XF 1.5 Link to go directly to last post?


Active member
Hey guys,

I have used a hidden forum along with some thread redirects to apply custom permissions for some important threads on my forum. However, clicking the redirect brings people to the first post in these threads (these are continuing multi-page threads).

I would like to change the redirects to subfourm links instead, if I can find a consistent link pattern for going directly to last post in the thread (or last page).

I noticed that the main forum index takes you directly to last post, but it uses the post number itself and so can't be used as a permanent link.

Does anyone know of a link pattern that will accomplish this, or have a better solution I haven't thought of?

Did you ever find a solution to this?

With my previous software I was able to link the latest post of any thread with a thread-id.new qualifier... but that doesn't seem to work here. I would need it for a non-XF homepage linking to the forum.

Cheat way to do it is just to link to page 999999999 (or similar). If the page number is too high it will send you to the last page.
