"New Posts" is now "Latest Topics"
The New Posts section lists the topics which have been updated since the user's last visit to the forum. In cases when a user briefly visits the forum and still has many unread topics, the New Posts section will show that there are no updated topics since the user's last visit. While that's true, it means that now the user has to inconveniently browse through each forum separately to view the latest unread topics in each forum. Also, some users confuse the New Posts link as the link for creating a new post.
To address these issues, the New Posts section has now been changed to Latest Topics. The Latest Topics section lists the most recently updated topics from all of the forums regardless of when the user last visited the forum.
