In progress View posts since last visit link on Homepage not working properly

Post by Elcee on January 22nd 2013, 1:57 am

When you click on the link on the Homepage it takes you to the last post in the thread, not the first of the posts since your last visit. How do I make it go to the first of the posts made since the last visit?

Do you mean the link that says View Posts Since Last Visited?

Yes. When we click on that it goes to that last post posted, not the first one since our last visit which the name of the link implies.

Sorry yes, you're right. But when you then click on the arrow on the right hand side of the listed topics, it should go to the first post since the last visit because that is what always happens in other forumotion forums I've visited.

The last one posted, not the first one posted since the last visit.

It should load the recent one which mean any replies that were made after you logged off. If you are still logged in when a reply is made, but you do not view it, it will not be considered new when you log back on after logging off.

No, that's not happening. One member has a confined timeframe to post and so logs off for days on end. But when she logs back on, the links take her to the last post posted, not the first one posted since she logged off.

When you click on the title of the thread, it does take you only to the first post of the thread.

If you click on this image.

It will take you to the last post of that thread.

This is not happening. Whether you click on the "View posts since last visit" link on the home page, or if you open a thread that has new posts, when you click on the black arrow on the right hand side next to the last poster's name, it goes to the last post posted NOT the first post of all the posts made since you logged off. On other forums when you click on that black arrow on the r/h side it takes you to the first of all the posts you have not read.

We don't want to go to the first post or the last post. We want to go to the first post made since we were last logged on as per the above reply:

He said it should load the recent one. You might have misunderstood his post or maybe we misunderstood your question.

Is everything clarified now?

Are you telling me that there is no link to the last post you read last time you were logged on?

No there isn't. It will take you to the last post of that thread when you click on that small button.

View posts since last visit only shows the threads which have had new posts.

One member swears that when she clicks on the arrow on the right hand side of the topics list that it takes her to the last post she read and not the last post posted. But for most of us it goes to the last post posted.
