Marking posts read

I’m back here after a few years away. I know I used to be able to mark posts on the discussion boards read. Like cost went back to 2016. How do I clear history and start with new posts?

Hi, elizasmith. On a board by board basis, you can just click on the last number in the upper right corner (next to the green GO button). That will take you to the most recent post on the board, which will effectively market it as “caught up”. Note, however, that if you are reading in threated mode, the most recent post is not necessarily the last post.

If you go to, you can click on the MARK ALL READ button at the bottom of your Favorites list and all those boards will be marked as read.

There is also an option on the Favorites & Replies page to mark all boards as read:

Lastly, if you are Premium Service subscriber, you can go to the Premium Community page at and mark individual boards as read.

Who notes this doesn’t clear your history but it can help you get current…
