IIRC, That affects all dates. I think the posting time is valuable (for current posts). I wouldn't want to remove that.

I made the PM section atleast readable. I plan to work on the control panel look and colors more later.

I see. Didn't notice that at first. Hmm, I am not sure if I can modify it for just the post profile though. Should I just remove that from the post profile altogether?

I have deleted all the language packs other than English and German. This should correct any weird issues people may have had. If you want any other languages added, make a request and it will be considered in next update of the site.

Is it possible to add a few links to the view we see when looking at a single thread? The links for viewing 'active topics' and 'new posts' appear when browsing the Board Index, but in the new layout they no longer appear when looking at a single thread, or when responding to a post. How easy is that to change?

The whole thing looks great by the way, and works wonderfully. Congrats and thanks for getting it all done so well, and so quickly!

Yeah, those are both links I used all the time as well, so high on my list of things to add. It is not super easy to change, but I should be able to. Awhile back when working on one of the old demos I did for the site, I had added them next to "View your posts". That made that line kinda crowded though, so this time, I'll see how they look right above the breadcrumbs (Portal>Board Index>) if I can put them there. That will move the main body of the forums down further though which I'd prefer to avoid, but that is where they were in the old subsilver2 based style.

I might try sticking them on the Breadcrumb line itself to the right, right above FAQ, Members, Logout and to the left of the Font Size Changer. Does anyone even use the Font Size Changer? Might just remove that while I'm at it if I stick them there.

I went ahead and moved those two next to View your posts. I left the View Unanswered and View Unread ones just on the Board Index as I don't think they are used as much and when people want them, they can access them there.
