Threads that always go back to post 1 on iPhone

I'm having issues with a few threads (in AA forum if it matters) where a thread that I have read always goes back to post 1 when I try to read new replies. It doesn't happen on most, but it seems to be happing more and more.

Using IOS on iPhone if that matters.

Since I'm posting I figure I might as well say that I always have issues typing a reply on my phone. The text box to type always scrolls up and hides the line I am currently typing. I can get around this sometimes by scrolling the entire page down a little but it doesn't always seem to work. Any ideas?

Subscribing as Iíve also noticed this (also iPhone running mobile Safari).

For the second issue, I think the problem is that it adds a line break when you start a reply, so itís scrolling to what it thinks is the end. Tapping just below the text and then deleting the extra line fixes it for me.

I had reported the hidden cursor/hidden line before and thought I'd post it again as no fix has been provided yet.

I guess you mean this?

Can you link to a thread where it's happening?
Also, what method/button are you using to get to the latest posts?

I probably should have said it always goes to post 1. Sometimes they do that. But the particular thread I was talking about when I posted this (and incorrectly said post 1) is below. This one always opens to post 16. Actually it's a pretty funny post though...

To open, I just click on the thread title. Most of the time this takes me to the first unread post. A small amount of times it takes me to post one and sometimes it takes me to a random post.

Why canít AA Cut EXP's a break on SWU's at time of ticketing?

It might just be where you're clicking?

If you click the thread link, it should go to 1. If you click the little arrow (which is GO TO FIRST UNREAD) it will go to the last read post.

On mobile there isnít that distinction - just clicking the thread should take you to the earliest unread post.

I'm not sure that's what the functionality is...

My Flyertalk seems to have changed overnight, and now all threads that I click on from my subscriptions go straight to post 1. (And obviously, being subscriptions, theyíre threads Iíve at least partially read already.)

same with me I'm having the same issues in the past I would just press on my Flyertalk it would show how many subscriptions I had that were unread. I then click on the subscribed tab and in bold the unread threads would appear to the last unread. With the new update I'm not seeing the same but my Flyertalk button doesn't work and when you go to subscriptions as you mentioned you go to the first post not the last unread
