And don't care about the page ID. It doesn't need page ID, it'll redirect and open correct post in correct page with post-id only. Just make sure the red marked options are enabled and try to click the links of topics. You'll see that all works fine, and it goes to correct post with the correct page (even if the page number doesn't exist in the URL).

Hi, 

I see that the redirection of the page is the native functionality to go to the last unread post.

Unfortunately, this redirection can be really slow sometimes, users are really not satisfied with this feature, and I understand them.

Is there an evolution planned on this point so that the link goes directly to the right page of a topic?

It is not possible to calculate from the recent.php page where the post will be located according to the number of posts per page and the date of the post?

The redirection only works if the topic has more than one pages of replies. However, you can switch to the direct link generation with this hook code. Put it in the functions.php file of your current active WordPress theme or install the Code Snippets plugin and insert the code as a new code snippet. Then go to Dashboard > Forums > Dashboard admin page and click the [Delete all caches] button.

add_filter('wpforo_build_direct_unread_post_url', '__return_true');

@mouette,

The solution is not depended on OS, that has zero relation to your iOS.

So I don't have other advice here. If it works then it should work on all OS's, just make sure your login status is the same, and you don't have cache. This is all.

@robert Hello

after adding the code in your first reply, we don't have any problem with Chrome (PC and Mobile)

But, we have somes troubles on Firefox and iOs, when a topic is divided in pages, the rediction is on the top of the last page, but not on the last post wanted

Do you have any idea about this trouble ? any other feedbacks ?

Thanksss in advance for your help

@robert I think it is an issue link to the navigator, not to the OS

The issue is there with Opera too.

Since there is a redirection from the top of the page to the last unread message, I think there is an issue with a JS function which is not available for some browser, don't you?

@bono,

I'd look at this issue if you provide with some video showing the issue.

@robert Thanks for your answer, We found and fixed the problem

I give you the part of code below in wpf-assets\js\front-end.js :

The first line in bold, the fix (with just before the code in comments which was not working), and the second one in bold the code which was not reached

 

$wpf(document).ready(function($) {
    var wpforo_wrap = $('#wpforo-wrap');

    var scroll_to;
    //var exreg = new RegExp('\/' + wpforo.template_slugs['postid'] + '\/(\\d+)\/?$', 'i');
    //var match = location.pathname.match(exreg);
    var match = location.hash.match(/^#post-(\d+)$/);
    if(match){
        scroll_to = $('#post-' + match[1]);
    }else{
        //scroll_to = $("#m_, .wpforo-members-content, .wpforo-search-content", wpforo_wrap);
    }
    ifscroll_to !== undefined && scroll_to.length ){
        $('html, body').scrollTop(scroll_to.offset().top - 25);
    }
