Default to "view unread posts"

Feature Requests

Found 9 posts - Go to Last Post


After visiting the deals thread I remembered my two asks.

1. Can we default to view unread post when I open a thread?
2. Can you lock the header and nav bars at the top of the page so when I open a 100 post thread, I don't have to scroll for days to get back up to my button?
YES! And can we fix the issue with marking a thread as read never updating where your first unread message is?

This is probably TMI, but I often check the site while in the water closet and my signal isn't that great so it's slow to load the pages. In this scenario, it's slow to load pages and the "view unread" is a separate page. So I...

  1. view unread
  2. wait for page load unread list
  3. open thread 1
  4. wait for page load top of thread
  5. click view unread
  6. wait for page load down at unread
  7. hit the back button
  8. wait for page load back to top of thread view
  9. hit back again
  10. wait for page load unread list again
  11. if there any unread, go to step 3.

That's what I have to do to navigate my unread messages. I'd prefer to remove a lot of those unnecessary page loads.

There's a previous, next thread at the bottom too... That must do something important. I open a bunch of tabs at once and handle it that way.

Okay so I've tried to start using the suggestions above, but have been having mixed results. The ^Top works well, that's a nice shortcut, but the button back on the listing that takes me to latest unread is very persnickety. Most of the time it works, but sometimes, and I haven't been able to figure out the use case here, it gets 'stuck' at a particular response in the thread and each time I return it goes to that one instead of the actual last read message. I believe it is something to do with me sometimes using the in thread button to view unread and sometimes using the shortcut on the listings.

Hope that helps.
