When looking at a long running thread, is there any way of looking at recent posts without trawling past hundreds of past pages? I usually give up before I get there! :-S

Not sure if this what you mean or if it will help

Open the thread then at the top it says Profile, Posted by, Options, Post Date, click on "Post date" and it will take you to the last Post and page on that thread ( so the thread is in reverse order )

Click on Post Date (top right) and it will reverse the order of the threads so that the last post comes up first

Hi Geordie~~~~

Click on the post date in blue on the OP

It will take you to the last post but is a bit confusing as it is out of sync sort of upside down from what you expect :-S

But you get used to it :-D :-D

Don't think I can explain it any better give it a try and you will see :-)

If you want them in the correct order then click on "more pages" at the top right.

You get a drop down list of pages, select the largest page number range and that will replace the boxes for pages 1 to 10 at the top of the display.

Select the last of those pages to get the page with the latest post.
