I’ve asked about this a few times in the feature request thread but it has become muddled with too many discussions. Why can we not jump to new posts from the forum view like every other forum. You can do it from the pulse page but I browse by sub-forum for topics that interest me; I don’t want to browse every new post/review/blog/project/video on the forum all at once. It appears to simply be CSS so it should be an easy improvement and there is no downside to anyone who wouldn’t use it.

I second this. Like every other forum, the page numbers should be displayed under the thread title. Also nice would be the last person to post in the thread, as well as listing the time/date someone posted. I don’t know what 300 days ago was.

Rick, why not just click on “SHOW ALL FORUMS,” right next to Start a New Topic & View unanswered topics.

I have the FORUM page saved in my favorites, then click on “Show all Forums,” to view topics.

This is what I’d like to see added to every forum.

Couple of reasons why: When browsing forum topics, the page is populated mostly by the most active threads and “Off-topic content. Click to see the post.” threads. So I like to look through the subforums that interest me most like woodturning, hand tools, etc. to see those topics. Some of them I read but don’t want to bookmark, but I do want to see if any new posts have been made. I think this is the only forum I use where you can’t jump directly to the first new post from the forum view.
