Is There A "Next Unread" Pointer Within Threads?

Many forum software products have a feature that maintains a "Last Unread" post pointer within a thread. I'm then taken to the newest post within each thread that I haven't yet seen.

I don't get that in WebmasterWorld. In other words I always have to scroll through the entire thread from Post #1 to get to a post that I haven't already read.

Obviously, it's confusing and annoying especially on a multi-page thread.

Is it just me and a setting I failed to apply?

Or does everyone have to go down the list to find the next unread post?

Needless to say, I'm always logged in.

Just wondering....

Part of the beauty of the forum software is its seeming simplicity. There's not a lot of whistles and bells to get in the way of the content. This cuts both ways though. It's also missing some features that would make what you're asking about possible. We've learned to live with it because of the benefits of being a member here.

I scroll down until I see the bold timestamp on the right -- the wheel mouse certainly saves me time. In your control panel you can set how many messages you want displayed per screen.
