I'm using a different theme that doesn't appear to have this same option. Bring your laptop if you can when we get together today and you can show me what you mean.

 click on the 'posts since last visit' and in the recent unread topics  there is a small icon on the far right under posts column that shows 'last post' when u hover the cursor over it, click and you go directly to that post but i'm not sure you go to the first of the posts since i was there last??? have to wait to see if that turns out to be the case.

i suppose it depends on how many new posts have been added since the last time ...if it's one or two that 's easy enough, but after that you end up scrolling back or forward until u get to the last one yu remember reading....so my preference would be for it to go to the last one I read or the next one which is new to me...is that a choice we could have on this format?

If I'm understanding what you're saying, I don't think so, at least not without code changes, and I'm not a PHP code monkey unfortunately.
