    Does the "last post" function work for you since the last VB update?

    Yes or no, simple enough? Maybe Fred Zed and his tech guys will belive us then...

    Now that's what I call a good initiative.

    Bravo, MG!

    No, and it's annoying since I keep on forgetting and clicking on it anyway!

    Techman, hope you don't mind me quoting your post in the poll thread.

I really doubt that it works for anyone and I just think that Fred and his techs aren't looking in the right place.

    I don't mind at all. You can quote me anytime!

    SK, are you sure of that? I've tried it on my laptop running Windows 7 using ie8, and FF 3.5.3 and it doesn't work. I've also tested it on my main system, same OS, same browsers and it doesn't work. Here on my office system it doesn't work with either browser and I tested at a friend's place on a Win XP box with the same results. I've even tested it on my USB flash drive running an older FF under Portable Apps and it doesn't work. I actually don't see how it can be working on anyone's system.

    Are you sure you aren't clicking on the link at the beginning of the thread which takes you to the first unread post instead of the last post link beside the last poster's handle in the last post column?

    What works? Does it bring you directly to the last post or does it just bring you to the 1st page of the thread?

    In that case it doesn't work for you either and chances are good that the others who voted yes are set up the same way.
