Not going to first unread post?

Recently when clicking on the new posts number for a thread it no longer takes you to the first unread post but to the start of the thread.  Probably related is that unread posts at the end of a thread are no longer highlighted as they were before.

 

Anyone else got this problem?  Any chance of the web master fixing it?

No, goes to 1st unread post when I click on new posts number for a thread or on a its title.

 

Are you sure you have "Jump to first unread post in a topic" ticked in your Preferences?

No such option showing.

 

Edit:  Found it.  It was unticked.  So either it is a new option or the web site unset it by itself.

It's been there ever since I can remember.

Hi @gomezz and thanks for posting.

 

Can you access your settings page, it should be under your username on the homepage.

 

Once there,

  • Access preferences along top menu,
  • Choose Linear ‘Layout’ from sub menu
  • Jump to first unread post in topic is the option you should try 

 

Have you noticed the change all of a sudden? What browser are you accessing the site from?

 

 

Cheers

 

David

Already found the setting. It was unset which it must have done all by itself a week or so back. Using IE11.
