Tips & Tricks #3: First Unread in topic

Unread post by Roger » Mon Jan 11, 2016 8:49 am

Previous Tips & Tricks can be found in the 'Using the Forum - Tips & Tricks' section.
See: viewforum.php?f=306

Navigation to your first unread post in any particular topic has been made a little simpler than in the previous version. Unread posts in a topic are indicated by the red bubble. In order to be directed to this first unread post, you can click anywhere from the bubble itself to the little arrow as indicated in the below graphic.

In order to navigate to the last post on a topic, click the little arrow next to the posters name at the right hand side of the topic title.

Useful thanks. Works well on the mobile site.


But if I may ask, on a somewhat related issue - What happened to the view all unread posts shortcut on the top of the screen?

I can still access it via a saved link: search.php?search_id=unreadposts
But the shortcut is history?

One really needs the view new AND view unread shortcuts to utilise the forum efficiently.

Thanks :P

p.s. see attachment for previous location of said shortcut.

Good Question Nomie.

Still available here under the Quick Link menu found on the navbar.
