    View first unread

    Is it possible to get some kind of button or link at the top of a thread that will take you to the first unread post? That would be helpful to have in some of these long threads. I'm a part of another vBulletin forum where they have that option, so I know there's some way to do it.

    When you're looking at a list of threads, the "down arrow" icon next to the thread title should take you to the first unread message.

    It's the biggest thing at the top of the thread, and I never even noticed it. Wow!

    That should take you to the last post - regardless of it's read/unread status

    It was Monday - more than enough of an excuse
    Death was standing behind a lectern, poring over a map. He looked at Mort as if he wasn't entirely there.
    You haven't heard of the Bay of Mante, have you? he said.
    'No, sir,' said Mort.
    'Famous shipwreck there.'
    'Was there?'
    'There will be', said Death, 'if I can find the damn place.'

    Hehe! Don't feel bad; it took me about a year to notice it too. Before that time I just suffered through the carpal tunnel scrolling to the bottom of the page each time.

    Yeah, but I've been here almost 7 and a half years and I never noticed it.
