I'm on other forums that have this wonderful feature. It's nice when you aren't *exactly* sure where you left off in a 10+ page topic, or a topic that has gone nuts since the last time you visited.

Greetings and Salutations. If you mean a way to jump to the last unread post of a thread, this forum already has that feature. There are two ways I can think of.

1: Subscribe to the topic. When a new post is made you'll receive an e-mail and one of the links will take you to your last unread post.

2: When you're browsing the forums (and logged in), you should see the blue color (at least it's blue on my screen, not sure if the color changes depending on your theme settings) of threads with new posts. In front of the post name, there's a blue arrow with a little page icon. Click on that. That icon will jump to the first unread post. If you hover your mouse over the icon, it should read the same link as the thread with the following at the end: &view=unread#unread

Now, if you mean something else, if you elaborate more (or provide an example) maybe I can help find a solution. Hope that helps. Farewell and safe journeys.

There is such a link on the forum, what color it is depends on your theme.

Go to the Options menu at the top of the page (in the default theme), there's a wonderfully useful little option there that will let you view all posts you haven't read yet.

Ah. Yep, that did it. It's kind of a pain to click when using my phone until I zoom the page, but now I know.

Thanks.
