or its display format.
    I don't really understand your problem. Can you give me more details, and maybe screen shots?

    As I understand it, you are using the browser bookmark facility to store the URL of the last post you looked at. If it stored correctly, it should always bring you back to that URL. For what it is worth, I have never done that and so have not seen either behavior.

    I have the web site itself saved as a favorite bookmark in my bookmark list. When I open it, I look for the new material indicators and click on the "first unread" link or icon for each thread I want to read (after opening the forum of interest).

    Could you paste an example bookmark here in this thread? (as well as the screen shot Bill requested)
