Find new posts in thread

Postby Talar » Wed Feb 20, 2013 11:03 am

When you have a forum thread flagged as having new posts, is there a way to go directly to the first new post?

Clicking the new post icon doesn't do anything.

The newest post is featured on the right side. Beyond that you can click on the "View unread posts" link near the top of the board index to list all unread posts in all subforums, or click on the subforum name. Posts are sorted by time.

I am not seeing a way to view the newest unread post, which the original poster here requested. I don't see exactly what you mean. Could you clarify?

What I currently do is click on "view new posts", then for each post I'm interested in I click on the latest page, hoping that it contains the posts I want to read. I then scan that page trying to find the last post I read and then I read on from there.

What I would like is a button that will automatically take me to that first unread post that I searched for above.

When you open a thread, there is a link near the top right (a bit lower than the thread title) that will bring you to the first unread message in the thread. (For example, I have this at the top right "First unread post • 3 posts • Page 1 of 1".)

You can open several threads in several tabs (use middle-click to open a link in a new tab), and then you can click on each thread's "First unread post" link.

I tried that and it worked great. Thanks!
