[Forum] Link to last post should go directly to the last post rather than the top of the thread that post is in.

Recommended Posts

I realise this is something that’s controlled by the website software but I thought I’d mention it in case there was an easy fix.

When I come to the home page of the site I see a list showing the latest post in each forum on the right-hand side of the page.
That seems useful, however, when I click on one it often takes me to the start of the thread that post is in rather than the actual posting.
This means that I need to: first realise that I’m not where I want to be; then press the “Last Page” button (if the thread is multi-page); and then scroll down to the last post.
Also, when I want to go back to the home page (for multi-page threads) I get taken to the start of the first page again and have to click the Back button again.
While this is not a huge amount of extra effort it would be better if it wasn’t necessary.

It would be nicer if it would take me straight to the last post – without an intervening page/scroll – so I can just dip in and out of the latest posts without the extra clicking and scrolling.
I have no idea if this is possible with the current software/set-up but I think it’s something that would be also appreciated by other users.

Click on the dark spot (or the star) on the far left next to the title. The spot (star) takes you to the first unread post, and the star indicates it's a thread you have participated in.

At the end of the thread description is the date/time the last post was posted. Clicking on that date/time takes you to the last post

Everything you ask for is there already I think
