Mark all topics read?
I have recently found this forum.. and every topic is new, naturally. Is there a way to mark them all as read, so that I can tell which topics have new material / responses?

Afraid not. But the 'new' tag seems to still work ok. The number of views of a topic has also been broken for many months and might not be working properly.
The truth is that this site is not overly active (the same fate as all GPS dedicated sites actually) so maintenance of the software is not a high priority by the poers that be.
If you go to
do the trick for you.

Sorry Tim. That link just brings you back to this thread.
, yes, it should bring you back to the place you were previously at after marking all topics as read.

It would be helpful if that link were a button on the menu where one could use it at will. Or..perhaps easier to implement in a sticky.
It is available per category by clicking the gear icon and site-wide in the menu bar. The whole feature was disabled for quite some time as it caused some performance issues.
Frankly, I kind of dislike the feature as it does (and promotes) the opposite of what most people really want. Most people want to see posts new since their last visit highlighted. (That isn't a feature we have here.) Marking something read that you didn't read achieves a similar goal, but is a bit backwards.
Kind of like sorting a book you don't want to read into a box of books you have read to get it out of you're "haven't yet read" box.
