    I like the idea of being able to go directly to the first new post in a thread....

    However can you either change the "Go To First New Post" to a small icon? Or at least move the link to the right of the thread title and shrink the font down dramatically?

    The current setup really borks the readability of the topics. Most forums typically have a small right-arrow/pointer following after the thread topic.

    The little down arrow by the title? That's pretty small isn't it?

    You should see this image: [​IMG] every time it says 'Go to first new post'. I guess you're probably seeing the alt text.

    Yeah that's not right.

    What browser? Clear cache?

    I can't make that happen ^^^ "Go to first new post."

    All that's there is a [​IMG], which when clicked causes the first post to appear.

    There is a "go to first new post" pop up on mouseover of that icon.

    According to the urls, mine is the most recent unread button and yours is the last post button. Where'd you find yours?

    Everywhere in the Forums? lol I see what the OP sees. I've never encounter a down arrow before. Can you post a screen shot of it? :)

    The right pointing arrow is located besides the last poster's name, as you can see in the screenshot posted by DenverRalphy.

    Thanks Xyro!!! Now I don't need to scroll from the last post to the last post I read XD that was a bit annoying when I was a couple of days behind. :) That's why I think this place need a (pretty) noob manual on how to navigate through it.
