thanks for your reply - not really what I was after, I have no trouble finding threads with unread posts, just going directly to the first unread post in a thread. It's not a big deal just a difference to my normal forum perusing "workflow".
On "other" forums there is usually a link just to the left of the title that will append &goto=newpost
But looking close I see that this board needs "&view=unread#unread" appended to take you straight to the latest unread post. So if in the results view it is possible to add an icon or link to append that to the thread link that would do the job.
It would be nice if the file document could be used for this feature.
As for the community being small, if it is your intention for it to grow that would be great, because it is actually refreshingly "warm" here for an Amiga community
