    Default Forum thread link setting

    This is fairly minor but if it can be changed it would probably be an easy upgrade.

    When you enter a forum and look at a thread, let's say it has 10 pages based on your settings, it lists links to the thread for Pages 1, 2, 3, and 10. Why the heck would I want to jump to Page 3? If it's the first time I look at the thread, I want to see Page 1 to see what it is about. If I saw it in the morning or while following at work I probably want to see a page or two prior to the last post. It should have links to Pages 1, 8, 9, and 10 if anything. I think some forums are set to link a few pages at the beginning, one or more in the middle, and a few at the end. So I was wondering if there was a setting in this software.

    Or perhaps, as some fora have, a "go to last read post" button.

    The little icon beside the thread title is "Last Unread Post" and the icon beside the user name is the "Go To Last Post".

    Just have the people chained in your basement read them to you using a Bluetooth mic linked to your Bluetooth headset...

    Vb does not support the function you are suggesting. A custom hook could be written but that creates another set of problems every time any updates are done as it would have to be re-installed.
    Its a shame as VB was once the premiere choice for running forums.

    If you click on the number beside "Replies" in the thread list it will bring up a box of all the people that posted with their number of posts in that thread If you click on the number it will show you all the posts by that person.
