    IMO, overall, the upgrades are positive - Thanks BD crew!

    But I don't like what has happened to classified ads though. It's more like Craigslist used to be - you lost the interactions with follow up questions. Old format was more compelling/interesting to read, and made it more fun to buy/sell stuff. I suppose the newer format is better for Boats for Sale, but can you turn the comments/questions back on for all the smaller stuff?

    Everything looks good IMHO. For the classifieds, perhaps you can change the layout of the page to a "table" format so that there are way more ads displayed per page (multiple rows of ads). This way, we won't have to scroll through multiple pages to get to an ad that is only a few days old..

    that one had me messed up too

    new post= new thread

    latest post= new post

    I dont even think that is right.

    Meaning, New Post is not New Thread.

    Maybe Latest is Likes or Votes?

    Were is the Manual. THis is like an MFD manual....only part of the info is in the YOU MUST READ THIS.

    I just got an achievement award for posting a video report. WTH? I've never posted a video on this site in any board. Photos, yeah, but none of those lately either.

    Ping @Jason
    Is there a way to change how the NEW POSTS button at the top of the Forum List page sorts the 'new' posts?

    Many of the message boards I visit, New Posts sort them by the date/time of the last post, most recent at the top.

    I can't see any rhyme or reason to how BD sorts.

    They are set for newest first. Some of the threads you haven't seen yet are in order but have newer posts on them hence the times being newer than others.

    Many of these things I have tickets to check out already in. Maybe in a month or so. Classifieds are priority to code up.

    Got it right from the Xenforo manual.

    NO worries. Just FYI. I think I can handle it for now.
