Looks good!  The descriptives are more informative.

Hi Paul,

I like the look.  But I see that were people have previously embedded links to other posts in their messages then these seem not to work now.  Is that a temporary glitch due to pages having moved?  Is it possible to fix it in some way?

Regards,

Les.

I don't like the new "read" and "unread" icons, they look the same besides the slight color difference.... other than that I like it... would be nice if there was an icon for unread and no icon for read messages or something equally obvious

Let me make sure I have this right, Sam.

You don't like the "slight" color difference between blue and orange?

How lazy are you?

Actually, the icons are on my list of things to change.  It'll probably be December before I do any more work on it, though.

I'm with Sam on this one. It's not logical to have the same tickmark (check) symbol to mean both "new messages" and "no new messages"!

Maybe we'd get used to the colours, but either no icon or a cross (x) to indicate "no new messages" would be much clearer.

Also, i notice the search has defaulted back to 1 week again. Can we default to All Posts?

Apart from those - great job!!!!

Thanks!

Simon,

I actually agree about the icons, I was just giving Sam a hard time.

The default time in the search field is far more difficult to change in this version than the previous.  I'm still going to give it a shot, but it might take a while.
