Those of you using the "flat" forums will notice a drastic change. I had some problems with the layout, so I fiddled around and got it to look even more like a PHP-BB style layout.

Recent posts

I hate to sound like I'm whining, and I'm sure you have enough things to keep you busy, but:

when I click on the "Recent" tab, is there any way the name of the most recent poster could appear? (perhaps instead of the thread starter)

When I see the recent list, it would be nice if I could click on something that would take me directly to the most recent post.

Click on "new"

The word "new" in that list is a link which will take you to the most recent post.

As for the other half, I'll look to see if it's possible.

This one displays a bit more information .. the forum area it was posted in, and the name of the most recent commenter.

I really dig that tracker,

I really dig that tracker, the blogs, the html/bb code and other formatting options. The search function needs work though. I enter common words like 'controller' or 'bike' but the engine returns nothing.

Ah....

Uhm.. the search engine relies on an index being built by a background process which I'd forgotten to enable. Thank you for reminding me. It's now enabled.
