My count isn't increasing either.

The only way I can get the View New Posts to clear is to click the button, then log off and log back in. Otherwise they stay.

Oh wait, it just did. Maybe it's not going up on posts with quotes.

That's how is works normally. Reine is seemly saying that hers never clear off unless she deletes cookies.

As for me I think the below may be a temp or permanent fix for the missing button problem. As you can see the "go" button is hidden by the green side panel. I believe if the whole box and button were just moved below the "export this view" box and button, it would solve that problem.

I kept wondering why it seemed the post titles were wrapping upon themselves, but that is not the case. It is actually the balance of the description text from the post above coming down. In this case the word "Topic" is overwriting the short post title of "Hello".

If the Second Line could also have a set length, then go to ... (dots) I think that would solve the problem.

Victoria, I love your 'Go' button!

Before the re-vamp of the forum, though, every time you came to TeaChat, the View New Posts would clear out the ones that were there on your last visit, even if you didn't log off, so there would only be a few new posts every time.

barring a move of the "go" button, you can also use tab to get to the one you need.

Breadcrumb trails have been added to topic page bottoms allowing you to return to either the sub forum, category, or main page.

Woot!

I spoke with Ilya today. He is now working on problems a group at a time. I am hoping to talk to him again in a day or two and keep things moving in a positive direction.

The email notifications in general will be a topic of one of our discussions!!! 8)
