I'm OK with no positive or negative nods but I demand an ambivalence nod.

I'm seeing it to the right of my pic....but it's kind obscure in the banner pic

I see the "show unread posts since last visit", but not "show all unread posts".  I'd like to see the latter as well.

Also - can the link to the JH board be put back at the bottom?

Also is it possible to increase the size of the font in quoted material?  Maybe it's my old eyes, but it looks minuscule, like 8pt type.

It's there. Maybe it's hard to see because of the background?

I'll look into this. :)

Edit: Is that a little better?

Let me know if the "unread posts" feature keeps giving you trouble.

I don't see anything that says "show all unread posts".  I see the "show unread posts", but not "show all unread posts".  I highlighted all the text to make everything stand out, and it's definitely not there.

 I'm attaching a pic of my banner (unhighlighted) so you can see what I mean (or show me where it is in case I'm completely missing it somehow).

I'm using Firefox 4.0.1 in Windows 7, if that helps.

Okay I see what you mean now. But where did this feature exist on the old site? I don't remember having it. The new site doesn't have this feature either. You're seeing what everyone is seeing. Take a look at the JHL site, I don't see any option for this there either.

For now this is the link you can use to get the unread list to work like that.

I went over to the Jackson Heights board - I had to hunt for it a bit (I'd already forgotten where it was), but I found it.  I clicked on the "show unread posts since last visit" on the right.  I then scrolled down to the bottom of the page.  On the right side, at the bottom of the page of unread posts, there is a link that says "all unread topics".  I've attached a screen shot with it circled.  That's the one I'm referring to.

Thanks for the link you provided.

Oh cool, I had forgotten about that.

It's in the same place on this site too, it's just in the form of a "button" instead of a text link. :)

LOL - it was there the whole time?  I obviously need some sleep.

Thanks.

I'm noticing another issue with the "show unread posts" link - the regular one this time. I'm viewing my unread posts, and I click on one of them.  When I'm done reading it, I click the "show unread posts" again at the top of the page to bring me back to a refreshed list of unread posts.  However, the post I just read is still listed.  A hard refresh (with the shift key) clears it but not a regular page refresh.  It doesn't happen every time, but it's happened several times since yesterday.  This morning, it happened two out of three times.

Yeah. It was there the whole time. I had totally forgotten where it was myself. :)

I'll look into the other problem you are mentioning.

Edit: Made some updates to the server configuration. We'll see how that goes.

I love the lack of nods! They were so passive aggressive and trolly.
