I really liked the 'new posts' button at the bottom of each thread the previous version had. It seems to be missing. New posts can be found on the quick links.

My typical board surfing was to hit 'new posts' when I got here, open a tread read to the bottom and then hit 'new posts' at the bottom of the thread. It appears I will now need to scroll up, select quick links and then select 'new posts'. I guess there is also the back button on the browser and I believe there is a key stroke that will send me back a page.

Thank You Brandon for caring and keeping the board up to date! One of the things that I have grumbled about (to myself) is that all links on the board open in the same window. Not sure about others, but I think it would be nice if the board would open a new window for links. Muchas Gracias!

I like this, just got to get used to it. Thanks for caring or should I say I'm happy you have not kicked you addiction either. Makes it easier to deal with ours.

Wow, my Andoid phone likes this! I used it but was not a big fan of TapaTalk.

I can fix this. I recall doing that last time as well.

This is a very common complaint amongst all most board owners. The PHPBB team made certain architectural decisions that resulted in that functionality. Really hoping somebody makes an extension to address this.

Oh one other thing, I will be adding a dark theme for those that want it, just waiting for the style colorized to get fixed.

Low and behold, there is an extension for it :)

Now external links will open in a new window. Internal forum links still open in the same window.

Oh, and you can now mouse over topics to get topic previews :)

It currently shows the first and most recent post. I think this is more useful then most forums.

Also just added a "Scroll to Top" arrow in the lower right corner. Hitting this will take you to the top of the page immediately.

I just wanted to add a "thank you" for the updated forum. I really like being able to see the latest posts in each subforum from the forum home page. I also like the jump to button on the bottom of each page.

The mouseover is nice. I can't find the "mark all forums as read" though. Found it! Is text size adjustable for reading?

Is the new post icons correct? I'm getting what looks like a 404 message.

Not as part of a forum preference. Just hit control + on your keyboard and it will increase the size of the page. Control - to make it shrink back down.

I haven't found the color change yet. My tagline is horrible to read with the light background.

There is only one style currently. Previous there was two styles (light and dark). Best to choose font colors that will work for either color style.
