I’m not complaining or want this to be changed. I just want to post this, so that if it is actually the case, then it might be useful.
It seems like when there are new or unread posts/threads, there is displayed a different sentence at the bottom of the thread page. In those situations, it is displayed similar to this:
So this can be useful if your Notification settings are set up in a certain way (all new posts tracked). However, with most Notification settings, you still have to go between the Unread and New pages to read them all—and most importantly, from this, you can’t access new untracked posts in all categories.
If all the unread posts and new threads have been read, this is displayed:
Of which it is possible to go to the Latest page to see all new untracked posts.
- When there are new threads or unread tracked posts, the sentence doesn’t work well for untracked posts.
- It works okay if new posts aren’t automatically tracked, but you can’t disable notifications for new threads, so the first issue comes back in this case.
- If all new posts are tracked, then you are left with always being forced to use the Unread and New pages, since you can only access the Latest page when everything has been read.
Again, I’m not complaining or asking to change this. I’m only pointing it out. Feel free to use this as you see fit.
Solution: Always have the ‘or view latest topics’ part.
