Release Highlights/3.1.0-b4 wrote:Unread URLs - view=unread#unread URLs are now updated via js, so you can share/copy-paste them after clicking on them and still link to the correct post
I don't understand what this new feature is about. Can someone explain it to me, please?

https://area51.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopi ... ead#unread is automatically changed to https://area51.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopi ... 79#p265079 in the address bar. So i can share the link to this specific post (because the unread url is not the same for all users)

Thanks for explanation. I don't think I ever seen URL ending with view=unread#unread, but to be honest I don't look at address bar much.
