    Originally a Title was preceded with a dot. Click on the Title and you would go to the first post in a thread. Click on the dot and you would go to the first unread post in the thread.

    This was changed (for the better) ... no dot ... click on the Title you would go to the first unread post in the thread.

    Right now it is changed again (for the worse) ... no dot ... click on the Title you go to the first post in the thread.

    Very painful at the moment.

    Seems to work fine for me? Tried using xscope and naked browser and I'm being taken to the first unread post without exception.

    I cleared cache in Internet Explorer. There is no option presented to position to the first unread message that I can find anywhere.

    This problem just started within the last hour.

    I just tried Firefox and got the same result.

    (I have to stop to get ready for a meeting ...)

    I'm not sure what the deal is. I've tried on 2 mobile browsers and I'm being taken to the last unread in a thread and when I tried on my desktop PC, I'm seeing the dot at the side of the thread title.

    Anyone else?

    It sounds like you marked the forums read.

    Working OK for me. I made a post about this awhile ago - Thom is it not working for every post, or do either of these conditions apply:

    "I've noticed there is a time limit for the site adding /unread/ to a thread, but I'm not sure how long it is. For example I think it happens in both cases:

    1. You read an entire thread
    2. No one posts to it for a couple months
    3. Someone posts
    4. Clicking thread title doesn't have /unread/ and goes to first post

    A. You read an entire thread
    B. People DO keep posting to it but you stop reading that thread
    C. After a couple weeks or a month the /unread/ in the URL disappears.

    My guess is the sites database only keeps track of how far you've read for a certain time for efficiency. As you mentioned is doesn't apply to the Watched Forums page."

    I am back from my meeting (6 hours later). I just went to nay forum and clicked on any thread title and it took me to the first unread message.

    It is back to normal. (The preferred normal.)

    Whatever the problem was earlier today is now gone.
