Thank you very much, Jordan!

Edit: One thing I noticed that is missing (and that is why I don't like the other Elvis forum), is that it was very useful when clicking on a thread, it immediately led me to the last unread post. Now this feature is gone from here too :(
Yes, that's what i miss too... other then that, looks fine Jordan! :!:

I'm in the process of manually rewriting the code to allow this. I've just completed the changes on the modern, and modern classic themes. The change has now been implemented on all styles

I have some critic points, though. I really like the new outfit but I liked it better when the "display your posts" button (or whatever it was called) was visible (not buried like now in the "Quick links".
Also I liked it better when the "Thank you" button was on the bottom of each reply.
Also that "Guidelines" button right next to the last Board index button hasn't been chosen very well, I think. Only a few remarks, but that's just me. Of course, Jordan, you can't please everyone.

I'm pretty sure I can accommodate a couple of your requests @lucky jackson
Where do you think a better place for the "guidelines" link would be? I think the general idea of having it as a page, instead of a global topic on every forum/subforum cleans things up a bit.

Yes, where did the "Thank You" button go?

Good question, Jordan. Maybe before the "Notifications" button (which is, IMHO, superfluous too). I just turned off most of the settings. I don't need to be remembered each time somebody thanks me :P

Like I said, no criticism, buddy. You did a marvellous job.

Since the Mega Upgrade, which has certainly brightened things up, I'm getting an 'SQL Error' message. Any suggestions, please?

Thanks Jordan

Only getting the error message on the ipad, doing nothing different than I've ever done. On main PC, no problems.

Will try and send screenshot, failing that, I will quote message verbatim.

That's interesting. Thanks for the report. It may have to do with the"responsive" features I implemented for "I" devices. Please keep me informed.

It does seem strange that the thank you post icon is now at the top of a post instead of the bottom.

I'd also like the quick reply tab to be displayed by default, if possible. :)

This is more of a issue with the main site, but as soon as I get a chance I'll see what I can do. :)
