    Viewing First Unread post?

    I know if you click on the blue circle in a thread title it is suppose to take you to the first new post since you last visited the thread. However it is not working for me. When I select this it takes me to the last post. I can click the blue circle on a thread I have never even read and it will go to the last post in that thread. Just a little frustrating as I have several forums I like to check before heading out each day. Maybe I am doing something wrong?
    Thanks

    The blue circle is set up to take you to the last post, if you hold your cursor over the circle it says something to the effect of "Go to last post".

    there are 2 blue buttons. the one next to the title should bring you to the newest post. the one next to the name of the last post should bring you to the last post

    Unless he's talking about the one at the top left of the thread page itself. When I cover that one with my cursor it says "View first unread" in the pop-up.

    Too many buttons, I misread his question.

    So do we know which blue button he's talking about?

    I can say I have just tested the View First Unread and it is working for me. I use Firefox 2.0.0.11.

    Ok I think I know which blue circle he is referring to. I tested the one after you open the thread. When you view the thread list there is a blue circle to the left of the thread title if there are new posts in the thread.

    I just tested that one and it is working properly for me. Again Firefox 2.0.0.11
