The dot to the left of a topic title brings you to the first unread post.
It does now. Thanks.
But what's the difference between the dot and the star?
Or better still, can you tell us where to find a user manual (not a manual for administrators) for this latest version?
I'm hoping that there are various "personal profile" settings that I might use to get the behavior I prefer. (E.g., "full editor" -- where I can edit the source, -- for which I was shown a button once yesterday, but only once.)
Edited to add:
Ah, there it is! The "Use Full Editor" button appears when I edit my previous post. But that's the only place I've seen it.
And -- sigh -- I'm not getting the old "full editor". In fact, it seems to give me the same WYSIWYG editor I was in when I selected "Full Editor". And with the WYSIWYG, I haven't yet found a way to extract a particular quote with its attribution from within a nested series of quotes. That's something I used to do a lot, so that it could be seen which few words in a novel-sized post I was responding to, unobscured by the irrelevant mass.
And the dot versus the star? I now see that the star means it's a thread in which I've posted. That's nice.
But now that I've read the latest posts, clicking on the dot or star has no effect. I would like to be put at the end of the thread to re-read it, but it seems that I can now only enter the thread by clicking on the thread title, and that positions me at the "top" (the very first post). I presume that if someone else adds a new post, the dot or star will again become active, but in the meantime, frustration.
