    viewing the last post of a thread

    this is a support question, but it is about the forum, so i figure it belongs here.

    i want to view the last, or maybe the first unread, post, of a specified thread. is there a way to modify a thread URL to view the last post? i tried &p=-1 but that just went to the start of the thread and showed me the page with the first post.

    what i am trying to do:

    i am trying to set up an icon that starts firefox for this site with a few URLs that create tabs with a few going to the last post of various threads. going to the first unread post would be just as good, if that is possible.

    My Firefox link goes to this:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/search.php?search_type=1
    And I have saved in Search "oldfred"
    So I only get posts where oldfred has posted and those that are bold are new threads. If multiple pages I do have to click on last page.

    Code:
    &goto=newpost
