When clicking on most recent topics with unread post it goes to the first page of the topic, this has no sense... if you have a forum with a large number of users and you want to keep the forum alive is needed to go directly to the last message of the topic... my users told me that, i think the same... 

You can check my forum, it has 50.000 users, and i know how a forum should be... 

so please, change it... when click on a topic please redirect to the latest message on the topic instead of the first one... lets make a better simple press with simple changes...



PS, there more features that are needed to put SP on a first line forum and start fighting agains SMF or PHPbb3... to lets take the "little details" that made those forums great...

If you click on the topic name it goes to the topic.

If you click on the last post icon it goes to the last post.

If you click on the 'new' button it goes to the last post you have not yet read.

And we have no desire to 'fight SMF or PHPBB'. We do this because we enjoy it not as a business. laugh

Believe me.... is more intuitive and keeps more the conversation going directly to the last post... ( IMO)

Maybe having a forum is not a business for you, but on my particular case is my business... that Is the reason I ask to improve things to improve the SimplePress....  I´m very happy with you and MrPapa support, but there are slights changes that could improve and make SP better and more intuitive... just telling my opinion as a webmaster with a 50.000 users forum that normally are using other forums and ask to improve mine...

Best thing to do if you want to change that up is to create a custom SP theme and design it how you want. In some cases you don't even have to do much to obtain your goals.

For example you could create a big and obvious "Go to last message" icon and replace the default one with it.
