    I had it set on the "old" forum that when I opened a thread, it opened with the most recent post at the top of the list. Very helpful when there are multiple pages. I see the button at the head of each thread that says "latest activity", but it's a pain to have to push it on each and every thread. Is there a way I can set this up to do what I had it doing before?? Please answer in small words. Thanks!
    Tagging on to this... I have the 'latest activity' mode selected in my user settings. And when I begin from a page of search results, find a post I'm interested in, and click on the 'go to post' link, it takes me to the thread, but usually to the first page of the thread (since I have the 'latest activity' mode selected i'm routed to page 2 of 2 in this example, rather than page 1 of 2, which is where I need to navigate to in order to see the most recent post, which is the one I was targeting) and does not take me to the actual post. (It's doing the opposite of what it should be (feels like buggy script)).

    Also, I don't see the ability to "multi-quote" more than one post to maintain thought continuity, i.e. I wasn't able to quote CapnMike's post as well as Strahan's reply to same (the post where he says "I know a guy"). (Perhaps that functionality exists here somewhere and I'm just not seeing it?)

        It works in a slightly weird way now. If you click on a few of the 'quote' buttons beneath the post you'll then see that the 'post reply' button on the top left of the forum changes with a number to reflect the number of quotes you have selected. Push the button and the comment box should now add in all the comments from the posts you have chosen. I agree it could be more intuitive, but that's how VB5 seems to do it now!

          Got it, thanks! I still haven't figured out how to make the 'go to most recent post' function work properly tho...
