That would probably be a nice change since some folks disliked those checklists.

Also -- is there a setting in the phpBB software that enables a user to change the number of replies one can see on a single page (or show all replies to a thread on a single page)?

Overall, I love it! :D

One comment: I get blocked by the expanding "Jump to:" selection box when I try to click on the previous pages and my cursor is coming in from the lower right corner of the page. Maybe the selection box could require a click before expanding, or just a longer hover. But don't change it just for me. I can adapt. Does anyone else get hung up by this?

Hmm, I don't think so. I suppose it was developed that way so the main (administrative) setting could be used to balance the load of serving up page info.

Ok, I moved the poster checklist links to the drop-down when the mouse is moved over the poster username.

Yeah. I'm having the same issue. I'm sure I can adapt as well, or some of your suggestions might do the trick.

I am a computer dummy. In some of the strings (like this one) I am unable to see some of the prior posts. I see who posted, because their photo and screen name are visible, but their posts are missing. Maybe I have an old browser or something?

Hmm, a few people have seen this problem. Can u post the browser and version you're running? It might also be a Java update that's needed on your computer.

If you have that problem, you can always switch back to the old forum format (prosilver) by changing Board Settings/Edit display settings in User Control Panel.

Windows Internet Explorer 8, is that what you need? Also, when I hover over this topic on the homepage, I can see what you wrote. But when I open the string your comments are gone and just your photo and screen name are visible. Thanks Bill!

Ditto. Pic but no comments.

Any chance a clearing of browser cache fixes it?
It doesn't happen in my browser so I can't replicate it
