Greetings Smegstas!!!

It's been a long night programming in those wonderful languages of SQL and PHP.

The right hand list of latest topics on the main page is a great feature. But for ages I've wanted to see which topics I've fully read and those which have unread posts. And I'm sure many of you have too!!

It wasn't easy. It involved some nifty database programming and a few beers, but at last I've cracked it!!

The first version worked, but was too inefficient. Page took long to load, so after much optimisation I've managed to add this feature with only adding a massive 0.006 of a second to the page loading time. Woo Hoo! :thumb: :thumb:

Bit bollocks to the technical stuff, what it means is now the topics that have new posts you haven't read have a RED icon and those you've read have a grey icon. It can't get simpler than that!!!

The other new little feature in the front page topic list is that Announcements are now prefixed with a Φ character so it's easy to note when there are new forum announcements. This topic should be prefixed with one. It's the Greek letter Phi btw.

Oh well that wasn't so bad....

You now have 5 buttons on the bar below the right hand list of topics. Which means almost instant access to the newest 250 topics.
