    When viewing the forum list you see a thread you have been following but did not subscribe to. You want to get to the last post and skip all the stuff you've already read.

    For this example lets use the following as givens...

    You went to the Quick Links button in the top Navigation Bar

    [​IMG]

    From the Quick Links drop down you select Today's Posts

    [​IMG]

    And in our example the following is displayed.

    [​IMG]

    In the Last Post column next to the name of the last person to post is a small icon [​IMG] Click on that arrow icon to go to the last post in that thread.

    You know what would be the coolest thread utility tool not yet invented would be a link option to go to the first post you haven't read in a thread (in threads you've visited before but not subscribed to). For example, if you've read through the first ten posts, but now there are 50 in the thread, the link would take you to post 11 (It could be the "Spinal Tap" link). Probably too hard to do though.

    Done...

    On the left side of a thread title there is an arrow facing down. Click on that pointer and it takes you to the first post after the last post you have read.

    Using the same image from above...note the arrow before the Cam Install options thread.
