Hi paul.

I was wondering, could the new marker thingy when looking at the list of threads be hyperlinked so that it would take one straight to the new posts so that one does not have to do all of the tedious scrolling about to find where the new posts begin?

so that If'n I was looking in the critter care thread and saw someone had somethin new to say on the coop design thread for examples I could just hit that button that say's new and it would line up the new posts on me screen so I could see the new data without rereading anything.

I totally understand it the code mods it would take are more complicated than the upgrade would be worth,

Brice,

I would like the feature to go one further:  that there could be some sort of visual marker in the thread. 

But, that would require software modification.  At this time I'm looking at the idea of moving to new software, and the software I'm looking at not only doesn't support that, but their current "new" algorithm isn't nearly as good as the one here.  Sorry.
