auto to second page

When the posts go on to the second page, and a person  clicks on the topic, shouldn't the thread open to second page?  Makes it easier to follow.

With you there RJ .. it seems to default always to page #1!!  It seems to need like with VBulletin ... /newpost.php type of deal - and so ''find'' the latest not seen, regardless of what page.  maybe this cgi coded board does not give that facility?

The other thing - which I mentioned not long ago --- the ''new posts'' ... being limited to just ten .. will I fear outgrow itself as we grow .... and I want to try as much as poss' to stay on top  all new material.  Any chance that can be expanded to maybe 20 later on?  Or simply ''new posts'' ... regardless of numer on the day.

I will look into this one, but no promises. That might take a major rewrite of the display code.

This should be easier, I will look into it as well. Probably not the "days" posts, but can probably change the number from 10 to 20 or whatever.
