Link to the last post now available

For anyone who hasn't noticed, TA has added a hyperlink to the last post in a thread:

tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g1-i12104-k3600892…

Very handy, especially for long threads!

Now, if they would just add the ID of the last poster, I'd be a happy camper! :-)

It is so subtle that I cannot find it? Or is Firefox not picking it up?

Frommy. Glad you went first. I cannot find it either.

LOL, frommy! I use Firefox too, so yes, it picks it up.

Go over to the column that says Last Post. Run your mouse down over the times of the last posts, and they will become clickable links. (Unless there are no replies to that thread yet).

Thanks M_M, but I hardly see that as a major improvement, however others might. I am fairly regular (must be the bran for breakfast) in my web use. I sign in from work at lunch time, but rarely post from there, then again mid evening from home. I roughly calculate the time difference from east coast US, which TA is set to, to our time. This has become second nature to me now with only changes in daylight saving catching me out at times.

Where I am having a little bit of difficulty with time is with another TA forum I am now monitoring for my next big adventure .......

Thanks MM! Not sure I'd ever have discovered that, but it definitely IS a help!

I have to admit .... I don't see the benefit either. What am I missing ?

cjnky,

I thought you had picked up the RV and were on your way to Alaska. Be sure to write a report when you get back. Or better yet, write as you go !

Have lots of fun and be safe.

Well, I'm using it for most threads now. It saves time.

But you guys don't have to use it if you don't want to. :-)
