So a feature that I see on other boards that is extremely helpful is a link that takes you to the first post in a thread that I have not read.

Here is the situation:

I haven't been to the forums in a few days and when I click on the Recent Topics link, I see someone has posted a new post to the Hugelkulture thread. There is a link that will take me to the last post in the thread, but it seems that the new activity actually started two days ago and I now have to scroll back through a page or two to find out where the new discussion has started.

Other sites often have a link in the Recent Topics search results that takes me to the last post I read in the thread plus one: That is the newest post that I have not yet read.

Can we get this feature on this site? It would make reading post a whole lot easier!

Thanks!

The developers of the forum software have a list of every feature that we would like to have added - it is currently 123 items long. This particular feature was reported some time ago, and at the time of writing this post, it is at number 28 in the list of things to do. All the forum developers are volunteers, so it is basically waiting for a volunteer to work on it. We will get to it soon (we hope).

Thanks for the suggestion - please keep posting any thoughts you have on how we can improve.
