I've noticed in some parts of this forum there is a "New"button
What is it for? TIA
I've seen this before and I didn't know it was a button? I thought it was just a flag for any new posts in the thread, since your last visit.
Thats exactly what it is. Its a marker to show which comments have not been read since the last visit.
Ok, so what if anything happens if a person clicks it? And thanks for the info.
Other than hearing a little click noise from your mouse, nothing.
Thank you. Better to ask & be safe, than not & be sorry.
If you hover your mouse over it, the cursor doesn't change into a hand icon. It's not an actual clickable object.
Thanks,I just tried that.
I have to agree that the design of that "New" notification thing does resemble a clickable button a little bit too much
Question:- WHY bother - - it's not necessary and amounts to (imo) eye-candy.
there's a rule in engineering, "feature xyz must be both necessary and sufficient" otherwise leave it out.
For the record, I do use this marker as a pointer to where I left off from the last visit.
It's a bit redundant but I like it.
I think it looks sporty.
Gosh, put a smiley face on it
