    Just a little niggle...

    When I hit the Recent Posts button, it's not very easy to see which threads have been updated since the last time I looked.

    The thread title used to turn grey when it had been read but now it just seems to be a slightly less bold typeface in the same colour.

    We tweaked the system grey and made it darker so the old gits could read it. :wink: but unfortunately it affects every item that uses that colour.

    If there are new postings since you last refreshed 'Recent Posts' then a blue dot appears at the left of the title.

    No blue dot = nothing new to read.

    Or you could click on the 'New' tab, which will omit all the threads that haven't been updated since you read them.

    The point of the little blue dot being that if you click on it, it will take you to the first unread post in the thread - although I notice that clicking on the thread title seems to do that too, at least most of the time.

    Thanks for that, I hadn't noticed the blue dot.... That makes a great difference.

    Jonathan, are you on the right forum?
