    Default 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?
    I worked for everything I have. Most successful people have done the same thing.
    No, you aren't "entitled" to it. Too damn bad, Get it the way I did.
    WORK FOR IT.

    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 is what you need.
    Do we ever grow up or just learn how to behave in public?

    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...
