Would it be possible to put an additional "View New Posts" link in the thread footer? It would save a ton of scrolling if you didn't have to go back to the top of the page.

I just hard-coded a VNP link right below the charts. Still trying to figure out how to get it at the bottom of the page...

Nice work around. Took me a few seconds to find it.

Thanks!

Quick question. When I take a picture on my phone in "portrait" mode (it shows up in my pictures in portrait format just fine), then I upload an attachment to BS, which also shows up as portrait (right side up) when I view the thread on my phone............ Then when I pull up the same thread on my desktop, it flips the picture to landscape. Am I doing something wrong?

something like this:

That makes sense, I've left all the settings alone. Do you get the "view latest post"? I get the last page then need to scroll down to get the latest post.

Yep, that's how it appears on mine.

Great job on the makeover.
A thought...
Place the number of positives/negatives next to the name of the person posting.
Especially important to me in the buy/sell area.

Also...saw a post about a "back to top" button..I like that but
How about a button to the gold & silver quotes.

On Android the metal quotes/charts are buried near the bottom of each page.

Thanks for all you do.

They are there, unless you use a device with a small screen, then most of the extra profile information is hidden. I'll see if there is a decent way to display the feedback numbers in the condensed profile. I definitely need to work on showing timestamps in the condensed format, since they are important for KSAs.

A "Back to Top" button is a distinct possibility. A button to the quotes is problematic. Where would it go? It would only be useful on mobile screens, and then it would have to float on top of everything else, otherwise you'd have to scroll to the top or down to the bottom to get to the button anyway. Generally more people find floating buttons annoying than helpful.

Do you have a link to an example? I could see your phone saving all of your images in landscape mode and just rotating them to display them on your phone in portrait, not actually changing the orientation in the file. So it would appear to be in portrait when you go through the photos on your phone, but is actually in landscape when you upload it to the site. But I'm not sure how a photo, once uploaded to the site, could show up in portrait on one device and landscape on another. There's no mechanism (that I know of) within the site to rotate a photo like that.

Your desktop monitor is landscape...and doesn't have the auto-rotate feature found on most phones. Does your desktop photo program have an option to change the rotation?

I post from the phone using the picture I have taken with the phone in portrait mode (so it doesn't auto rotate). It shows up in portrait in my photo album as well as the BS post as long as I view it from my phone. I suppose that after I post, I could right click/save from desktop, use a photo editing software to flip it, save, edit original BS post by deleting the photo and uploading a new one........ seems like a lot of work and wouldn't work in KSAs

Here is an example from the most recent KSA

viewtopic.php?f=70&t=26231&p=492987&hilit=Ancient#p492987

On my desktop it shows in landscape. The picture was taken in portrait mode and shows up in portrait in both my album and in the BS thread when I look at it on my phone. Even when I flip the phone sideways, the text fills the screen but the attachment stays in portrait mode only filling about 75% of the width. Unfortunately I can't post a screenshot because BS requires JPEG files and screenshots on iPhones get saved as PNG.

There's something weird going on with those pictures. I viewed the auction thread on a desktop in Firefox, Chrome, and IE, through the full range of browser widths, as well as on two different browsers on one phone, and the images show up in landscape on all of those. However, on an iPhone, they show up in portrait, and if I right click and do "view image" in Firefox or Chrome on a desktop, then the image is shown in portrait. If I access the images that way in IE, they still show up in landscape. Remind me what phone you are using? I'll have to see what I can find. Something strange with those files.

PNG files are definitely allowed. Here's one now.
