can we get a New Post link up on top? I'm having a hard time dealing with the way new posts are formatted as well

oops never mind. I've been clicking "view most recent post" at the bottom and not liking what I see.

No, this forum format kind of sucks. I'd like to see "view most recent threads" up on top but not how it links to when you use the link on the bottom where it actually shows each post rather than each recent thread.

This is probably going to have to be one of those things that you'll get used to, after a while.  It's a different format than some other Forums, but I like how the main page is organized by topic and the way the icons are darker if there are posts to be read there.

I don't want to see unread posts. I'd like to see most recent posts or "today's posts" but in thread format not a bunch of open posts in series but as a thread index. Is there some setting somewhere how the threads are displayed? For instance if you were to click here you would see all of today's post

When you click on unread posts since since last visit, you will see the newest threads on the forum that you haven't read.  They are sorted.  NEWEST FIRST AT THE TOP.  If you only want to look back for today, then it is your choice.  If you want to look back further, then also an option.  Next time you visit, again you will see the newest (unread) posts since your last visit.  No need to look at a post that you have already read unless there is something new to see - then it will show up again.

Never mind, you aren't getting it. *edit - I wanted to come back to this post and edit it but it was nowhere to be seen. I had to go a round about way to get back here. Maybe I want to continue reading the thread but it's gone!

Yes, you're right about that.

Sometimes I luck out and I can still backstep to it in my browser, but otherwise you just have to rely on your memory (the kind in your head, not in your PC) AFAIK.  After a while you will remember where things are (except for "The Watch Thread", which is in Talk Story).  You can also open new browser tabs on the initial scan or when posting to the new threads.  I do that sometimes but it does lead to clutter in my browser...

There is no such thing as the perfect ______________, I guess.  :-[

But I'm certainly open to suggestions.

Now sit back down and do as you are told or you wont be allowed no more postin' here sonny boy.


(Just kidding on the last one... just trying to ease the transition for you).

Cheers,

Lol - yeah, you understand where I'm coming from. Thanks for making light of it. I feel better now  :D

IMO  - Vbulletin is just about perfect.

Hell, I'll do it. Now where's my grill cleaner scrubber?  :)


*you're right, this will take some getting used it. It's weird but using the back button works. I'm just glad it's in my mouse - the back button.
