    Default ? about the new forum layout

    If the last person making a post has a long name I do not have the option of clicking go to the last post.
    Is this something with my computer settings?

    Dan,
    Every post I see has at least a partial blue box with arrows to it that you can click on to get to the last post.

    I've always had mine set to show the last post at the top of the thread.

    Maybe it's just you and me Dan.
    Speaking for myself only I am not the most technology savvy person and I have an old computer.

    Dan, I stand corrected. After further review I did find a couple of names long enough to where there was not an option to go to the last post.
    However, if you go to forum actions, then select General Settings, go down about half way down to Thread Display Options, you can then change the Thread Display to show the last post when you open the thread and not the first.

    One small item when you go to the New Post function is the third column from the left the time of posting is being cut off because the column is not wide enough.

    The "Similar Thread" automated display is quite annoying.

    Agreed.

    And the old forum differences for posts, new posts, etc., were more contrasting and easier and quicker to see the differences of what you were looking at, now I find myself having to look at the date of the post, the ones which state "Today" are the ones I click on.

    I know that "old" in technology is equated to "outdated", and, if so, then I prefer the "outdated" easier to use forum without all the things in this one "new" and "updated" forum. At some point "updating" just becomes "busy work" and interferes with the product's usefulness ... but that may just be me ...

    Kind of like going into t store you go into all the time and every 6 months they rearrange the store so that things are no longer where they used to be and you now have to walk past things you didn't want to find what you did want - which is their way of increasing "impulse buying"
