How to read only new posts on threads I've already read

I hope I'm explaining this clearly. Once I have read all the posts on a thread, particularly on a lengthy thread, I would like to be able to open the thread once there are new posts, and not have to slog through all of the already read posts. Other message boards work that way (i.e. Chowhound). Is there a way to do this on Fodor's?

In order for this to work on Chowhound, you have to be logged in as yourself, of course.

Fodors doesn't do that except you can jump to last reply and work up from there.

Thanks for responding newtome. That's what I've been doing (jump to last reply and work up) but it's such an awkward way of reading threads. I'm really surprised (and disappointed).

You can do this on threads on which you've commented. At the top, on the right side of the navy blue banner, click on the line that says,"welcome, NicolettaLuciana." This takes you to a page that shows all of threads on which you've commented. You can click on "view comment" and it will take you to your own comment.

Thanks tenthumbs.

I do wish, however, that Fodor's would make the message boards (forums) more useable by streamlining the process of checking new activity on already visited threads.

Hasn't anyone else ever commented on this? I really am so surprised.
