View Full Version : How to read the latest "unread" message first?

When viewing a topic that I have already visited, I like to go to the latest "unread" message first.

How do I set up my profile for that to happen?

Just click on New Posts

If you have cookies enabled you should normally see a "View first unread" button at the top of each thread. Clicking on that should take you to where you were last.

Without cookies, scones, pikelets or other culinary delights, just use the right hand "Lat Post" column. Click on the right arrow corresponding to the thread you are interested in and you'll get the last unread posting. Don't click the "Last Post" : it is singularly useless.

THIS (http://www.diggerhistory.info/sound/last_post.wav) is what you need.

More info about what that is, please.

Bearing in mind the current "exploit" warnings, this is hardly the time to dive blindly into unknown downloads, surely?

Don't be too paranoid Laura ... that is obviously a recording of the "Last Post" tune. That's a subtle joke. ;)

Sorry Ex-Westy & thanks, Graham.

Yes, obviously getting paranoid today.

My only excuse is the tiredness which stopped me actually reading the file name before I posted.
It is quite entertaining...
