Please fix jump-to-first-unread-post



  • I don't know if there are many people experiencing this - I remember it being mentioned in a thread I took part in a couple of months ago - but I have the following issue:

    When I open a forum or thread, the page jumps to a particular post - however, that is NOT always the first unread post (or sub-topic with unread posts). As a result, I usually have to scroll up and down a bit to manually search for it. For sub-topics, this is quite easy since they're marked blue instead of black - but for an individual thread it can be quite annoying scanning through many posts and trying to remember if I've read them before.

    I remember someone (Pesala or Gwen-Dragon, I think) suggesting I switch to continuous scrolling instead of paged view - but it did it there too! In any case I've switched back to paged view recently as I don't like the not-knowing-where-I-am with the scrolling version.

    So two things:

    1. does anyone else experience this and if so can it be put on a bug-list please?
    2. how about highlighting unread posts blue like you do with topics with unread posts?

    I experence this and already made a comment somewhere but I'm unable to reproduce it or to formulate it in a way usable in a bug-tracker.
    And as a side I have the feeling this is one of many "features" in this new forum software which I simply don't "get" or nobody (beside me and you) is using it.



  • @mossman I use the "infinite scroll" all the time. Usually the last unread post is highlighted, but in some threads, the highlighted post is actually the last read post and in some rare cases (usually in old threads), the highlighted post seem to be picked randomly (or at least I don't get how it works)...

    Well, comments from you and goedl (and some others when I first mentioned it) certainly confirm it doesn't work properly. In that respect, I again request highlighting of unread posts.

    As you may have guessed I wasn't sure whether to post this in forum requests (add better unread highlighting) or forum bugs (forum jumps to the wrong post)... :)
