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.
