    it jumps straight to the last reaction.
    But I want to read the opening post first and scroll through the reactions after that from the top down, not the other way round.


    Is that just happening with me?

    That's just the default behaviour of the forum software, I'm afraid. I don't believe there's any way round it.

    If the thread has more than 1 page, then you can select page 1 and it should pop you at the top of it.

    But if its the first time opening a thread you should be taken to the first post.

    I wonder why the developers thought of this?

    It's supposed to always take you to the last post that you have read in each thread but it often doesn't.

    I guess not. We're running an old outdated version of XenForo so maybe it's been fixed but we may never know. When you go to your profile you're supposed to be able to see the last 10 people who visited but that doesn't work either, though I can remember when it did (and when it stopped).

    I mean that I never would have thought that the forum was using a tool that was not created by the team.

    The worst is that when you try to scroll up, it keeps going back down, it´s a struggle to get to the OP.

    What team? This and all forums that I am aware of are using commercial software packages. Some are free to use and some aren't. Look in the lower left on every page: "Forum software by XenForo™ ©2010-2015 XenForo Ltd". No one builds their own forum software. We aren't coders.

    I have observed that it depends on the sorta link you click..Like if its clicked from a member profile page it takes me straight to the page where that member posted their reply and their post would be like sort of highlighted. I mean it takes you straight to that members post.. I think thats pretty cool...
    I tend to focus on the positives than negatives.. Like nothing is perfect right.. I hope you can find many positives too..

    I found a way around.. I'm very curious
    So here is what you should do..
    Hover over Forums tab on the top of the website.. And Click on
    -Mark Forums Read-Are you sure you want to mark all forums read? - Yes - mark all forums Read.
    Then you can click on each section in the forum like for instance if i wanna read general threads
    https://lgbtchat.net/forums/general-off-topic-lounge.5/
    Then if i click on the threads it won't jump straight to unread/latest messages anymore.. It will show you from the first page..

    This is not a 'limitation' of the software, Its actually a feature of the software, Its designed to do that, The developers thought it through.. And even given an option to disable it if you don't need it.. I think this site is pretty cool : D
    It even works well on mobile browsers

    I just found out when do don´t go via de forum, but just click on the link of the latest item, it still does it and you have to mark the forums read every time you visit.

    Anyhow it is already a lot less annoying.
