It's nice that each forum is flagged with an unread-post icon. When I click that it takes me to the first unread post, and that works fine.

When I go back to the list of forums, it does not clear the unread-post icons to reflect that I have read those posts. Even F5 to refresh the page does not clear the icons.

Yes, I can't get it to show that I've read the thread unless I click on the link at the bottom to mark all forums read...

I'm still looking for the solution... If you want to assist...

The options in the poll are not related to the question. It seems that the poll questions and options for every poll are in a mis match order.

Just to clarify what wpolly and I miss about the old forum, I took a snapshot from another forum that uses phpBB. The snapshot hopefully will be successfully "attached" to this message.

wpolly and I miss the icons to the left and the "goto page: 1, 2, ..." for mutliple page posts.

To clarify about attaching files for anyone who is interested:

You cannot add an attachment when you edit a post, though if you did previously attach a file, you can change or delete that attachment when editing.

Previewing your message seems completely incompatible with attachments. When you preview, it doesn't show your attachment and "forgets" that you were even going to attach anything, so you have to attach the file again before you actually submit your post.

Attachments also don't show in the "Topic review" you see below when you are replying in a thread.

Default message panel width

I know its frustrating.

The message panel I am typing into is only 2 inches wide. Is there a way to increase this by about double?

Here is a picture of the new setup... The icon in the yellow circle means there is a new post... The links in the red circle are individual page links... The dot in the icon in the blue circle indicates that you have participated in that thread... The paperclip next to "New Software" means there is an attachment in the thread...

I'm not sure what is missing that you all want... Please be specific...

I see your point about the functionality of the "icons on the left" being present in this new forum software.

When you do a search (which is what clicking the "New posts" link does), the interface does not give you the page listing (1, 2, 3, ..., Last).

However, I took a closer look at the icons and realized that the "this thread has new posts" icon links directly to the first new post in the thread. This is actually better than a page listing for me because I only wanted the page listing so I could find the first new post. So, I "retract" my complaints about the new forum software.

Thanks for your help, Xyzzy.
