Why can't I scroll to the end of a thread?

Well how 'bout that. I, too, never noticed it. Or, rather, I just assumed it was informational, not a clickable asset to send me to the last post. Cool. Thanks!

Furthermore, when entering a topic, click or tap the post count or last post date to enter it at the end.

Clicking or tapping the post title wil always take you to your last read position in the topic. If you do not have a read position, then you will enter at the top.

Another protip, adding last to the end of the URL (replacing the reply number) will also take you to the last post

On a laptop the “end” button takes you to the very end of the page, and “home” takes you to the very beginning.

On any device with a physical keyboard, that is the case yes :wink:
