    Option to jump directly to last page of Thread.

    Site suggestion: My normal CF routine is to click on "Forums", then "New Posts".

    When the most recent threads pop up, it would be great to have the option to jump directly to the last page of the thread from the thread list. (instead of having to open the specific thread, then go to the last page).

    I know other forums have this capability and I think it would be a great feature for CF.

    (Unless I'm just missing it somewhere)

    Re: Option to jump directly to last page of Thread.

    You have that - if you look at a thread on the main page, you can click to the last post using the "double arrow" next to the user that last posted.

    Re: Option to jump directly to last page of Thread.

    I have a few options for you:

    1. Off to the left of the thread name when you're in "New Posts," click the blue two-arrow icon. That will take you to the first unread post in that thread. Now, if you'd marked all forums read, it will start after that point, not at the point at which you actually stopped reading (if there were posts in the interim).

    2. The page numbers will be in little boxes off to the right of the thread name. You can click on the very last page if that's what you're actually looking for.

    Yeah, I forgot about the "Last Page" link

    Thank You (and others who provided feedback)!

    Regarding option #2 - it doesn't always have the last page of the thread as an option. I often don't want to (nor have I the time) to start where I last left off, so I want to jump directly to the most recent posts. That's where I thought it would be nice to add a box that would allow you to jump to the last page, regardless of where one last left off reading the thread.

    I think that normally happens when your browser sort of smooshes the link. Like when the name of the thread is long, and it has a lot of pages (or something similar). I don't know vBulletin well enough to know if I'm just making that up, or if it's just a coincidence I noticed.
