    to answer your extra click for quick reply, go to the top of this thread, and play with display modes...
    icons are colourful yes. maybe replace them later.. step at a time.
    size we are working on.
    new posts... Jesse replaced them this morning with slightly updated vb2 icons, so they are the same now.

    Danke

    Cool - will carry on experimenting...

    Back to the "show new posts" page though, I have noticed that when refreshing the page, threads with new posts no longer come to the top of the page of results like they used to - they are still sorted by the times of the latest posts at the time of the original search - I guess the db query is not being re-run on a refresh?

    that would be a correct assumption, not quite sure why it changed. I want to look into it myself.

    The old system stored the search query in the db.. but would rerun it, I suspect it has more to do with searching for strings, and reducing db load, then the newpost function.

    Default missing icons

    The icons in the colum before Title/User name/date of Latest Forum Topics are missing on my system, execpt the "i" icon for Upgrades.
    I have a rather standard installation of XP.

    I'm sure I'll get used to it.

    I also miss the forum links on the left. With so much empty space, they'd be nice (re)addition.

    as you have been busy, I will forgive you that has been asked quite a few times so far, go to the top of the page, have a play with display modes - try threaded and hybrid.
    thats why it is set to click the reply button first.

    I can turn that function off, but it renderes threaded mode useless, so I am giving a month or so, so we have threads that actually use threaded mode, and let people have a play.
    Then I will do a vote on keeping it or not.

    *atm its site wide, I will look for a hack to maybe make it forum specific - the temp anyone...

    I'm missing a bit the possiblity of accessing all the forums directly from the homepage. A drop down menu or a list is most welcome.

    And, the new server is somewhat slower than the old one, is it true?
