"Last Page" option...

Post by JMG » Mon Apr 10, 2017 5:16 pm

Another forum I'm on has the option to click "last page" instead of opening up a thread and then navigating to the last page. Is that doable for us here?

In the column labeled 'Last Post' it has the name of the last poster and the date/time of the post. It also has a small icon (which after our last upgrade was invisible to me for a while, but still present). If you click that icon it takes you to the first post that you've not read (or marked as read).

ETA: If you've read everything, it just takes you to the end.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

I always use the New Posts page which shows you all of the threads from all of the forums which have recent activity. Just to the left of the thread title is a tiny icon that looks something like a red paper with the corner folded. Ctrl+click that icon should open it in a new tab at the first post you haven't read yet. Just leave the New Posts page open and refresh it whenever you want to see what's new.

Somewhere there is a preference you may select that causes the thread to appear in reverse order when you open it. I set mine thusly years ago.
Ergo, when I open a thread, the last post is at the top, the second to last is just below and so forth.

It's not pipe and/or Christian related if that makes you feel any better...?

You'll wind up with a herniated testicle doing that.

There are a few ways to skin this cat. Do you see the page number icon(s) shown on the right side of the column with the title of each thread? Click on the highest numbered page.

From your Com-puter, hover your mouse pointer over that background, right-clicky it and select 'Show Background' or 'View Background Image' or whatever sounds right.

Simple!
