    As you know we had a database wipe out and we started over with vB 3 RC2. This version has new viewing modes for looking at topics. Here's a guide to them:
    could a mod please pin this if it's good enough?

    Linear: Usual way of thread viewing that you are used to.

    Threaded: Shows a list of "reply chains" as I call them and "replys" to them. To reply to an exact post you hit the reply button in the corner of it. To start a new reply chain you hit the post reply button.

    If you don't select a post with the quick reply button (The little paper), quick reply will reply to the current reply chain.
    This mode only shows 1 post at a time.

    Hybrid:
    Like threaded but if the top of a reply chain is selected, All the posts in it get shown. If a reply to one is selected, All the replys in the chain under it are shown.

    See? It's that easy to use vB 3's thread viewing modes. I'm gonna start a poll asking which one you use.

    Well some users might not even know about them and overlook them
    Also I made a mistake:
    When you select a reply in a reply chain in Hybrid mode, It shows only that reply, not all the replys under it as well.

    Well, to be completely honest. The very fact that I have disabled the need for a user to quick on one of the quick reply buttons [​IMG] it will completely cock up hybrid and threaded mode so I will be removing them as soon as I figure out how.

    No mate, seriously threaded views will be totally screwed. They have to go.
    Unless you want to click on the little quick reply next to the post ?

    Linear is the default and I can't see many people using the others.

    Linear = Win
    Everything Else = lose :p

    As good as your intentions are Viper Snake, there's really no need for a thread like this.

    The new viewing options are one of the best things in vB 3 other than the new theme.
