By popular demand, I’ve added a “Prev in Thread” and “Next in Thread” button. It was actually requested some time ago, and I got it partially working then. The additional demand in the last couple days spurred me to complete the modification.
Now if you view a message in “Threaded” view, you will be able to navigate up and down through the thread by clicking the “Prev in Thread” and/or “Next in Thread” buttons.
The “Previous” and “Next” buttons still work, as before, to move to the next different thread and previous different thread.
This change is NOT supported in the forum software. For those with previous programming/sysadmin experience, this change was implemented as a “messy Perl hack”. For those of you without programming experience, that means that it may be unreliable and/or broken (but I hope not).
If things get really weird, you can always view the messages in “Flat mode” (as I did not modify that portion of the software).
But if you do notice any strange or broken behavior, please let me know ASAP!
