    Can I make a browser shortcut to latest post in a thread?

    Remember messing about with it but the closest solution I found only work as far as latest post in current page.
    As soon as a page is full and another page of said thread starts it will continue pointing towards, I guess the cached page last updated in my cookies.
    Any fully working solution that work with MMOC version, structure whatnot?

    The code I played with was <...>?&goto=newpost which as described worked wonders. Untill a new page is created
    But soon after Mr Xi secured a third term, Apple released a new version of the feature in China, limiting its scope. Now Chinese users of iPhones and other Apple devices are restricted to a 10-minute window when receiving files from people who are not listed as a contact. After 10 minutes, users can only receive files from contacts.
    Apple did not explain why the update was first introduced in China, but over the years, the tech giant has been criticised for appeasing Beijing.

    I believe adding "?goto=newpost" to any thread URL would do this. For example:

    https://www.mmo-champion.com/threads...F?goto=newpost

    Should go to the latest unread post in the thread https://www.mmo-champion.com/threads...2-months-of-DF irrespective of the page that the post occurs on. Also, you only need the ID of the thread itself and not the extended title, so the URL https://www.mmo-champion.com/threads...6?goto=newpost would work equally well.

    Thats the ting, last unread could be pages ago in a thread cos that code doesnt ask the .db before it directs the browser to goto "last" post.
    It's oblivious about if new pages and posts got added.
    Just a minor issue but would be nice use of a working code in terms of all megathreads that can grow 5 pages in 30mins etc

    Add a high page number to the URL: https://www.mmo-champion.com/threads...DF/page9999999 and that'll get you to the last page. There isn't any way to get to the last post AFAIK.

    Yeah, can't really help there. One of the site admins might be able to tell you more.

    Hey old man, glad you sneak around publicly now and then
    Thnx, that never struck me and if it did I would presume it would throw me error msg's either way, works like a charm

    Why not just click the icon that's next to every thread, the one that takes you to the last post?

    What URL are you going to and what page do you end up on? Opening https://www.mmo-champion.com/threads...raine/page9999 takes me to the last page (currently 1487)
