Hey, when I check new messages, I'm getting an error on the page (error sign shows up in bottom bar of IE). It's causing me to get a list of topics that is not expanded to show the new posts. Anyone else seeing this?

I still see a list of topics rather than new messages under the topics no matter what browser I use. Only the topics with new messages show, but it's different than it use to be. Weird, but I'll live.

Same thing for me. I get a search results topic list instead of messages.

I never use that, I just look for the yellow NEW icon next to a board topic, which lets me know there is a new post since the last time I checked the boards.

I really don't see any relevance to that option other than exploring topic subjects posted beyond the normal 7 day period in the Tree View. This subject got my interest perked a bit so I clicked on 'search new messages'. It listed hundreds of them since I last checked in Jan, 06. I clicked out. I clicked back in and discovered there were no new messages since the last time I reviewed (which would have been just moments ago). It did not display any. So much for using this option as a historical reference. After you have checked for any new messages that become visible, they disappear after you exit.

Well, I liked that option.

No, seriously, I really don't care. I figure out one of the ways you all are describing.
