Topic tags/keywords: navigation

I read this site everyday, and comment occasionally. I have learned a lot and been inspired by others here.
One thing I can’t figure out, is how, when the top 5 forum posts are displayed on the main page, do I navigate DIRECTLY to the latest post.

I have avoided reading some of the posts, like Stumpy Nubbs and such, because it starts at the first post and I have to navigate pages to get to the last post.

help please!! I know I must be missing something about the buttons or links

Thanks
David

You can’t….. You have to pull up the topic you want to read, and scroll all the way to the bottom to see the last post….I know it sucks, but that’s the way it is….!!

All you have to do, after the page loads, hit your browser’s refresh and the page reloads to the last page of posts in the topic. Easy peasy.

That works to a degree, but he said he wanted to navigate directly to the LAST post on the page….You can’t do it..You still have to scroll down to the last post.

If you have been to the topic before, when you go in at the top it says x new replies. Click on that and it will take you to the new replies since you were in the post last.

And if it says 4,000 new replies he reads them all?

Only solution I’ve found is scroll to bottom of page, click view all replies, if needed, click the link to last page and then scroll to bottom to see latest post. Next visit, the number of new replies should be reasonable number unless it’s topic like Stumpy Nubs and you haven’t visited it in over 3 hours or so…

Have your say...
