"Go To New Post" vs. threading - Travis Cobbs - 2011-08-10

When you click on the red flag next to a topic, the forum takes you to the first new post in the topic since the last time you read that topic. Unfortunately, this doesn't work very well in the threaded view, since the definition of "first new post" is the first one chronologically, instead of the top new post visually. So you end up having to scroll through the whole threaded discussion looking for new posts no matter what you do.

Is there any possibility that "first new post" could be redefined to mean the top new one visually? The two are often the same, and doing it this way would make that link useful. (Note: I had this happen to me a few days ago, and stopped clicking the flag link. It's possible you already fixed this, but I'm assuming not.)

I sure this can be done via a module of some sort. Since I'm just now learn how to create them, I'm not sure how long it'll take to get it out.
