New Posts over Multiple Pages

Post by pee wee » Fri Jul 07, 2017 9:25 am

When I log on to look at new posts, I use the Quick links and select "new posts". From that list I click on the small orange square and am taken to new posts. What isn't working right is that (and to make things interesting, I think this isn't every thread) if the new posts begin on one page and run onto another, I'm taken to the first new post on the last page instead of the first new post. One thread that I've identified as consistently behaving this way is the ST21 Hybrid Powered "Skinnydip" Noosa Australia. This is true for several other threads, if it will help I'll try to identify others.
Edit: I see the Anyone Fishing? thread also behaves that way.
2nd Edit: next day and Anyone Fishing didn't behave that way, but ST21 thread still did.
I'll start reading the new posts and realize they don't make sense, I've missed something. I then back up a page, or sometimes two or three to find the real beginning of the new posts.

I thought it was just me!

Are you using apple devices? I'm asking because I think I've seen one of mine "refresh" a page or two in the background when I wasn't using it. This is an apple "feature" that I need to look into...

No Apple in my situation, I'm using Windows 10 on a laptop.

Well then... I guess I'll just wait for Jamie to comment.

I use the same feature and haven't noticed an issue...although I'll pay attention now.

I'm mostly on an android based device.

Okay, not sure if this helps, but after you click a topic in "New Posts" there should be a link at the top right of the page (under the main header) that says "First Unread Post" that should take you to the first page with unread posts under that thread. There isn't really a whole lot in the way of settings for the quick links options, and it's mostly just built into the board software.

I see that and it does seem to work, but it's another step. I thought the purpose of the little orange icon was to take you to the first unread post in a thread.
