That seemed to do the trick. Thanks Fonix!

Another suggestion would be to put the newest post at the top of a thread so we don't have to filter through all the old stuff.
Isle Royale Trips: 2005 - RH to Windigo via Greenstone. 2006 - McCargoe Cove to Chippewa Harbor. 2007 - RH to Daisy Farm and back. 2008 - Feltmann loop. 2009 - McCargoe Cove to Chippewa Harbor. 2013 - Minong Ridge. 2014 - Windigo + Huginnin Cove. 2015 - RH water taxi to Hidden Lake to LC to DF to MB.

I would like to "second" the idea by philranger to put the new posts at the top of the list.

Alright, I didn't forget about anyone's feature requests...it just took some free time to get it done.

The new posts on top idea is a good one, and seems to be popular. Unfortunately, I can't seem to make it work. So what I've done is change the forum code so when you click the "View new posts" link above the picture in the upper right-hand corner, it now displays the subject and body of the new post(s). Then you can just click the linked subject to jump to that thread so you can respond. Hopefully that will work for you all until I can find a way to make the new posts float to the top of the threads.

Let me know if it's a yea or nay on this new method.
