forum index is going to change significantly once we sort out exactly how to do it.

Font will be changing, probably a bit bigger than it is now.

We can probably do something with the first post on the page to highlight it a bit, have to work that out though.

Yes the forum index icons are read, unread, sticky, locked I think. We'll probably do custom ones soonish.

There already is two colours but it's white and light grey, is that not working for you? It's very similar colour scheme to the old forums.

Last page we'd love to do, but it involved modifying some code, it's on our list!

When replying, could we get it so more than just the post you click reply on shows, like maybe the last 10 posts?

not yet no.

If you post on a thread that's been moved (eg the forum language one) it makes the forum think it was the last post in both the original forum it was posted in and the forum it was moved to.

I think you can stop it putting a shadow topic in - we never used to use shadow topics before, just move stuff.

It does work. Its just that the two colours are so similar that they don't really stand out from one another. I think you need a bit more of a contrast between them.

When going into a thread you can;t jump to a later page if the thread is too long. It used to offer the first pages as a link and then the last 3 or so. Now we have the first 9 pages linked, but if you want to go further you need to hit the last button.

The pages at the bottom update when you advance (if you go to page 9 of the massive Wills Wilde thread in Libcommunity and scroll to the bottom it will show a page 10).

But to get a phpBB-like paging system, the relevant code would be inside of include/pager.include. The theme file should call the appropriate functions and customize the results.
