How can one get to the end of a long thread quickly? If a thread is a hundred posts long, and you want to see the most recent posts, all I can find is to scroll through the posts page by page. Is there a quicker way?

At the OP (original post) level is a blue hyperlink for view all replies.

Click that. Then you’ll see all the pages of replies.

Click the last one, and scroll to the bottom of the page.

The other way? Create a post and state “Posting to get to the bottom.” And you’ll be there.

Hit F5 (refreshes the page and marks all posts as read), once the page reloads hit End (moves you to the bottom of the page) on your keyboard

I have run into this a couple times myself. Really wish to see a box next to “see next 15 replies” to say “see last 15 replies”

Yes and on my iPhone that link tends to mix with the see all replies button.

On mobile I refresh the page and scroll to the bottom. That’s about the best you can do if you don’t want to read all the posts.
