Question Portal VS New Posts?

Why is it some new posts show up in Portal and not in New Posts....and vise versa?

When I look in Portal I see all the threads with the latest posts ordered chronologically. Ones I have not read are in bold, ones I have read are in plain text. When I look in New Posts, any I have read are not listed there.
Since Portal lists them chronologically, a post you have already read and is therefore no longer listed on New Posts may still show up on Portal as read. At the same time a New Post you have not read maybe be several hours old and therefore show up on New Posts but not on the first Portal page. I am sure if you scroll back on the previous pages you will find them there.

Correct, you won't see your own posts under New Posts. They will only show up when someone else posts to them, like I just did LOL.

ooooh I see now! I was thinking that new posts showed EVERYTHING chronologically and portal was almost the same but a shortened version.

Thanks for clearing that up for me Maverick!

Today's Posts show everything in the same format as the Portal as Maverick described. Ther difference is that it will always show the last 24 hours of posts.

Portal seems more "sensitive". I can see a new reply to a thread in Portal that is not showing up under New Posts yet.

Just another thought. Your browser can "play tricks " on you. If I post and use "back" on the browser to get back to the portal, sometines (I work on a few different computers through the day) the portal does not show the thread that I posted on at the top. If I refresh, it then orders correctly. that is not a site issue, but, a thing with your computer / browser.

It seems though, that if I back out of the forum and come back in, they do showup in the forum general list and new posts. No?
