It seems many people are unhappy with the post jumping from the new live thread update addon. I explained a bit about it here, in case anyone hasn't seen it:

Not that I've found yet, unfortunately.

The old addon that we used to use for that had actual options, but the developer stopped updating it a couple years ago, so I had to find an alternative. This alternative that I found offers like no customization options at all from what I've seen, and I'm actually pretty unhappy with how it works in general. I'm going to keep looking for a better alternative, but I can't guarantee that I'll find anything.

In the meantime, if you just scroll up a bit on the page it should stop jumping to the latest post. I think it only jumps when you're viewing posts towards the bottom. And maybe after I get everything else kinda settled with this update I can maybe look at creating a special usergroup or something for the people that don't want it.
We give the live thread update to people that donate as a perk, and with the new addon there's unfortunately no way to have that without also having the post jump. And, unfortunately, it's something we're stuck with for the time being.

As I said in the above quoted post, you can manage it by scrolling up towards the top of the page and it will stop jumping. I understand that not everybody wants to do that though, so if you don't want the post jump at all, reply in this thread. I'll create a separate group for those of you that have donated/won awards and don't want it. Just keep in mind that you won't have live update at all if you opt out. You'll have to manually refresh whenever you want to see new posts.

(Also, please be patient because this might not be something that I'll have time for today. But if you post in here I promise I will get it handled for you within the next couple days.)

This definitely doesn't work for me a significant percent of the time, but in either case, yeah, I think I'm gonna opt-out.

Thanks for putting the work into finding a way to do this! When I catch up with my bills I'll donate again (embarrassed).

I'm going to try something. I'm hoping I can just override that one permission with a new group so I don't have to set up every single permission again and move people over. Let me know if it works for you or not.

I *seem* to be getting the old "new messages have posted" bar instead of auto-loading.

Can you please take me off when you get some time, aveline @aveline

Thank you.

Yeah, that's why the new addon sucks. You kinda have to have both on or none at all. I'll switch it back on right now.
