Default Go to last read post when entering thread

On other forums when I enter a thread that I have previously been reading I am taken to the last read post. I am not able to find a way to do that with this forum and am wondering if I am just overlooking it or if it is even possible. That is a very handy feature and saves a lot of time. I am aware of the link that can be clicked on to be taken to the last read thread but that is a manual process and just adds additional steps and time. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

I really thought this would be a feature wanted by more users.

Since I don't not see a Last... I an going to assume that you mean Last Page. The Last Page is not the same thing as View First Unread.

If you're logged in, click on that little blue box next to the thread title.
(It has a down arrow on it)
If you hover your cursor over it, it says "go to first new post"

That is why I described it as a manual process in the OP rather than being automatic. I know it doesn't seem like much but once you have used it for any period of time it sure is a nice feature to have.

I just looked in the user settings and didn't see something like that I could turn on. Sorry. I'll ask the parent company if they know anything about that.
