Default "View First Unread" link from "My Posts" search results

Maybe there's a better way to follow multiple threads one has posted in... but what I end up doing is clicking on Search > My Posts, scrolling down to the thread(s) that have the "new posts" icon, clicking on the link that takes me to my most recent post in that thread, and either start reading (if I see that there have only been a few new posts) or scrolling to the top of the page and clicking on the "View First Unread" link (if I know there have been a lot of new posts subsequent to mine).

What I'd like to see is a way to go from the My Posts search results directly to the first unread post in a thread. There's a square box icon immediately to the left of each date which doesn't appear to do anything.... any chance that box can be replaced with the "View First Unread" icon?

It's easier to bookmark http://forums.catholic.com/subscript...ewsubscription because all your threads are together on that page, and the most recently commented-on are at the top, complete with "Go to first new post" buttons on the ones that have been commented-on since your last visit.

In that case, is it possible to "auto-bookmark" any threads one posts in?

If so, can this also be done retroactively (as in, "bookmark for me every thread I've already posted in")?

Found it, under the profile options. I assume this only applies to threads one posts in *after* changing this setting.

Yes. Search for yourself, open each thread you want a subscription for, and under "Thread Tools" select "Subscribe".

I know I can do it manually. I was hoping for (maybe) a button I could push or a script I could run that would auto-subscribe me to all threads I've already posted in (or search for all threads I've posted in in the last N weeks, select them all, and click on a button that would subscribe me to each of the selected threads) -- i.e. as if my profile had been set up to auto-bookmark the threads I post in from Day 1.
