I'm always taken to the top post of the newest page, rather than the correct post on that page when clicking this button in search results.

Used to work, doesn't seem to now. Running Safari.

Use the one on the right, under the heading "last post"

AHhh but that's different though. That takes you to the latest post.

I want to see the oldest post that I haven't read, which is what that button does. Well, did.

It still works on Chrome on Windows, but has stopped working on Safari on a Mac.

That's a different thing - that shows a list of threads which have new posts in.

Those little icons I posted a picture of can be clicked and you get taken you to the latest post in a thread. Except on Safari.

Koooorrrnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

*bump* pleeeeeease Korn!

Edit:
The issue:

On Chrome, this URL
https://www.bikechatforums.com/viewtopic.php?t=320845&view=newest

redirects to:
https://www.bikechatforums.com/viewtopic.php?p=4474840#4474840

(assuming that is the last unread post of course)

Whereas on Safari it redirects to:
https://www.bikechatforums.com/viewtopic.php?p=4474840

Meaning that you're you're not placed at the correct place on the page for the new post.

Indeed, Safari is dropping the #number. My one is doing the same in both developer mode and 10.1 mode.

use Chrome Wink

I've written a Tampermonkey script for Safari to fix it incase it's also bothering anyone else!

Code:
// ==UserScript==
// @name         Bikechatforums 'view newest post' Safari fix
// @namespace    http://www.burningimage.net/
// @version      0.1
// @author       carvell
// @match        www.bikechatforums.com/viewtopic.php?p=*
// @grant        none
// ==/UserScript==

(function() {
    'use strict';

    var loc = document.location.toString();
    var postid = loc.split('=');

    //If # already exists (i.e. bug is fixed)
    if (postid[1].indexOf('#') > -1)
    {
        //Bug has probably been fixed
    }
    else
    {
        window.location.replace(loc + "#" + postid[1]);
    }

})();
