A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...
No, actually it was here, only a few days ago, before the latest changes to the web site. When viewing the topic list, topics with new posts were bold (they still are), and there was a link that would take us to the first new message of that topic. I cannot find such a link anymore.
Am I missing something or is it actually gone?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I've stumbled across a setting for this (though I've not used the community much before the update).
Found in Community>My Settings>Preferences
You will see another 'tab': >Linear Layout
There, there is a checkbox to "Jump to first unread post in a topic"
I imagine (hope) that this works as described? 😉
