icons on the left side of the page...whats the significance?

Postby toolmaker » Tue Nov 19, 2013 12:42 pm

they are round, some are red and some are blue, some have scrolling lines , and some have the asterisk( which I know to mean I am subscribed to that thread)

what does the colors designate and what does the scrolling designate?

thanks

Solid red means unread posts. As you said the small red star means you have posted in that thread and I am not sure on the scrolling lines

I'm color blind so I can't help with colors, but I'm pretty certain the scrolling lines means it is considered a hot topic with a lot of posts, possibly in a certain time frame.

I always thought it meant that someone else is viewing the thread.

I think it means multiple pages

HE is talking about the square on the right side. Where it tells you who posted last and when. It is a small square with a arrow.

if you're on a laptop/desktop, the red square is immediately to the left of the thread title. clicking on it takes you to your first unread post in that thread without opening the thread first. saves a step.

scrolling lines means that the thread has multiple pages. once you read all the new posts, it turns blue. the small yellow box you can click on and it will take you to the next unread post in the thread.
