Question on new posts. In the older format, when I clicked on a thread with new posts, I went to the last comment. Now when I do it on the new site, it takes me to the first post on the first page, despite a thread being several pages long.

Is there a "mark posts read" button? I thought I saw one the other day, but I don't now. Thanks.

Good question :)

If you click on the subject, it will send you to the beginning of the topic. But you have a little icon right before the title that will take you to the first unread post. It's a little page icon on the blue style, or a little arrow on the latte style.

I've attached screenshots:

The mark read links won't appear in any of the search pages. New posts, Unread posts, Active posts, etc. are considered like a search.

The links appear on all the standard forum views:

So
  • If you are on the main page, the links are on the right for the blue style, on the top left for the latte style.

  • If you are on a sub-forum page, the links are at the same place, but they will only mark all the topics of the current forum read (instead of everything).

P.S. I'm glad I've tried Evernote to take screenshots and annotate them, it's perfect for the job :D
