My bookmark is the unread posts button, so I don't even see it. I don't have any issue with the normal index.

My bookmark is the unread posts button, so I don't even see it. I don't have any issue with the normal index.

I do the same. The only time I see the index is when I hit the ''mark all topics read'' button (I think that's it). Or if I'm searching for something.

Personally, I don't mind the tabs, especially once I got used to them. Plus, I can click on the blue 'The Forestry Forum' just above the Lucas Mill banner and take me back to the regular index... if it stays that way.


Edit;  it should've read "mark all messages as read"

I was thinking for a bit that nothing had changed or that you had changed it back again to the classic.

Finally noticed the difference.  I would say that either way works.  I think that the new format is slightly more user friendly as one does not have to scroll as far down the page to find the other links/sub-forums and I like that for overall ease.

I would say I prefer the new format over the old format but either works pretty much the same.

My first impression is that I don't like it.  It is incompatible with my way of browsing the forum.  Now, if you could put the new index on here and still keep the entire forum on the index page, it would be an enhancement. ;)

I agree with Dan.

I have half a dozen boards on separate tabs. When I want to sign onto the forum I just hit the "Open All in Tabs" selection, so I normally bypass the Index page. The only time I use the index is when I want to get to another board.

For the way I work, having the quick links across the top of every page would be useful. Having them just on the Index page wouldn't help much.
