Is there a "go to first unread post" thingy that I'm missing somewhere or is it still in the works?

I checked it again after I logged in and it's working. :blush:

Just clicking on a topic's title should take you to the first unread post.

Actually that isn't working for me, but the little dot before the topic title does.

Ah yes you are right, the pip takes you to the first unread post and clicking the title takes you to the first post.

Furthermore, clicking on the date on the right-most column will take you to the last post in the thread.

What about an email link so you don't have to go searching down the thread the email told you about? now that I'm getting emails they all have the same link to the main forum.

Strange though, Saru indicated this was fixed now?

It worked for my latest email but not until just recently.  It is working now.  Thank you Saru!

Just noticed that # of replies (in a thread listing prior to entering the actual thread) per thread not subforum only shows when logged in, otherwise only # of views shows.

Is this a performance design choice, entice-user-to-go-into-thread design choice, just an arbitrary design choice & part of update, or none of the mentioned? I seem to remember that prior to the update, both # of replies & # of views showed whether logged in or not.

Cheers

Hey mods - I love the new forum layout, and especially the advent of tagging posts.  That's going to make searches much easier.  My one question is whether or not there is going to be a more mobile friendly site?

I like to access UM on my cell phone (a blackberry) and with the new layout it takes me automatically to the last page of each topic... which would be fine if it was a one page topic.  Am I doing something wrong?  

Thank you!

Well spotted,i wasn't aware of that - this is another bug that i'll need to look in to.

Are you using the mobile skin or the regular one ? ( See the "change theme" menu at the bottom left )

Update:
  • Implemented a performance improvement when loading forum sections, these should now load almost instantly.
  • The "view new content" and forum search facilities should also benefit from this change.

Just one little suggestion: can it be implemented that you return to the post you are answering to instead of to the end of the thread? Or better yet, that you can choose whether you want to go to the end or back to the post you are answering?
