Already exists. Check the color of the icon to the left of the thread/forum. I get it red when there's something new.

I run every thing through 'privoxy' which filters images/banners and other things (sites). I also use 'opera' in user mode. Mainly to deal with font size issues by using a customised css file. And i turn java script off as well (grin).

But with the proxy turned off, java script turned on, and in author mode i don't get any indications that there are new posts in a thread --- on the 'index' page. Or in a history list of threads i've posted to. I do get the red icon in the actual thread though, next to the heading part of new posts. But ... i have to actually go to the thread to see that. And when i have, i can tell which is a new post and which isn't. As the new posts will be 'post' my own :).

An actual indicater on the index page next to the thread heading, to show there have been posts after the one i made, would save me a lot of time navigating around the site. The same holds true for a history list on posts.

This is also one of the sites i have configured 'privoxy' to accept all cookies from as well.

Yeah (grin), i have greater control over it using style settings though than what's provided using just a simple 'zoom' effect. Which can still leave some instances in question.

Great to see this up! Though I haven't been quite active, I like to lurk around. There have been some great discussions on these forums, that I missed when it went down.

Anyway, thanks guys for bringing this up back and so soon!! :D :mrgreen:

Hurray! From the tone of what I had been reading elsewhere it looked like the forums weren't coming back. Thanks guys!

Good to see the forum back, thanks for not giving up on it.

The only thing I can't get used to is that the user information is on the right and the message is on the left. I did try the subsilver2 theme but it's not as elegant as prosilver, wonder if there's a prosilver based theme with the user info on the left?

Yeah, I guess that there is a need of retrieving old members also.
