Default The best way to bookmark this site!

instead of going to the home page, This: https://www.gmforum.com/

Go to this page : https://www.gmforum.com/search.php?do=getnew&exclude=128,129,130

That will take you straight to the new posts every time.

Good tip Trent. As long as the new posts page hasn't reset that should save a click.

You can go directly to the NEW POST button at the top of the page and then bookmark that page when it loads. The URL is https://www.gmforum.com/search.php?searchid=238967

This URL string has an exclude expression in it and will not pull in ALL new posts.

Good tips, but I guess a preference thing. I like to load the normal and scan through the page. Just a habit and I'm a habitually kind of guy. LOL

If you do that then it will go to that times new posts and not show and new posts after that, the link I gave will give the new posts at the current time and every time you go to it, it will include new posts.

Trent; The URL with the expression of 'do=getnew&exclude=128,129,130' excludes searching for new posts in the forum sections of 128, 129 and 130 and has nothing to do with time.

Section 128 =
https://www.gmforum.com/a-128/
Section 129 = https://www.gmforum.com/a-129/
Section 130 = https://www.gmforum.com/a-130/

So, you won't get any new posts posted in the Buy Sell Trade Area and E-Bay Market Place with your URL string. Which may be fine for some.

Okay i got ya, but the link you gave it a static link. It will always show the posts that were new for search ID=238967, the one I gave a dynamic link to all new post at that the time you clink the link, with the exception of those three categories that are excluded, if you hover over the new posts link at the top of the site, the link it the exact one that I gave in my first posts, but if you click that link it will take you to a page that is time specific to when the request for new posts was given.
