hey guys
It really confused me that I had to register as a new user.
Maybe we could write this somewhere on the front page/General Discussion to make it obvious to others?

It was posted here https://www.killthecan.org/what-the-hell-happened-to-the-forums/ and on social media yesterday.

Are you referring to "here" (on the forums) in General Discussion?

any way of switching from the newest posts on top to the old way (newest posts at the bottom of the last page)?
Go to Profile>modify profile>look and layout. uncheck the box that says "newest post to the top."

I was liking this forum better then Tapatalk but now I'm not so sure. I had went to my settings and had turned on the quick reply box because I discovered that if one hit "quote" on a roll call and that box was used all one had to do was delete the top and bottom lines of the "quote" codes, type in ones name, days quit etc. and be done in no time. But then I found that feature gone from my page. I went back to adjust my settings and it has been deleted from the options. WHY??? That was one of this forums best features.
Um, now the quick reply box is back. Never mind

OK, for those of you who want to jump to the first unread post...

In a section (like Pre-HOF Groups) there are a list of subjects.

Some of those subjects will have a "New" button next to the subject name, ex:

Pre-HOF November 2018 Group New

That "New" image not only tells you that there are new messages under that subject, it is actually a link that will jump you to your first unread message in the subject if you click on it.

I am looking to see if there is some way to specify as a target in the URL (for people who want to bookmark links so that they always jump to whatever is new).

This is weird enough that it took me a couple of iterations to realize what I was seeing.

The following is an example of the a URL that links to the last read post in a topic:

        http://forum.killthecan.org/index.php?topic=58.msg847#new

The number '58' there is the topic number.  No matter what topic number you're talking about, appending ".msg847#new" to the topic number will take you to the first unread post in the topic.

For example - the URL to come to the first post in this topic is:

        http://forum.killthecan.org/index.php?topic=25.0

If you change the ".0" at the end of the URL to ".msg847#new", ex:

        http://forum.killthecan.org/index.php?topic=25.msg847#new

... you will have a URL that you can bookmark, and which will always take you to the first unread post in this topic.

this is awesome been trying to figure this out too
man i just thot that 'new' thing meant there were new posts in the thred. i will hafta check it out.

Well, crap.  That URL trick worked yesterday, but today it's a different msgXXXX number everywhere.  Going to have to dig into this more.

On the plus side, the "New" button always seems to work.  It's just bookmarks that are hosed.
