Changing behavior of clicking thread titles for users


Well-known member
I refer to this: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/random-questions-answered.114/#post-38320

As most of my users have come from a vb forum, they are used to having a separate icon to go to the first unread post, as am I. I always find it annoying when I click the thread title and am pushed to the first unread post because usually I want to see the entire thread again.

Is there a way to turn off this default behavior and provide a vbulletin-like icon for going to the first unread post?

The icon already exists:


To change this, when a user click and go to the start of the thread, open the template thread_list_item and replace this:

<a href="{xen:link "threads{xen:if '{$thread.isNew} AND {$thread.haveReadData}', '/unread'}", $thread}"
To this:

<a href="{xen:link threads, $thread}"
