Start reading the topic from the first unread post
« on: March 25, 2020, 04:00:01 PM »
Hi,

I would like to know if such a modification exists or if anyone can create such a modification.

Currently after entering: Show unread posts since last visit - there is a list of topics and on the right is the icon: Last post



And after clicking this icon moves to the last post. And good, but before this last post there are usually a few more posts that have not been read. I mean, so that I could start reading the topic from the first unread post. And so is there any modification in SMF that e.g. shows the number of all unread posts in the subject?

the only thing SMF can do is the behavior when you click on the [new] icon

Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

@Kindred

Thank you for the information. :) I had no idea that this icon has this function. Is SMF 2.1 the same solution?

@Diego Andrés

I am definitely satisfied with this. :)

Cool 8) in my opinion this function should have its own icon, a different button. So that it would be known that such a function exists. 8) Overall, maybe others know it is so simple, and I didn't know it. :P
