Default "New Posts" and forum filter?

When I log in, I usually hit "NEW POSTS" at the top to see the posts since I last logged in. Is there a way to filter the forums displayed with "NEW POSTS"?

You can almost do this with Advanced Search and saving the search, but it also wants keywords or usernames, whereas I'd like every post in the forums I select, since I last logged in.

why not just click "active topics" instead?
Chronological order covering every forum.
I have that as my home page.

At the very bottom of the page is a menu of 3 choices with the version you are in, the mobile view, and the classic version that I started out with. Try the classic version and see if it addresses your desires.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I stay logged in 24/7 for about 10 forums in different tabs for woodworking and Luthiers and hit 'New topics' on every one of them, including this one. That keeps me from having to dive down into the different forums. Matter of fact, I seldom know which forum I'm actually in because the topic is what interested me. If I am looking for something specific then I'll go to that particular forum/subforum or do a search.

Just my $0.02 on how I navigate, ymmv.

Sorry folks, I see now that my question was worded very poorly.

Say that I only want to see posts in the "Site Help and Suggestions" and "General Routing" forums, when I press "New Posts" (or "Active Posts"). But I don't see any settings like this. The closest is that I can search these 2 forums under "Advanced Search", and even filter it to "Find new posts...since last visit", but I'm forced also to enter search strings or usernames.

.. By the way, Chuck, I do like the look and feel of classic, better.

So do I Rob. I find it much easier to see what has changed since I was last on the forum which is usually every few hours for me.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
