Yup I like it Craig! I used to use the home key to do this but sometimes it's handy..

Love it and have been hoping for something like this for some time. Very handy if you frequent the 'Alerts' box at the top of the page.
Thanks Craig :thumbsup

clap2.gif As someone that reads a lot of threads, I LOVE THIS FEATURE! Saw this as soon as it showed up and thought it was a new Safari feature. Then I noticed it on Firefox as well. Thank you Craig! clap2.gif

Saves reaching for Ctrl-HOME all the time like I do with other forums. Like it.

I love it too! I was going to post an observation, comment, opinion, whatever it is, on this forum until I saw this thread. I was going to say that as much as I like it, it seems counterintuitive to have it at the bottom instead of the top where I want to go. However, as I can see here, all the positive posts, it is just me.;em No one else thinks so. So, I withdraw my observation.

Kinda late now. ;lol
Oh, come on Rick, the politicians do it all the time==c . So do lawyers when they are objected to....."I withdraw my question" ;) It's a tactic, you get to say what you wanted and then apologize for it.;lol

Ah...of course. Way too long long since I saw my last Perry Mason episode, I guess. ;lol

Why does a page that I have never visited before always automatically scroll to the last (bottom) post? I am constantly having to go back to the top to read the first post. This button helps but is there something set wrong in my preferences?

Hmm that's strange. If I click on a thread I've never viewed, even with 20 posts in it, I still start at the top. Just looked in the preferences and didn't see anything. Do you have a different browser to try and see if the same thing happens?

It will do that if you click on it on the right on the main forum page. It is taking you to the most recent post in that forum that way. If you open the individual forum and then click on the thread title it will take you to the last unread post in the thread.

I still go to the last post even when I open the individual forum and then click on the thread title.

I went to the "Woodshed" Forum and clicked on "First Wood" (I never visited this thread) and it took me to the LAST post when using Internet Explorer.

I just tried it with FIREFOX and now it works! Internet Explorer seems to be the problem.

Try clearing the cache in IE.

It worked! Thanks Pen. I had to uncheck "Preserve favorite website data" before deleting cookies.:)

Great addition, especially since the link to the sub-forum no longer appears at the bottom of the page as it did before.

Hey! I remember that button from the old forum. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear in the new Edge browser that comes with Win10.

Also, CTRL-Home doesn't work in Edge. Only way I have of reaching the top of the page is to grab the mouse and manually scroll up.

I haven't been around much this summer, but it looks like the forum got another facelift...very nice. And now there's a link at the bottom of the page back to the refreshed forum, which I really missed before. Very handy! :cool:
