Greetings, first message here.

When I type an URL, I would like to be able to go directly to the last post of a thread.

With our old board, we were able to do that with this kind of example :

This following link goes directly to the first message, first page :
http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.cgi?num=1191342383

If we wanted to go directly to, let's say message 900, we could type in this :
http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.cgi?num=1191342383/5000

And it would go directly to the last availaible page with message.

With this forum, an url look like this :
http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/ffgforums/posts/list/53.page

But to do go a specific page, one can use this :
http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/ffgforums/posts/list/60/53.page

So it goes to page 60. THOUGH, if I write :
http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/ffgforums/posts/list/5000/53.page

It will appear a page with no message (it went to the last page).

I would like to know how to reach the last page of message with an URL.

Thanks!

I'm not sure there is a syntax to get to the current last post. However, the syntax to get to a specific message looks like:

https://coderanch.com/t/577748 #17673 (this reply to your question)

The 4307 part is the topic id and the 17673 s the reply id.

The URL to a specific message is always available in the Subject line section. It's linked to the little orange-ish page icon to the left of the date and time.

Alternatively, the last "at this time" reply to a thread can be obtained from the forum index page.

It would be helpful if "My Bookmarks" page would show the last "at this time" reply to a thread just like it does on the forum index page.

FWIW, the best way to get suggestions into the development flow is to enter a Jira enhancement entry.... Stuff in the boards has a way of getting lost in the noise.
