The closest thing I've found to what we had, Ed has pointed out as an option...Where and How?
For the where, go back to Board Index (where the initial URL takes you), go down four lines of text, where two of the options listed are: View New Posts, and View Active Posts.
How to make it like it was? Click on View New Posts. There'll be beaucoup (French for 'big bunch') posts, each with a red icon...red means unread. If you click and open each and every one, you'll have "caught up with old times". From then on out, if you're an every-day-check-all-the-posts-kind-of-girl, all you need to do is Click on View Active Posts, where you can bypass all the 'black icons' (already seen), and Click on any 'red icons' (not yet seen).
It is, to Ed's credit, better, and exactly for the reasons Ed has explained (shadow structure)...try it, you'll like it!
