    Default Recent Threads block - New Post link & Unread/read status

    Greetings,
    The the Recent Threads block, when clicking on the New Post icon next to a thread title it only takes you to the beginning of the post instead of the newest post. However the New Post feature works everywhere else in the forums (regular forum viewing or What's New? pages) The thread links are the same as elsewhere in the forum, but it doesn't jump you to the anchor for the new post.

    Also normally threads bold/unbold depending on unread/read status. This isn't working for vba but works for the rest of vB.

    Thoughts? ideas?
    Did I miss a setting somewhere?

    That link shoud take you to the first unread post, not the last post. If you hover your mouse over the two it will state as such.

    This one is frustrating as well, was much easier to tell if you had read a thread or not if it was bold like in previous versions of vBad

    Right...that's what I said...
    Instead of taking me to the "first unread post of the thread" it takes me to "the FIRST post of the thread", not even the last post. In order to get to the first new post, once in the thread you have to click the New Posts link again and it finally takes you there.
    Oddly enough, the Last Post link DOES work by taking you to the last post of the thread.

    Thank you for pointing this out. Both of these issue should be corrected in the next release.

    I just upgraded to vBadvanced CMPS v4.0.0 Gold and it appears that this issue is still unresolved?

    See here on the recent threads module for the 'JG Karaoke' thread; when I click the last post button (next to the username 'rsung'), it doesn't take me to the last post, but to first page instead.

    Thanks!

    Have you customized your 'adv_portal_recthreads_exp' template at all?

    Yes, the template is in red, but I can't remember what changes I made to it. This must be it then, considering that the last post problem doesn't occur for my other styles.

    Can you kindly advise how I should go about fixing this? Thanks Brian.

    Click on the template to edit it, click the 'View History' link on the left, and then click 'Compare Versions' on the next page. I usually click the 'View Side by Side' button on the next page too since it's easier for me to compare with that view.
