Clicking on topic takes me to the bottom of the thread

Sorry if this is a silly question, but how do I set it such that when I click on a topic (e.g. from categories page) it takes me to the top (the original posting) instead of the bottom (latest on the thread)?

Click on the post count, then the top button.

I just spent about 5 minutes looking for the #howto:faq about this but couldn’t find it… :thinking: Anyone got the link?

The assumptions here aren’t correct. You are taken to your last read position.

@riking I think you are looking for this blog post… Discourse New User Tips and Tricks … which is also linked in every new user PM, etc.


thanks @codinghorror
then the next question is, is that customizable? (so it goes to the main post every time?)

Entering at your last read position is a critical feature of Discourse to make reading enjoyable.

If you’re making FAQ posts or guides, I suggest closing the topic after the first post and linking a separate discussion topic about the guide.


got it, thanks @riking

Noting that each category has a Navigate to first post after topics are read setting to override the default behavior. In line with what @riking mentioned, I would only recommend using it for FAQ/Guide categories.
