Thanks Ron -
that's actually considered to be a feature that it takes you to your post at the top. The idea is that if you are replying to something farther down the list and it took you to the most recent post each time that it would be annoying. - clicking "go to top" takes you to the top of the list again.
Fred: The threading issue is something that it remembers from the last time you were at the forum. So if you click "Theaded View" or "Flat View" that is what it will use from then on. - Also, if you click "Collapse Threads" or "Expand Threads" in the main title list it will remember that as well. -- that's the idea anyway.
That's how it's supposed to work anyway. The "new" markings are continually wrong - this i know. I'm going to be upgrading this forum to the most recent version around the middle of December -- and that upgrade addresses the "new" problem, and the problem that still shows up every once in a while dealing with not being able to post. -- it's also going to give us better search abilities, like making one search across all the forums!
Thanks alot for pointing out these problems - anything that is ever strange, even if you're not sure if it's supposed to be that way or not - i'd like to hear about. I try to keep this thing running good....
