I'm working on the Unread/Last Posts issue.

I'm guessing this is most commonly used from the "Unread posts" page?
After whining, I found that by clicking the little page icon beside the thread title, that functionality was indeed already there! Sorry for not clicking around more, first.

Maybe add accessibility themes that can be selected in the user control panel, as some other sites have done? With my old eyes, it's hard to read light green text on a beige background.

So I made an update and by default, clicking the thread title takes you to the last unread post.

If you've already read everything it will take you to the first post. It might be nice if it'd take you to the last post if you've already read the thread, so I'm looking into how to do that.

This flow might make the most sense:

If logged in:
-If unread posts, take to first unread
-Else, go to last post.
If not logged in:
-Go to first post
It looks to be working great tonight Martell. Thanks!! Clicking the thread title takes me to the first unread post. Perfect!!

I was poking around and it looks like there isn't much text that is green unless you are mousing over a link- is that what you mean- when it turns green as you hover over it? There's also a ton of green icons- maybe those are hard to see?

The software does support offering multiple styles. The problem is if I add a second one, any changes we make, we have to make to them both, so it'd get harder to support. I'm hoping we can figure out a solution with this one.

Thanks for upgrading the software. This wasn't too bad a transition.

I like it so far. Thanks for all the hard work that must have gone into the change. Let's hope this brings some more folks in and adds to everyone enjoyment.

I like it, it seems easier to read and navigation is intuitive. Experimenting with a photo drop from PC. Hmmm... still says it won't take over 2MB. Any suggestions?

That seems to work, very similar to the old version. Ok for me.
