Always open the first post of the topic?

(Rahul Banker) #1

Hi, I would like to make discourse open the first post always instead of the last read post, is that possible?

(Jeff Atwood) #2

No, this is not possible. You can do this if you open links in anonymous mode in the browser, or if you never log in.

Just to clarify, you can enter a topic at the top by clicking or tapping on the number of replies.

Clicking or tapping on…

  • the topic title → enters at last read position

  • the number of replies → pops up a date selector so you can enter at top or bottom.

  • the last reply date → enters at the bottom

Auto-focus on post while opening

I was finally able to make the forums look good :slight_smile:

Would like your feedback and of course the functionality I mentioned above!


Digging up this one

Is there any way via a theme component to enable such feature?
We have really long discussions where all beginners can ask questions. Before they ask a new one, we want them to redirect to the FAQ in the topic to avoid recurring questions.

You’re in luck, there is a new option on each category to enable this:


Actually my intention was to navigate to first post even when unread posts are available. Only the dot next to the topic title navigates to the first unread post.
