annoyed by a forum feature

Post by KrokRos » Jan 3rd 2003, 7:16 pm

Hi.
It's probably nothing to be complaining about and there's probably nothing you can do about it but I get annoyed by the fact that:

..When I click in a thread that is more than one page
..and there's new posts in it
..and I click in the first page

== the new posts are marked as read and I don't know which are new anymore. Unless I remember what date/time I last read the thread...and I ususally don't.
----------------
Make it count.

Yeah, sorry, there's nothing we can do about this behaviour. The forum software just saves the fact that you did visit a thread - not which page you actually opened. Just make sure to click always this icon: Image to get directly to the latest posting in a thread.

Too lazy to try, but does that bring you to the latest posting or the latest posting for you (ie the one after your last visit)

Does that make sense?

*grin* Now I had to check for myself - I didn't know it either :-)

Here's how it is:
Image - This one brings you to the first of the latest postings in a thread since your last visit.
Image - This one brings you directly to the very last posting in a thread.
