Something That Don't Work?

Recommended Posts

"Go to first unread post "

well, it don't, it puts me back at the home page <_< as you can't see what is new while reading I hoped it was going to be a useful way of starting to read where I left off.

Any ideas why it don't work?

Not spotted that feature. Rather neat and seems to work, even with threads that span multi pages.

Certainly doesn't take me to the forum list?

I've tried to hack about settings but have the same problems... I've yet to suss out how to ID the ones I've read but have new posts since I was last in. :blink:

The little envelopes on the left in the forum view are bright for threads with unread messages, faded for threads that haven't got new messages. First unread works for me.

seems to be a reoccuring thing that some things work for some people and other things work for others, I'm confused :blink:

It's weird, the "Go to first unread post" feature works on my pc at home but doesn't work here at work either.

Maybe it's something to do with cookies and the way our company network is set up?

Hmmmm.... Only seems to appear some of the time for me, but it works when it does. On Threds that go over multiple pages, it is there, but on threads that display on a single page it is not.

I have to admit it is the one thing that has slightly bugged me about the new forum. I liked the way the old one took you straight to the new posts on a thread. Nb. Not a complaint, just an observation! :)

Cheers

Since Rob posted this I've been using the 'Goto last unread' icon:

newpost.gif that prefixes thread titles with new replies

and find it very usefull.

Whether the thread fits a page or spans several pages it works fine.

Only used it from the laptop so far but on several networks.

First unread seems to be a bit eccentric - several people have reported that it doesn't work, but unfortunately it works fine for me from everywhere, which makes it kind of difficult to troubleshoot.

Can you post details of the browsers and OS you're using - especially if you've got it working on one machine and not another (post both). Might give me a chance of replicating the problem.

I am using Firefox 1.0.6. on Windows XP SP2

Happens on both the corporate network, and on Broadband at home.

I will try on some different browsers if you would like.

Work is IE6 SP2 and XP Pro.

Home is IE6 and XP Home SP2 with dial-up connection through Wanadoo (if that makes any difference)

The little icon next to the topic comes up as 'Last Unread' on my browser. How do you change it to 'First Unread' - can't find any relevent options anywhere to change it.

Thanks

That does the same as View New Posts though - it doesn't take account of whether you've read them or not.

As an added bonus, whether there are unread posts in a thread or forum is indicated only by graphics, so they tend to get cached and not changed - text would be much better.
