System doesn't remember which page/position I have read to in threads

    When I look at a list of threads, ones with new posts in since I last looked at them are in bold - that works as it should.
    But when I click on one of those threads, it takes me to the start of page 1, not to the page and position where I was last at.
    This is annoying as I have to go the last page and work backwards to see what I missed.

    Other forum systems do it, surely this one can and should do it?

    You need to click on the little icon to the left of the thread title. It's standard behaviour for a vBulletin based forum such as this one - the one's that do it the other way are Xenforo based forums. Personally I think it's the only thing that's better on a Xenforo forum.

    Sorry, I still don't understand.
    I've used vBulletin forums where it just works - no clicking needed.

    Do you mean the large envelope icon? Or the little icon to the right of that? I can't click either of them.
    What should happen when I click?
    When is it possible to click?
    Is there somewhere this is described?

    Ah - now I see - a little circular icon appears between the other two icons!
    Thanks.

    Please link me to a couple of those forums so I can see what they are doing.

    The archive doesn't function without sending me to the current Xenforo site.

    I may be mistaken. Now I have found the little round icon I'm happy!
