    I do think it's funny that all these changes you're rolling into the plugin are getting rolled into the skin too. :lol3

    Downloaded and seems to work fine. Maybe slows the site a little? Anyway, had to get post times/date to the top. That was driving me crazy. Thanks.

    How do you reply to a conversation? For the life of me I can't find a button to reply to a PM/Convo. Thanks!!

    Hey Pilot, I've got an idea. Yeah, I know...... How about a site announcement directing everyone to Mossy_Crk's FAQ's? It may help with repetitive questions. Just a thought.

    Hey James, nice job. Maybe a better thing for the masses and you would be to give you some permissions to use the Xenforo admin tools to tweak the actual styles, rather than having to make a plug-in that only some people would install.

    That way you'd probably have more latitude to do improvements, more inmates would benefit, and my changes wouldn't break your plugin. Besides, it would save me a butload of time because the inmates are pounding on the tables to get changes made.

    Are you interested? Trustworthy so you don't hackz0r our systems?

    I vouch for him, unless that's a bad thing. In that case I don't vouch for him.

    And I can vouch for Dysco, so is this now a circle something or other?

    It seems like there are different levels of ignorance. Plus, you need a way to un-ignore them. :lol3

    It's set to 20 and unfortunately you can't change it. :(

    I miss my 100 posts per page too. :patch

    I'll pop in with a request. In Revo, is it possible to reverse the orange and blue for read/unread threads? Blue stands out so much more, I still confuse the two almost two weeks later. (Just to note, not asking to change the color of sub-forum titles. The orange looks very nice there.)

    And secondarily, also reverse the page number colors in Revo. Make the current one blue (stronger=equals current) and the other ones white?

    Either way, thanks for your work.

    Quick request. Baldy moved the time stamp to the top of the post, which is awesome. But now the username is there also, which is clutter in the way of the information you want, which is the time stamp. Any way to leave the time stamp where it is but remove the redundant username?

    Keep the suggestions coming! I'll be modifying the forum styles directly now so no extension or add-on will be necessary.

    Thanks for the efforts @James Adams. While still a bit foreign, the site is getting better with most every tweak. I'm actually posting from Safari again instead of tapatalk on the iPhone.
