Front page link to new posts

I'd like to make a request for jmarc about something that has been bugging me for years. On the front page there's a list of recent posts and when you click on one of those posts you are linked to the forum topic but you start at page 1. Can you change it so that you are linked to the first unread post similar to the button in the forum? That would make things a lot faster to check for new posts since I find myself always having to switch to the last page of a longer thread and search for the new post.
Thanks


Have a happy day!

Re: Front page link to new posts

If you press the button under "last post", doesn't that take you to the first unread post?

Re: Front page link to new posts

Does that last post button really link to the first unread post? I thought it links to the last post, which means there could be 100 new posts above.

I can't test this at the moment, cause there are not enough unread posts smile


Have a happy day!

Re: Front page link to new posts

the link "Last post" should go to Last Post like in forum view,  and I could add "New post" that goes to new post like in forum too.

it's a light forum, the link "New post"  goes to new post since your last visit.
But your last visit is not really your last visit... date/time of your "last visit" is reset when you logout or you are inactive for 1 hour.
So, if you refresh a page every 59 minutes, your last visit is never reset, and the link "New post" still goes to same post

I agree, it's a weird behavior. When I began to work with this forum, I didn't understand how it works for long time, also to explain you in my poor english, it's very hard...


you can see your last visit on top/left of all page:

Re: Front page link to new posts

hmm, ok, clicking on the link below "last post" seems to do what I wanted. So all these years I've simply been clicking on the wrong link hmm big_smile.


Have a happy day!

Re: Front page link to new posts

yes, a new post continues to be "new" until you read it or you "Mark as read"
Not based anymore on your "last visit"
