where's the "show new replies to post" link go?
« on: September 01, 2022, 06:33:46 AM »
Is this limited to just me, or did the two links of "show new replies to post" and "show new posts" just disappear? 
Frustrating, as that's the main way I keep track of responses to threads I'm participating in.

Must be just you. The link is still there for me. Any browser add-ons that might have misinterpreted this link as an ad?

I remember this coming up before. If you look to the upper right of the screen, it says Ďthe mustachian forumí with either an up or down pointing arrow. Click the arrow to show or hide the stuff thatís not showing for you.

It's really faint (poor contrast compared to background), so it's hard to notice until someone points it out. But plenty of people click it accidentally.

Picture of it. There's also other templates available in your profile that you might like that don't have this particular problem - ran through them all one day and decided I like the default the best, but you might find one that appeals to you.

From just a general screen layout, in addition to making that arrow more visible, the solution is to simply switch to an appropriately sized logo - if that thing was only as high as the space this "The mustachian forum" takes up, then visually it would appear to work more intuitively - as it is, the arrow is controlling a div quite a ways down the screen from the arrow itself which leads to "why does this thing make stuff appear / disappear way over there?"
