    Clicking on "Go to first unread post" is shooting me to the last post in all threads...even threads I've not read any posts in before...anyone else notice this or is it my beer?

    Ive always used that to go to the last post. It is interesting how it says "first unread post" though. :)

    Seems to work here, tho I blame jelsoft if it is bust :)

    posts are considered new if they have appeared since your last action as your last action is timestamped in the database, you don't have to have read a thread for it to dissappear as an old post.

    I'm not sure if I understand that, but I think I do. So the link should be titled "Go to the first unread post after your last action even if it's not the first unread post"?

    OK, OK, I understand. But it is misnamed. I think I want my subscription fee back!
