View First Unread.... Question

Postby SmokeyBear12 » Sat Oct 15, 2016 11:23 am

All the other forums I'm on have a "View First Unread" (or some such) button that sends me directly to the first post in the topic that I haven't read. It's a great time-saver. I haven't been able to find that feature in this forum. Does that feature exist and how? Thanks

The first unread button is just to the left of the thread title. It kinda looks like a page with the corner folded over.

Thanks

Thanks for you help friends. Now a simply curious question. What does the circle with scrolling lines in it mean? :oops: :NC

I was wondering about the scrolling lines as well. :)

Under the word topic, left most edge are circles with horizontal lines.

Red circles are one you have not read/opened yet.

Blue circles are ones that you have read/opened. I am not sure if read items turn to not read if new responses are added. This is most likely the case as you can view new posts and you see the same topic over and over again as more responses come in.

Red or blue circles with a star in them -- you have responded to.

Red or blue circles with the scrolling text are "hot" topics -- not sure if it is volume, rate of change or how recent changes were or some combination of all three.


In FireFox, right click over the icon and select "inspect element" to see the names of the icons -- somewhat self examinatory
