    is it possible to get a balloon tip with the last post in the "last page" button?

    or will this slow the board down?

    if so, nevermind

    yeah would be nice, but people also use it to see briefly what the thread is about from the first post.

    If its ok mate, I will leave this one until vb goes final as it looks like it might involve a little bit of file editing, I see what you mean now tho ;)

    it also might slow the speed of the board down, so before you do this, make sure it doesn't slow the board down

    In the same spirit, would it be possible to have an option in 'user cp' to disable these balloon tips in the forums ? I have to say that it kind of disturbs me those balloon tips poping up at a very (too ?) fast pace when I hover over the threads... but it may be my opinion only...

    Well that's your browser (the speed of it, that is.) however, I agree that the option to turn them off should be one that's available. Perhaps a suggestion on the vB boards would help? :)

    he means if you use a different browser they might take longer to popup

    Yup, the speed that they appear can't be controlled. That's coded into your browser. :)

    I will check later to see if there are any custom hacks to disable the balloon tips.

    Yeah, sorry what I did mean was, a hack that would involve giving the user the choice :)
