Below the list of forums there are two additional pieces of information:

  1. Posts Indicators. These colored circles indicate the color of the forum icon in available forums as follows: When there is a New posts (topic or comment), the icon for that forum will be blue to indicate there is a new topic or comment. When you read the topics/comments in that specific forum and then return to the forum home, the icon will turn grey to indicate it has been read.

    Also included on this line is your ability to mark all forums as having been read. Simply click Mark As Read and everything (all unread topics and comments) will be considered read and the page will be refreshed to show you that happened.
  2. Statistics. On this line, you can see the total of all Topics, Posts, Views, Users and number of Online users.

Navigation Breadcrumbs

The line below the top navigation bar links is known as a “navigation breadcrumb“. It serves two purposes:

  • It tells you where you are in the forum. In this example, you are in the topic Lost Dog near Ballinger Bottom that is in the forum Village Forums: Lost and Found
  • You can click any of the labels to go to that part of the forum. So, in this example, you can click on:
    • Lost Dog near Ballinger Bottom (which is meaningless because this is where you are)
    • Village Forums: Lost and Found which will take you to that forum showing a list of topics
    • Overview which will take you to the forum ‘home’
