New Topics in Highlighted in Discussion Web Part
When you re-visit a forum although the topics are ordered in activity order it is sometimes difficult to tell which have had a reply since you last visited. With Social Squared, any topics that have a new reply since your last visit have their topic heading appearing in bold characters:
As you can see, the top topic is displayed in bold. This means there is something new so I should probably take a look at it. The other topics are in a normal font indicating there has not been an update since I last read them.
Once you have visited that topic and read the posts the topic heading appears in a standard font
If you then navigate away and between now and your next visit another users adds a new reply to that topic, upon re-visiting the topic title will again appear as bold.
