Made New Even Worse

Made New Even Worse (post #68511)

I noticed that you have made some changes and at first glance, it appears you have broken it even worse. There was a thread that indicated it had "1 New" post in it. I entered the thread, but instead of being brought to the New post, I was brought to the very first post in the thread. The new post was the very last post on the second page. So, I had to scroll through two pages of posts to find the new one.

I also noticed that you have apparently changed the color of the envelope on threads that I have already read. Did we ask for that? I can easily tell what threads I've read by looking at the number of new posts.

Ann, have you ever been (post #68511, reply #1 of 6)

Ann, have you ever been brought directly to a "new" post? I never have. It has always opened as you describe--first post, and then scroll to have to find it. Just curious about your past experience.

Yes, I've always been brought (post #68511, reply #2 of 6)

Yes, I've always been brought to the first new post. Do you click on the thread title or on the icon that says "# New", in the "Replies" column. So, for this thread, the Replies Column said 1 and under that it said "1 New". I clicked on "1 New" and it should have brought me to your post, but it brought me to my beginning comment. So, I suspect that you're clicking on the title of the thread instead of the "# New". The Title of the thread will always being you to the very top of the first page.

You suspect correctly. I'll (post #68511, reply #4 of 6)

You suspect correctly. I'll give the other way a try. When and where was that ever talked about. But of course, it only "works" if everything is in chronological order, and it isn't on the second page of a thread. Correct?

Well, that works!! ANd the new even held to the second page--maybe since I didn't open the first page.
Still is the possibility of missing other parts of the thread, I think.
The "new" is a little 'redder', but still a lot of orange goin' on, as Adele says!! ;o)
Thanks for the lesson

Yes, it SHOULD take you to (post #68511, reply #5 of 6)

Yes, it SHOULD take you to wherever the first New post is, whether it's the first, second or third page. And, since that page is the first one you're looking at the New will hold for that page. If/when you go to the next page, the News will be gone.

Playing around today, I'm finding that some threads the New is taking me to the first New post and in some it's taking me to the very top of the thread. I haven't been able to determine any pattern as to why it works two different ways.

The color of the envelope is (post #68511, reply #3 of 6)

The color of the envelope is still light yellow if it has an unread message in it, is that what your saying changed? All I know is the orange is still orange. LOL

But, but, it's SUPPOSED to taste like that!
