Just a little something that I am trying out

sometimes in a long thread it is useful to have the original post available on each page to keep things on track /

Still working a bit awkwardly though. Seen a few threads where its fouling the spacing and bumped the last coupla posts on page (n-1) onto page (n) just above the most recent posts. May be easier to put just the text, in a slightly differently formatted box, at the top. Could cut the Avy and Siggy, just name, date, message text. I might also suggest keeping it to a couple of lines with a "More...." hot button for longer originating posts.

If it stays (and it does seem like a good idea) it might be a good idea to design new threads with an intro first post and then any extra pictures etc in a second post. The top bar bee hive post is an example of one that is straining under the new system, but if he had know before hand WT would have done it different.

Is it possible to post a "header" post before the posts already created?

Agreed

I think that the goto guys (and Gals) can take it on themselves to do that no and then on long threads
