Please add a "view new posts" to each page

Please add a "view new posts" to each page.
I need to keep clicking back to board index to view new posts. Every other forum I am in that uses this software has done that & it is so much easier to navigate.

thanks!!!

Jeff- a "view new posts " link to each page so when someone clicks on a topic, they do not need to keep going back to the board index to see other new posts, but can go from new topic to new topic....when viewing any topic

urbanscootin currently has a "view your posts" on each page, but not a "view new posts" link. I have little use for viewing my posts only, but like to see the new posts without extra step each time to go back to the board index and hit "view new posts" on the main page each time.


both these forums have added them.


THANKS!

If you look at the prosilver layout (which I use) versus the standard layout the view new posts isn't part of the consistent layout (keeping the top bar clean)

I'd be curious to see how you browse the site- do you use tabs? I've never used that "view new posts" button. :P

Jeff - I use Firefox with tabs for opening multiple sites, but do not usually like to use tabs within sites--too much clutter.

The other forums added the "view new posts" links when members requested it..so I thought they custom programmed it in. Personally I see no reason for the "view your posts" link on each page--who would want to view their posts only???

Very self important people? :))

These folks must be reasonably savvy with PHP & HTML because it isn't a trivial feature to add- that said some amount effort I think it would be possible- but it really wouldn't mesh with the flow of the layout.

ProSilver (fixed width) layout just seems a lot cleaner than the variable with theme that those other two sites use (one is running phpBB 2)

Jeff- I thought it might have been an easy fix. Don't worry about it--I'll just do the extra steps or use more tabs.
thanks
