Please hubpages - I can't keep track of the Christians v. Mark thread because they are now on page 38 - seriously I go to hubtivity to find the latest post (its usually only been 30 min or so) that's quicker than 10+ clicks to jump to page 36 !
Either that or stop Mark debating religion - lets face it's easier just to change the forum software!
In the "Last Post" column you'll see either how many minutes or hours or days ago the last post was made. It'll be hyperlinked. Click on that and you'll go to the most recent posts.
I do believe it'll take you to the very last post. Some forum software takes you to the first unread post. But punBB doesn't.
The problem with that particular thread is that the last post may be the tenth unread one when I get up each morning!
First unread would be good, but would require storing the data about which ones each of us has read. I have a suspicion that all the threads I don't want to read flashing at me "you haven't read me" may be more irritating than scrolling back through a page or two to find the last unread post.
Lissie, what I do is click the post (right column) rather than the thread (left column). That takes me to the last post in the thread. If I don't recognise the post before it, I go back one page and check the top post on the page before, and just keep doing that until I find the last one I read.

HubPages does not use a flat forum structure but replies are placed underneath the post to which they reply. This means that when a thread becomes huge people can still place posts in the middle of the thread. In other words, the most recent post is not necessarily at the bottom but it could be...

Some of us are encountering an issue in the forum. On the front page, it will indicate that responses have been made since we last participated in a thread, but when we click on the name of the most recent respondent, rather than being taken to that response, we come to the start of the last page...

Now I have nothing against Nincomp, that sweet lil pony who started a wildly successful thread so very long ago-http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/15440#top...But, folks, don't you think we're acting somewhat like lemmings in search of the unattainable cliff without a ledge?Seems to me that we,...
