On another note, I'm liking the notifications when someone replies to a post. (y)

Also, when going to a thread by clicking on the right most link:

It doesn't seem to take you "all" the way to the bottom of the page. The last message isn't the focus, but the one just before it. Maybe it's centering the post on the screen instead of at the top

It's working for me. Can you try it again? We both posted at the same time, which wrapped around to page 2 and am wondering if you clicked it after I posted but before you refreshed? Lol

Nah, it has to be a long comment thread. Perhaps check after this one has gotten long again on Page 2 :p

Side note: For the Marketplace, could we have 2, or 3, sub-Categories. Separate the Selling and Buying into their own section. And maybe the 3rd one would be Searching/Looking or something to that effect. Or maybe Bargain, Trade, etc. If not, then just 2 would be fine ;)

Ok, as far as the jumping thing, I think it has something to do with images, maybe. It jumps to the location, then the images load after the page "stops moving", and that forces the rest of the page further down. I tried on other threads and haven't had it repeat the issue.
Perhaps adding placeholders might help? though I'm not sure you can do that on the server end.

Another thought, under the threads it shows User Created and User Poster.

Can we have these names Bolded so that they stand out a little more? Maybe even font size bigger perhaps.

I know I know, I'm getting picky now 😜

Ok, a new oddity, but maybe it's just on my end. I was checking out: https://secondlifestorage.com/index.php?threads/edds-43kwh-nz-power-wall.8903/latest
As I was scrolling up, and I guess the images were loading, the page kept jumping me back down. Never saw this effect before ⁉️⁉️

That one sounds like a slow internets connection ;) As soon as I clicked in, the images loaded all at once. Jumping makes sense as it wouldn't know the dimensions of the image until it loads.

I'm on 500Mbps with about 20ms latency. I don't think it's internet speed :p

Could be a browser thing with the new html code/flags. I dunno. Don't normally scroll back up. Though this is the only site that I've 'noticed' it on.

Does Xenforo have the option/ability to have themes? I actually do prefer a dark(er) theme than mostly white. I looked through account preferences, but did not see it anywhere. Perhaps a module needs to be installed/activated(?)

Yes, multiple themes can be installed. We can visit this later once the remaining cleanup items are finished :)

This white is an eye-killer.
Seriously, either allow a dark interface or change the background color to something else.
In this state I can't stay with the pages open too much.

Mikes working on it. You could use a plugin called DarkReader temporarily if you'd like. It does a fairly decent job of dark theming sites. Even if it's not a permanent thing, it could help in the interim

Borders color (E0E0E0 probably) is fine (in the old version, topic titles used to have that type of color also.) but the text-box are is a big problem.
Thanks for all the effort.
I am aware that doing such a software upgrade is not an easy job as many may assume.

Text-content should be either very dark grey (202020) or pure black.
For the background there could be many variation, but anything is better than white.

Feel free to test some values with something like this:

I'm not seeing an option to jump straight from a thread title in the list to the first unread post in the thread. On the old site there was a blob just to the left of a title, which if clicked, would take you straight there. I see there is a "Jump to New" button once your in the thread, but that requires a second click. Far too much effort.. 😜
