Couple thangs

When I revisit a thread I haven't seen in a while, it always seems to kick me back to the first page of the thread and not where I left off last time.


Am I doing it wrong?

I think it’s a Xenforo “feature.” It’s been like that on other Xenforo sites for me always and I always just hit the Jump to Unread button. But we’ll see if Nathan has a better answer.
 
You just hit the big "Jump to Unread" button


I'm not seeing that button.

I usually click on the "new posts" button, which then loads up all the threads with new posts. Then I click on the thread I'm interested in and it usually automatically takes me to the spot I left off, but if I have not visited a thread, after a certain time it kicks me back to the beginning and "doesn't remember" where I was for some reason.

When I first went into this thread, it stuck me on page 1, and I saw this circled button.

Oh ho ho! I was about to say "yeah this sucks but it's some Xenforo crap we can't change" but then I spent a little bit wondering "wait can we change it??" and apparently it's set to forget where you were after 30 days BUT that number can be changed and I just changed it to 180 cuz it's fucking annoying to me too. But apparently this can impact performance if it's too high, so if we start to see issues I'll ratchet it down to like 90 or something.

IF ANYONE SUDDENLY SEES UNREAD THREADS THAT YOU HAVE ALREADY READ AND CLICKING THEM TAKES YOU TO THE FIRST POST OF THAT THREAD, THIS CHANGE IS THE REASON FOR THAT. SORRY.

Is this why a whole bunch of threads have shown up in my watched threads area even though there isn't any new shit there?
 
Something odd is happening with the new posts list. Old threads I follow are suddenly showing up as unread.

My banner image isn't crisp enough. Can I get more pixels to work with or a short tutorial on how to best size pictures from Gilmore Girls and Mr. Toad's Wild Ride?
