Howdy,

I have several bookmarks set up to threads that I visit on a daily or near-daily basis.

For example,

http://forums.everythingicafe.com/threads/song-of-the-day.47795/page-159

Unfortunately, the page that I bookmark is not always the most recent page for the thread in question, as new posts get added to the thread.

Is there any URL that would take you to the most recent page of a thread?

TIA,

-Rafagon

PS: @Europa (if anyone knows, it's probably you) :D

I've never found a way to do it. Coders have written scripts to achieve this, but it doesn't work with mobile browsers and it can be difficult to get it to work properly on non-mobile browsers.

You could bookmark the "Watched Threads" link. This shows all subscribed threads with new posts and following the link to a given thread automatically takes you to the first unread post.
