    Hey Friends,

    I see a new link at the top called "activity stream."

    How is this different from New Posts?

    (just asking....)

    The "activity stream" displays the content of all recent posts in chronological order independent of the threads from which they originate, whereas the "new posts" option displays actual threads whose order is determined by which thread has the most recent comment.

    Think of the "activity stream" as a sort of a live feed (except it's static) across the entire forum, and the "new posts" as a means of seeing which threads have been most recently updated at a glance without needing to see the specific content and number of new posts.

    Thanks for the link! Apparently, the "Acitvity Stream" only appears when you click on the "What's New" link on the navigation bar. I've never used this link before, so that explains why I didn't know about it. :detective
