No one has brought this to my attention before. I didn't realize that this wasn't working. Can you show me some examples and tell me exactly what it is doing so that I can look into it further? Thanks Valandar!
1 ) The " Generations / Classics / Universe / Reveal The Shield haul thread " currently has a brown piece of paper icon right in front of the thread title, meaning it has had posts in it since I last looked at that thread. It currently has 89 pages. If I click that brown piece of paper icon, it rakes me to the very first post on the very first page, just like I had clicked on the thread title. This is not what is supposed to happen.
On the other hand
2 ) The "Have you ever came home to this? " thread also has a brown piece of paper icon right in front of the thread title, mening it has had posts in it since I last hit the "Mark Topics Read" link. It only has one page. When I click that link, it takes me directly to post #4 in the thread, as when I last clicked the MTR link it had only three posts - and thus the first unread post in that thread is #4. This IS what is supposed to happen.
This behavious means that unless I am very fascinated in a given thread, I tend not to read threads more than one page long, as it's too much trouble (and I don't usually have much time on these forums) to try to remember which page I had most recently looked at, and then find the first new post by hand.
And, umm... I mentioned this more than once earlier in this thread...
... but I can't find those posts. I KNOW I brought it up right after the changeover to this forum software...
