Great Job, Friends.

You are doing a holiness job here. Agree
Good job Vilius Thup

Is there any chance to have a button you can click near a thread so you see the first unread post there? That function was in the previous design, it's very useful imo.
Thanks for the comments guys.

Clicking on the thread title should do it. As you can there is an arrow icon above the thread title which goes to the last post of the thread instead of the latest post. But if you click on the thread title it should take to the latest unread post. Even when you move your mouse on arrow icon and thread title you can see a different link showing up. One ends with getnewpost and the other with getlastpost. Let me know if it works.

Thanks Vilius, it works. I was just thinking where can I click to see the posts of the day "New posts" button)? I click "View New Content" but it only provides old posts and a couple of new ones Huh

It shows new posts to me when I click on 'View New Content'. Maybe it's a bug which will be fixed in an update.

All the new posts? I just get a couple and the rest is old. And I checked some threads with new content that simply does not show up when I click "View New Content".

To me it shows all new posts. Maybe it has something to do with cookies for you. You could try deleting them (there is an option at the bottom left). I can't think of another reason as there seems to be no technical problems. I could be wrong of course.
Some questions... in the previous forum I click on 'new posts' and had a list with all threads with new posts since my last visit. After I had read them they would not show if I click on 'new posts' after some time... and even if they did I just clicked on 'mark forums read' and solved it.

So where are the 'new posts' and 'mark all forums read' buttons?

New posts can be seen by clickon on 'View New Content' (it is below the search box).

The link to mark all forums as red is at the bottom right ('Mark Board As Read').
Is it possible to add a 'go to last post' button next to each new/updated threa?

There is a little arrow icon which does that Wink see my and rikh's posts above.
I don't see an arrow over the thread title when I see the threads in the 'view new contect' list.

I see this arrow in the forum index, where i can see all the forum categories.

The only arrow in the 'view new contect' list is next to the last poster username which pops up a small windows with the user's info.

I upgraded to IE 8...
It seems that I misunderstood you. I was talking about forum index obviously. Clicking on a thread title on 'View new content' takes you to the latest unread post. If you want to view the last post you have to do that manually or from forum index.
It works now by clicking on the headline. It didn't work before with IE 6. Thanks.
Can't get it to work Vilius. This is what I get by clicking "View New Content" and, for instance, the Euroleague Summer Signings and Rumours has new posts today and still doesn't show up there. I had no problems with the previous design btw.
Rik try to kinda 'reset' the board by clicking on 'Mark board as Read' at the bottom left side.

If that doesn't work, click on 'Delete cokies' too and try to login again.

I think these are transitional problems due to change, for example I had 1 prv msg in my inbox from the previous version of board and it showed full until I emptied it.
You should try doing what Black Urum suggested. If it still doesn't fix the problem I will have to report it on the official forum. But it doesn't look like it's some kind of bug because others have no problems with that.
