You're welcome. I don't like the aesthetic look of the arrows on the right, but the utility is high.

I read a post yesterday that said an upgrade for Xenforo is not far from release. It has a sizeable list of improvements and I can't wait!

It includes new features and improvements such as:
- Best Answer and post voting
- Progressive web app, so the site acts like an app on your phone (think i got that right)
- Uploaded image improvements + gallery
- New tabbed Quick Reply
- Other Quick Reply improvements
- Forum Activity Summary email, periodically sent
- Search forums where, for example, I could have a forum that just lists all the unanswered threads from the entire site

Cool! I especially like the first and last items. I'm actually already pretty impressed at how well the site does on mobile, but better is always better!

Apparently, Progress web apps is where its at nowadays. I think it allows the website to use your phones notifications and stuff like that. More blipping and bleeping to keep you addicted.

Yes, the first and last items interest me the most too. The last item could have some creative uses. e.g. Perhaps showing all threads marked as Solved, or whatever.

The new controls in the post window are buggy. I just tried the quote and it didn't work correctly. I couldn't get out of it once I turned it on.

@Pat Hartman Try clearing your browser cache. That fixed many issues for me.

Jon at the bottom of each thread it used to show who was "viewing." That is missing now.
