Wondering if there is a link to "view first unread posting" type of link to find the latest unread post in a specific topic string.  Normally when I long on, I click unread posts to see new posts.  No real problem except when the topic post has a lot of responses.  Then it becomes tedious trying to go through several pages to find where I last viewed the topic responses.

For example, the Malwarebytes Beta topic is currently running 5+ pages.  Finding where I left off since my last visit can result in re-reading many previous posts...

I know this is not a big deal, however most forum sites have this kind of "View First Unread" button for active posts and it would be convenient if this forum could have such a button..

Unless it already has such a button and I can't find it...lol

I use http://www.landzdown.com/recent/ to get all the latest posts, it's not ideal but I'm okay with that.

Alternatively, at the upper left of the screen (under Hello akjudge), click on "Show unread posts since last visit".

It will take you here: http://www.landzdown.com/unread/

.....and when you get to that page, do not click on the topic title(s).
Click on the highlighted word "New" next to each topic title.

(Once again, Winchester73, I took too long responding.  I'll post anyway.) 

If you were logged on, whether you use the "Show unread posts" or not, when you opened the "General Software News, Updates & Discussions" forum, the thread would have had the image next to the title.  Clicking New would take you to the next post after you last visited that thread.

Thanks Corrine (and others) for the tip about the "New" flag.  I should have realized that that would be the solution to finding the lasted unread post since my last visit to that particular thread.
