    "New Forum Posts"

    Kelly, is it possible to have a link to the last post in the thread instead of the Forum?

    "Last Post By CCR5600Design (3 replies)
    Today, 10:22 AM in Engineering Main Forum"

    Could that be...
    Last Post By CCR5600Design (3 replies)
    Today, 10:22 AM

    Or...
    Last Post By CCR5600Design (3 replies)

    Yes, that functionality is already here. When you first enter a thread there is a link toward the top-middle just above the first post called "First Unread ...".

    That will take to the "First Unread ..." of the thread according to your account.

    Yup, saw that but I often just scoot in here to see if there are any new posts without logging in.

    The old system would show all posts since my last visit regardless of logging in or not. After logging in it would show the actual posts that were new to me since the last log in.

    In both cases I could jump to the last post for each thread.

    Not against change per se, but being a basically lazy old fart, I like the software to work for me rather than vice versa. Mouse clicks are like heartbeats. You only get a finite amount and when you run out, the device (??) is dead.

    Well, this software is like the bridge on the original Star Trek Enterprise. Lots of knobs, buttons and flashing lights..

    I'll play around and see what I can do to ease the button clicks.

    I'm in and out this week so be patient with me..

    Thanks Captain Kirk, er, sorry, Captain Kelly, not in any great rush. I am sure I will survive wasting a few clicks. Just like to keep you busy.
