Feedback: Clicking on a thread takes you to the last page instead of first

Post by Hushpad » May 2nd, 2015, 5:40 am

I noticed when I click on a thread that has more than one page, it automatically takes me to the very last post on the last page within that thread. But I think it should load the first post within the thread to insure important information isn't missed.

All I have to do is click and scroll up, so it's just a suggestion, but I think it would better to start at the beginning if it's possible to put it back that way.

p.s. if this is just a setting I need to change please let me know and I'll correct it

This is a great idea Hushpad, thank you for your input. I'm not 100% on how to set this up for us however I will look in to and then include it my next group of updates if possible.

Thanks!

Threads already have this behavior for me when clicking on them from inside a forum - they load the first post of the first page when I click on the title. It's only if I click on the link under last post (both in the forum and on the front page) that it takes me to, well, the last post in that thread. I'm not sure that this is behavior that needs to be changed? Or maybe it's set funny for certain groups - I can't be sure.

I see now - Ivrae is correct here.

When you click the post from the "topics" section it takes you to the original post.

When you click the post in the "last post" section it takes you to the last response.

This is intended behavior and it does not vary between groups/ranks. I have checked this cross-browser and it appears to be working correctly.

Another thing to consider are your display options. I think the solution for this topic is what has already been discussed, however there are some options you can set to change the display order of topics and posts as well. For example if you wanted the most recent post to be first in your list, etc.

Also, there is one other "clicking" option when there are unread items in a thread. If you click on the tiny icon it will take you to the first unread post (as opposed to either the first or last post).
