it takes to attempts on the "Sign IN" button to produce a "+New Post" button today.
What browser are you using?

I guess he has IE6.I have to use IE6 too (company policy, as some expensive software won't work anymore with IE7 installed) adn I often noticed that buttons hide. Thi s is true too for the edit profile button in the user profile. Took me minutes to find out how I can change my profile. I finally found it under teh 'share' and 'RSS' buttons (which I never use and which are absolutely useless on some pages such as the reply page)
nevertheless, the 'New Post' button should be renamed to 'start new thread' as this is what the button does.
I've seen several threads where people started a new thread while they just wanted to add apost to the current thread.Fom a button labeled 'new post' I'd expect to allow me to write a new post to the thread I'm currently in. Not to start a new thread.
Many other forums work this way: you can either write a new post os quote from a given one. Both will write to the current forum. People are used to what they are working with every day, so if an UI differs from the 'usual' expectations, it should be clear what it does. Or be so different that there is no risk of confusion.
For those who are new in this forum, this isn't an issue at all, but those who are new and search for help, will fall into the trap then.

But please do so only if you really cannot do it in a public thread, as I usually read all threads. And I prefer to answer where others can profit from it (or contribute to it) too.
We did an upgrade today, are they showing up now?
The IE6 issue is only going to get worse, understand the need for having to use it, some groups here have the same issues. Our vendor doesnt support IE6 so we have to cover many of the fixes to get core functionality working.
Appreciate the feedback on the naming of new post...I will discuss that amongst my peeps.
Thanks again for your feedback (and for being our only Guru...you rock!)
I have this same issue.
It seems that I need to browse around on the E2E for 5-10 minutes before the "New Post" button shows up.
Very strange. I'm using a corporate laptop with IE 8.0.6001.18702.
Can you take a screen capture? On IE8 you should not be having that problem
Screen capture attached:
There is no forum there to post to, which is why there is not a "new Post" button.
If you click on one of the topics on the top left does it appear then?
Yes, it appears when I select one of the microcontroller topics. I tried initially to make a post after selecting CCS from the "Tags" since my question was generic to CCS and apparently, that is not a valid topic in which to try and make a post. Perhaps that is my confusion...
Does this make sense?
Makes perfect sense...Microcontrollers is a high level topic area...you dont get to forums until you go deeper into the MSP430, C2000, etc forums.
