doesn't work.

Or it it just me?

I'm usiong IE.

When I click the button that I presume is to take me to the newest post, either in the main forum menu (Next to the name of the last person to make a post in that forum, on the right of the forum title row), or in the sub forum menu, next to the thread title, (on the left of the row) I get taken to the very bottom of the thread. Below the post, which is off screen above me.

Obviously this isn't keeping me awake at night, and I know I can scroll back up a little, but doing so begates the point of the button.

Is this the same for everyone? Is it just me? Am I the only one who cares?

Answers on a postcard.

Same for me too - used to work a while ago and then I think there was a forum update and it's not worked since - using IE as well.

Arrow pointing towards a yellow document symbol on the lefthand side of the topic in the list of topics.

Would be nice if it directed you to the last unread instead of the last post like some forums do.

I had the same problem for awhile and posted about it and elsewhere.
I was getting the same problem on all the forum's I visit eventually found it was a page viewer in Firefox once I disabled it :thumbright:

Scruff,
To the right hand side below contact admin.

Are you confusing the symbol on the far left to the symbol to the left of the topic name?

It should actually be labelled as 'View newest UNREAD post in thread', because as soon as you have opened the thread, the symbol closes.

The one on the right, after the posters name takes you to the 'View newest post' whether you have already read it or not.
