Why is it that when you go to read a post the screen jumps to the end of the thread?
Is there a way to stop this and just have the page load without the page moving?
The software is trying to be helpful it seems. The destination depends on what you click and where, so it can be a timesaver if you know how it works.
As far as I can see this is what happens:
Clicking on a 'Recent Post'
shown in the Box (Left Column) or the bottom of page will bring you directly to the most recent (last) post in that thread.
Going to 'Active Topics'
and clicking on the thread title will bring you to the most recent (last) post in that thread. If there is a small arrow (
) to the left of a thread in the 'Active Topics' list clicking on that will bring you to the first post in that thread that you have not seen.
If you go to the 'Forum List'
and click on a thread there it will bring you to the first post (beginning) of a thread.
