    When I go to reply to the thread that was sent to my email, all the posts are very old. How do I find recent ones?

    If you're in a thread with more than one page, there'll be a page list at the top and bottom of the page. Tap on the highest page number and scroll to the bottom of the page. If the most recent post is quite old it means that the thread is dormant, with no new posts having been made.

    To skip the posts you've already seen, you can also use "Go to first unread". You'll find it at the top of every thread, somewhere here:

    As well as at the bottom, directly after the last post of a page:

    It's behind the last page's number.

    In the list of page numbers at the top and bottom of the page on a thread with more than one page, the go to first unread button is just to the right of the highest page number listed.

    Or, if you just want to read the last reply, tap the time/date below the member listed at the right of a thread.

    This will always show the last post of a thread, and when you select it, you'll skip all the other posts and will be taken right to the end of the thread, to the last reply.

    This particular thread isn't long enough to have page numbers yet. One more post (after mine) should do it, unless you've changed the default posts-per-page settings.
