New look on news threads?

  1. Am I going mad, or did Julio just do a change to the way news threads are being displayed?

    The post has no header, but instead has the "New Topic" and "New Reply" buttons under it.

    Imo, it looks much better than the regular thread-view, since it makes it more obvious what the thread is about, and what is the story and what are the comments.

    Though I don't think it'd look as good on the regular threads...



    Keep up the good work Julio :)

    Well, I've found one problem with the new look.

    It's no longer the forum top, but the frontpage top.
    Now, this wouldn't be a problem if the pull-down menu at the bottom of the thread were still there, but it's gone too.

    This means that there is no longer any easy way to get back to the "Frontpage News" list. You have to click on the forum button and then navigate back to the "Frontpage News" forum.

    Can we have either of them back? (Don't care too much which, as long as one of them show up ;))

    I really miss the "Go to first unread post" link at the top too..

    Will see if I incorporate back some of those elements although at first instance the idea was to make the pages as simple looking as possible for better integration... np, will work on that later on the week.

    Cool, thank you :)

    I really like the look of it, but it makes it harder to navigate....

    I have added back the navigation pull down menu.
