Just some thoughts which I will be happy to see corrected if wrong (particularly since I will be the first beneficiary). I’m sure some of this is stated much more clearly elsewhere in the forum but I wasn’t smart enough to find it.
Logically, assuming you are logged in, one would go to the “View New Posts” button when one enters the Forum to see posts subsequent to last visit but I suspect this means that if you omitted to see some posts on yr last visit this is just bad luck.
Alternatively (and unavoidably if you are not logged in), one can go to the “Today’s Active Topics” which gives you everything but within a daily timespan only. I invariably find posts in this which I missed from first option above (or I forgot the VNP button was there.)
It would be nice if there was a Google type option where you could see listed posts from 1,2,3, days back etc but the bandwidth is presumably excessive.
Thirdly, if you wish to be adventurous, can try “The Last Click’ and see what other people are reading. Viagra used to be the clear winner but seems to have lost its attraction these days. (Maybe some GMOs have other side-effects.)

PS For archive type details, the search button is there of course but the new upgrade has slightly downgraded the accessibility of this function IMO since, I think, you now need to do more button pressing to get at things.
