    We added a "view new posts" button to the forum menu. Several of you have requested this so hopefully it will be a little more easier.

    Yaaay! And there's no fine line of a hot spot below the buttons anymore to screw me up.

    Thanks Phil and Jamie :)

    Keep in mind that this is not the final design, although it will have the same features. The visual design will be quite different.

    BTW - Knew you'd notice the pixel hot spot discrepancy has been fixed. The buttons highlight on rollover, but I can clearly see why that issue would come up sometimes. The current changes are still a quick fix. We want this menu to look just right.

    It has been for me, anyway...

    It has always been there, just in another spot. And its still in that spot. I always used it too

    The main page offers the old link and the one provided in the Flash menu, but now all pages have the "view new posts" feature. That's what was missing before.

    It is the forum software maker's assumption that "view new posts" should only be on the main page. The Muppet Central staff decided to offer this feature on every page after noticing that many members (myself included) continually use our browser's "back" button. That is simply bad design. A user could have clicked the forum option to bring them back to the main page, and then select the button, but that's an extra needless step.

    We intended to include the option in the new design, but we received enough complaints to warrant a quick fix until the new menu debuts later this year.

    We are glad the "view new posts" button is helpful.

    Yeah, I'm surprised some people never noticed that it was only previously on the main forum page only.

    It's so much nicer to have the link accessible from anywhere in the forum rather than having to click the back button a zillion times to find the "View New Posts" link again.

    You only had to click the forum button once to get to main page with that option, so it didn't require a zillion clicks, but most people seemed to be doing it the other way (including me). But two clicks for one action is too many.

    Okay, so my click count was off, but I still like the new button.

    Actually, using Opera I use to use mouse gestures and swipe the right mouse button up and to the left to go one directory up from where I was to get to the main forum page... which is equivalent to your clicking once on the "Muppet Central Forum" link I guess, just a little more lazily :p

    Ahhhhhh, yes---I see it at the top of each page now. :) I was just used to usin' it every time from the forum main page. ;)

    Yeah - you know - it was always there, but lil Mokey took it one day! ;)

    I hadn't thought about saving a click by having it on the top of every page. I guess it just wasn't a big deal to me to have to click twice. DSL modems are nice that way!

    Don't worry By. I'm sure this will get old soon and we'll find something else to make fun of.

    Good thing that button. I always use to go to new posts, and since I am kinda lazy...:)
