Is it me or there is no way to easily check for new posts on this forums ? No indicators, no "new posts from last visit" page.
It's a real issue because it doesn't help at all regular members to come back, follow the forum's activity and follow up to posts.
i was looking for the same thing - in fact it's quite cumbersome having to visit each forum to check for new posts (although most are in the 'general questions'...)
an overview page containing the posts from _all_ forums would be nice - or some sort of rss feed
but a new release of the forum has been announced - maybe it contains features like these?
http://silverstripe.org/forums/rss - the links to topics are currently broken, but once this issue is fixed this is the best way to keep on top of updates. Each ForumHolder and Forum has an rss method.
