"Recent unread topics" are all unread. I'm talking about the actual list of posts in a specific board.
That's working!

But not on unread posts since last visit. I am not sure if I really understand. Couldn't it be look the same as in the screenshot you posted? Of course "read" posts are not bold and of course not listed in "unread posts since last visit"

No, if you look at a list of all unread posts, they are all unread, it wouldn't make sense to bold them all there, since they could never be normal on that link/list. The username being bold isn't because it's unread on that list

There may be a way to "unbold" the username there but it doesn't appear to be quite so easy as the changes I already made. If I stumble onto the fix I may make it, but it doesn't seem like it's worth spending a bunch of time on.

OK, thanks. I understand what you mean, now. But something bold focuses my eyes and the thread titel is more important to me than the username. And it would make it consitent to the other views in the forum like you showed in your picture.

That's just my opinion.  :D

"Tahnk's" system sounds good. Is this something to say "Thank you" for a specific post? This would make it possible to faster find posts which are really helpful :)

OK nevermind it was easier to find than I initially thought to unbold the usernames.
But for some reason it won't bold the topics. At least it's consistent now.

Looking great.  :)
Thanks Jim (and everyone else involved)

Edit: One more thing, entirely incidental. The pfSense logo at the top no longer takes you to the main pfsense.org site.

Thank-o-Matic is on now, seems to work OK, but it'll need some testing. And since I can't thank my own posts, I may randomly thank some others. (And if someone could click it for mine, that would also be helpful)

I'd say that is a good thing... It always irked me that it led away from the forum. But it's debatable, could go either way.

Yeah, that was pretty annoying.

Like I say it's just something that has changed. Personally I used it to click through to get to the docs wiki for example. Not difficult to type it though. Maybe a link at the top somewhere?

The page links to long threads being on a different line from the page title irked me ... so I fixed that, too.

Not sure about links at the top of the page. None of the other pages interlink that I'm aware of. The doc wiki used to, but we "fixed" that a long time ago, too.

I gave "Thanks!" for your post. It looks like you can only "Thanks" one post per page.

Yeah it does seem to have a one-per-page limit. I'm not sure if that can be tweaked or not. For one reason or another the options don't show up like they're supposed to in the admin panel. I'll have to poke at that again later.

Is the thanks system for administrators only at present because I'm not seeing it?

So its not just me being stupid then?   ;D
(I was a little embarrassed to mention it)
I can't thank you enough...   No...   Really...   I CAN'T.

It appears it may be admin only right now. The button should show up on the right next to "Quote" etc.
