Hi Admin.,

Are you able, and would you, put the latest posts usually residing at the bottom of the page at the top of the page.

Whenever I come to this forum, each time I have to scroll down past the list of topics to read the latest posts and that is mostly what I come here for? :)     bladecar

I didn't know about those arrows.
I always just use the "new posts page"
search.php?search_id=newposts
(or click on the yellow new posts star top right of the main page).
Clicking on links in the new posts page takes you straight to the first unread.

Weeell, we're supposed to have been running new software months ago. But all that fell through with the incomplete translation, and our main fearless admin leader seems to have gotten busy with his day job.

So hopefully the other suggestions will keep you going, till we change it all again Image

Hi, thanks for all the suggestions.

What I thought would be nice is if the posts you see at the bottom of the page, the one's just waiting to be perused from various sections, and waiting to be read, if they were at the top of the page.

That's what I thought would be nice, instead of scrolling to the bottom of the page...where have I seen this before?....

The way I get to the end of the page is the "End" key. This works for me, but might depend on different keyboards, browsers and operating systems (Kensington, Firefox and Ubuntu in my case).

Yes, fair enough, Adverse.

But I'm pretty slack. I drive my ev's and ride my ev's and only peruse the last 7 or whatever at least once and maybe a few times a day. That's how I do it. That's why it occurred to me to try to get what I read at the top of the page.

Evening,

I go into new posts and read the ones that interest me.

In the old forum format I could then select "Mark all as read". Is this available?

Thanks

Excellent!

I was using a sub-optimal URL to get to my unread posts.

And I found your instructions exceptionally clear (notwithstanding the "interesting" numerical presentations:-).

Dyslexic explains it.

Also your "3" was "E" backwards which, I think, would appear ok as a "3".

By total coincidence, my yahoo username is j3ffj which I created yonks ago "just to be different".
