    Though much impressive work is being done, any perceived imperfections always tend to attract comments.

    So, it annoys me a little that the number of pages of a thread is not directly visible and one has to hover his mouse over their place to see them.

    In the example below, the first and last threads actually have of two pages.

    A few days later, do you still prefer Xenforo's default behavior? (bold links open first unread message)

    I'm not sure why but the little blue arrow for the link to the newest comments is not visible. There seems to be a place holder and link available but the space is empty. I think the arrows where visible a day or two ago.

    Same thing here. Definitely not a cache issue this time! :D

    Also, you'll want to know that when Matt mentioned me in the post with the Tag, I got no notif, neither of a post, nor a tag (I understand, you said it's in testing yet). This has happened a few times ago.

    Yes, still prefer the default. And like Cliff and Marno I too am not seeing the blue >> anymore, its just a blank space. If I hover over where it should be I get a box saying go to first unread, but the >>s don't ever appear. Clicking there still works though.

    Ok, so I think we now have the best of both worlds...
    The issue about clicking on the forward arrow or the little dot for first post vs. first unread post is that the target was too small.

    Considering you prefer Xenforo's way of handling unread topics, I have reverted back to this behavior, so when you click on a bold title, that will take you to the first unread post in the topic.

    If you want to go to the first post in a topic, you can now click on the user avatar to your left. This corresponds to the avatar of the original poster, so it kind of makes sense and in my opinion is way handier than going to that user's profile.
