For threads with multiple pages, if you click on the thread title, it takes you to the last page instead of the first page. Not sure if this is a bug or feature. Either way, I preferred the old behavior where you are taken to the first page. If I need to jump directly to the last 3 pages, I have the page links under the thread title.

I believe it takes you to the first unread message, not the last page. One click from there gets you to any page you like.

I dont believe this is a 'bug' per se, but a new 'feature'. ;) Its not taking you to the last page, its taking you to the latest unread post, if you're using the new posts option.

When I browse the forums and click on a random multi-page post it takes me to post #1.

So how do I revert back to the old post option? I checked my preference page and I don't see anything that jumps out as obvious setting. There are some threads that I never read before and it takes me to the very last post which is kind of annoying. Also, for BST threads, I would like to see what items were added instead of seeing the latest "bump".

Every forum will be like this unless the forum is broken. Clicking the link will bring you to the last unread post. The problem w/ the old site was that it would make the entire forum as read when you left and returned to the forum.

But I do think that the page numbers should list page 1 always.

I personally like the forums that take you to the first page, but also have a tiny icon next to the thread title that takes you to the first unread. Best of both worlds.
