Just FYI,  the View New Posts link will only show 'New Topics' not new posts in an old topic.

Just made it smarter too ;):
java script:var a=document.getElementsByTagName('a');for(i=0;i<a.length;i++){if((/display: ?none;/i).test(a.item(i).getAttribute('style'))){a.item(i).setAttribute('style','');}}

FYI, clicking on New: performs the same action as the 'unread button'.

Middle click doesn't work for some reason.

That's because "New" itself isn't a link. Clicking on it (middle or left) won't do anything.

That's the point I'm trying to put through quixin's head. :P

FWIW, I always click on new and it takes me straight to the most recent post.  If it is not supposed to, I am sorry, but it works great for me.

It's some Javascript magic. An onclick event of sorts. I think making "New" a link itself would have been better, in case someone comes along without javascript (disabled most likely)

I do not know what all the fuss is about, but New is a link.  At least for me it's working.  I click on New and it takes me straight to the newest post.

hmm... i'll have to try again. will re-post.

edit: yep, so it is a link. must be implemented in javascript as miquelfire pointed out, because there are no visual cues telling you it's clickable (e.g., cursor: hand, underline, or onhover color change). i'll see if i can find the time to at least give it the cursor: hand style... quixin feel free to give it a whirl yourself since you have access on the forums to do that sort of thing.

I believe I have a fix for that New: link.  I'll post when I have an update.

Ok this is fixed.  miquelfire, you can now use your middle-click without the bookmarklet.

Enjoy!
