When a thread has more than one page the topmost post on pages other than the first page  is the first post in the thread, not the last post that was posted. 

As a result the latest post looks like it’s in response to the first post, (it never is, or that’s my experience)

I think all pages should start with the last post on the previous page.

 Opinions will vary.

Thoughts anyone?

Interesting one @woz 

What I see is a choice to show the first post. The idea is so that you can always see the orgininal question / discussion starter, no matter if you’re on page 2 or page whatever. So it helps people understand what the thread’s about. But only if you want to.

For example, here’s page 4 of the ‘What made me happy today’ thread, which has 37 pages at the moment. 

 

I also have the choice, and personally, I like to have that choice.

On a slightly unrelated note, may I just say how nice it is to be able to see your images as you create your post.

ahhh thank you ...it’s not the show first post it’s the hide first post which I missed, as it’s at the bottom of the first post, and very easily missed because focus is on the post you’re reading not the first post.

However... my suggestion of repeating the last post on the previous page at the top of the next page still stands.

Shall we amend the title of this idea? 

‘Add last post of previous page to top of next page for multi-page threads’
