Go Directly To Most Recent Post - Mobile

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Use case: Mobile user clicks on a long thread that s/he has never read, or has not read recently. User wants to go directly to the most recent post in the thread.

 

 

Problem Statement: "Last >>" button appears to be available at the bottom of the list of all posts on the current page. On a desktop, this might not be a huge problem, because you can always hit ctrl-end or use some other mechanism to scroll to the bottom quickly. Plus, of course, there is a "last post" link on the desktop version of the site. On a smartphone, because of the screen size, posts tend to be a lot "longer", vertically speaking. Therefore scrolling to the bottom of all the posts just to find the "Last>>" button can be really onerous, especially in a thread, like many in the Instruction forum, where posts tend to be wordy.

 

Is there a way to go directly to the last post that I am missing? If so, do tell. If not, suggest there should be. Thanks for listening.

Excellent suggestion I have the same problem.

 

While we're at it another thing that is awkward is the "back" button.  When I go to the Activity Feed and read a post, I want to go back to the activity feed, but the back button often takes me to the last page in Safari I was looking at (from days ago.)  The only alternative is using the upper left navigation which takes more than one click just to go back a page.

 

This is on iPhone 5 all latest software.

For the first item, I always mark the whole forum read when I'm done reading what interests me, so if the next time I suddenly decide to read a thread I've been ignoring, tapping that thread takes me to the point the thread was at when I marked all the forums read. Failing that, to go to the last post, click on the box with the arrow in the upper right of the thread and tapping the antenna thing seems to take you to the last post.
