Mobile vs desktop experience

I'm not sure if this is on the radar, I didn't see another thread about it in this forum.

Mobile version, each thread has a link to the first unread post. This is useful enough that it doesn't really make sense to use BF on a PC.

But the mobile version doesn't seem to have a way to get to notifications, and in the thread view, it shows the number of likes on each post except the ones you made.

FYI.

There is indeed a "Go to First Unread" button in mobile. If you look at the thread listing in a forum, some will have a speech bubble with a red dot, to the right of their titles. That will take you to First Unread

The latter was just designed as a way to keep track of which posts you've liked, to my knowledge.

Is that feature - go to first unread post - going to come to the desktop site?

Not yet, anyway. I just bookmark it on my phone search engine. Just as fast.

I feel dumb for missing that. I'm pretty inquisitive.

That button is a godsend. The night I turned 40, a brain surgeon came in through my window and took part of my brain. Now I can't remember what posts I've read, where I left my keys, what I had for breakfast, etc. I've been trying to find my place in a thread, experiencing all these posts for the first time again, and feeling a weird sense of deja vu. I've heard the evil brain surgeon comes back every 5 or 10 years and makes it worse.
