Hmm, I'm not quite sure how to ask this, since I don't know how drupal works.

the way I use "Recent" (/tracker)

Maybe I'm just a lazy old coot, but I figured I'd ask if there's anyway to easily change the /tracker page's default behaviour.

New topics get flagged with a red star (to the left in the list), to read the post you click on the topic name. However, with new posts to threads you've already visited, one has to click on the (eg:) "2 New" (to the right in the list) to jump directly to the newest posts in that thread.

Using the tracker page, I usually start with the oldest post and work my way up the page, command-clicking as I go to open the topics into new tabs.

The "problem" is I have to keep jumping back and forth, left to right and back as I go up the list (new topics to the left and new posts-to-old-threads to the right.)

So is there any way to change it so I don't have to jump back and forth, so I can just go straight up the page clicking on the topic name and be taken directly to the first new post on the page? Since I'm using tracker anyway, it would make sense for a click on a topic to send me right to the posts I haven't yet seen rather than (as currently) to the top of the thread.

Apologizing in advance for being a troublemaker . . .
