Inaccurate unread posts

Often when I click on a thread instead of taking me to the most recent unread post it takes me anywhere from half a page to a few posts back before my last read post. It’s not a huge problem and it’s certainly preferable to skipping posts, just reporting it because it seems to be recent.

This happens to me then there are lots of pictures in a thread.

this. i suppose it is probably an issue of the webpage not telling the browser how much space a picture will take up (leaving that to the picture, which doesn’t load quickly in all cases) and the browser doing the jump to the pre-pic landing spot.

I think it has always done this, unless possessed is experiencing something different.

having a different way to deal with images in posts would probably be the only fix.

I’ve been thinking about adding some script to load images as users scroll rather than on initial page load because it would reduce mobile data usage and increase overall page load speeds considerably. It would also help with this issue.

If it’s always been happening I don’t know because it’s new to me and I haven’t changed phones or browsers. Again it’s not a huge deal but it is odd.

Any image hosted by a third party that doesn’t load quickly enough can cause it, so it would be dependent on network conditions. Could come and go at seemingly random intervals.
