It took me a little bit to figure out too, but you just need to click on the time of the last post. it should be in minutes or a date and that will take you to the end.On the old system, when I clicked on NEW POSTS and got the list of threads that had been posted to recently, there was a link that allowed me to jump directly to "first unread" (so, in a mega-thread like "what did you do today..." instead of landing at the most recent one, I'd land 5-20posts back - where I left off a day or whatever ago).
Unless I'm missing it, all I see now is the name of the thread (which lands me at first post)link to the most recent post) and the link to the most recent post. Is there a way to have a link from the list of threads that lands me at "first unread"?
Sorry, I should read that a little closer. Clicking on the link of the topic SHOULD get you to the last unread post as the link actually states that. Try it tomorrow again and see if it fixes itself as I think it might not have carried forward your read/unread history from the old software.I don't want the *LAST* post, I want the *first UNREAD" post.
The JUMP TO NEW hyperlink at the top right of the page gets me there, but my typical browsing is to go to "NEW POSTS", then middle click (open in new tab, but keep me on this page) on all of the threads that look interesting, and land me at the first unread post of each thread.
Unless that's in there somehow (?).
Another request: can we (or you) disable the unread notifications badge ("58" in the image) that shows up in the browser's tab bar? At least, that's what I think the 58 is. I tried to mark all of my PMs as "read", but that didn't move the number.
Personally, I preferred the old look and feel as well, butto be honest Im not impressed by the new look of the new forum. I feel a little lost, maybe Im doing something wrong here, I dont know. The thing that annoys me the most is the threads are not sorted out by date ( newest first) and unread / read , like it was with the old one. Maybe you guys can address this, and it should be OK, thank you
i think the "sticky" needs to be of a different color than the bold ( unread) threadsPersonally, I preferred the old look and feel as well, but
(a) you can't stay running WinXP forever (which is probably in the range of just how vintage the old version was);
(b) if you ever tried to look up a tdiclub thread on your phone....ugh! And phones are the primary computer for a LOT of people now
(c) I similarly had some issues with read / unread and order of threads at first, but it seems to have sorted itself out once I just did a blanket "mark as read" on everything.
The one UI thing I'd like to see improved is some way to denote "Sticky" threads at the top of some boards - the old system very clearly said STICKY; even just a few asterisks or something to show that these are "different" and are apart from the regular chronological ordering would be helpful.
