    This came up in another thread, but the "View First Unread Post" doesn't always work. I think it goes to the right page, but not the actual post. Anyone else seeing this?

    Yes, I have been reminding the owner of the site about this almost every day... It seems to have been busted once we moved the avatars to the left side.

    If it was moving the avatars that broke it, I'd much rather have the view first unread post feature work than have the avatars on the left.

    So did this link ever get fixed? I noticed that the avatars moved back to the right a while back, but the "view first unread" link still just goes to the correct page, not the correct post. Can this get fixed?

    Anyone had a chance to look at this problem yet? Still not working-it can get the page right, but not the post ID.

    Hey Chris, we're actually considering making the move to a paid forum software. PHPBB is *OK*, but you kinda get what you pay for.

    So is the first unread post link working for anyone now? Looks like this is still busted. Even on the free phpbb it should work, shouldn't it? I know I've used other sites that have the platform where the feature works.

    Want a hand troubleshooting this?
