Finding latest replies in big threads

Posted , 4 users are following.

How do you find the latest reply in a big thread like the REZUM--HAVE YOU HAD THIS DONE??????? thread?

I'm not sure what it does when sort the replies with latest first, but I don't see the latest reply at the top.

    Its very difficult. New posts are mixed in with old posts making it almost impossible to find the newest posts. The I used to follow the FLA & Rezum threads but it took so long to find new posts I stopped following.

    Oh, the other thing that drives me nuts are the deleted links. How can forum members tell others of their findings if most posts with links are "moderated" out of existence

    Yes, this forum style allows users to reply at any level of the thread, such as

    reply to the original post

    reply to some others users reply

    etc.

    and so every reply adds a new potential branch where new replies to that start

    But consider that there aren't a lot of choices to find information like this.

      You're absolutely right Dale but I'd bet there would be much more traffic if the forum was easier to navigate. And clicks mean $ in forum operator's pocket. Everybody would win

    I have been on dozens of internet forums over the years and this software is undoubtedly the worst for following a thread or getting to the latest posts.

    If you try to get to the end of the Rezum thread either by hitting <Ctrl>End or by trying to move the scroll bar to the end it will keep loading pages and will take control of the scroll bar. When you see that it has finished loading all pages because you can finally see the last page (which might take a couple of minutes in the case of the Rezum thread) and then sort by latest the latest post will show up at the top.

    I'm thinking it has to load all replies first before it can sort them.
