This is more of an administrative question. In most bulletin boards/forums one can click on a icon in the index listing that jumps to the first UNREAD message. Is that choice available here somehow so I don't need to start at the beginning and wade through all the messages I have already seen in order to find messages that are new?

 

Thank you!

Hello Dan in Saint Louis,

 

If you want to jump to the first unread message in a topic or thread, click on 'My Settings' at the top right of any forum page.

 

  1. My Settings > Preferences > Linear Layout.
  2. Place a check mark in 'Jump to first unread post in a topic'.
  3. Click Save.

I enabled "jump to first unread" as you diagrammed, and clicked "Save," but when I go back to an old topic I am still shown the first message.

 

I even tried closing my Web browser first and returning to these forums after re-opening, but no cigar,

In the topic you went back to, were all the posts previously read by you?

 

If all messages in a topic have been read, the default action will be to return to the first message. 

 

The 'jump' action will only come into play when there is a new unread message.

Hmm, I guess I cannot test that until a new message shows up in a thread.
