FYI, I plan on doing a Forum Upgrade sometime tonight. It's been awhile since it's been done here.

Nothing major going to change, just some small Fixes.

** This doesn't affect the Live Chat area, that will function as normal. - NOTE to those that may not know, that requires a separate registration and login process.

Hopefully all will go smoothly and we'll be back online as soon as possible.

Bill

One New thing we have is Twitter & Facebook buttons at the bottom of every Thread.

I'm not sure what to do with them, but we have them laugh

Something I've been playing with is making the links in the 'Active Topics' page go to the beginning of a thread instead of the last post.

I just changed 'Active topics' links to Beginning for purposes of this Poll, If you don't know what I mean you can compare with Links in the 'Recent posts' (in Left Column) which link to Last Post

Would the 'Active Topics' page change be a Good Thing?

Doug,

My aim is to give both options. It always bothered me that the text link went to the last post, but no one else had brought that up (until recently when George mentioned it).

There's a little Arrow that appears on some threads in Active Topics ([Linked Image]) which says 'Jump to New Posts' when you put the mouse on it, but I think it went to the first post (maybe on the last page?) I'd like to get that 'fixed' so both options would be there - I just have to 'Hack' into things a bit ... smile (and am not sure what I'm doing .... crazy )

Ahh!

Just thinking about sending you a PM for your input on this (as you brought it up)... smile

BTW, the individual Forum Pages list the recently active topics in order (stickies trump though) with text links pointing to beginning and last post date (right side) goes to last post in that thread.

Right now I've got the Arrow ([Linked Image]) always there, and linking to the Newest Post, and Text Link goes to beginning of thread.

How's that work for you? Anybody?

Bill

P.S. If this arrangement works for everyone I can probably change the Arrow to some kind of 'New Post' Button so it's obvious what it's for.
