    Default Thread links, default to first unread post

    Basically, do it like XenForo does. I figure this shouldn't be all that difficult of a mod, but...

    Pretty much, instead of having to click the little tiny arrow icon next to a thread to start reading at your first unread post in a thread, make the title of the thread do this.

    Make the little arrow then go to the first post in a thread.

    I think people by far want to start at the first unread post much more than the first post of a thread, so why make it small and difficult to click?

    As you know, I no longer run vB, but as a user of vB (on your site and some others), this is something that I've learned to hate having to deal with, now that I see how well it works out on my XenForo site. So... it'd just make things better all around, and even if you don't make it a mod/template edit or whatever... do it here on your site, please?

    Thanks for idea.

    I just take a look and made this template modification on vBorg: Thread title leads to new (unread) posts like Xenforo does, instead to the first post - vBulletin.org Forum. It does exactly what Trekkan suggests.
