I guess I'm getting old but I tend to forget and sometimes don't look at the op username. Some of these threads get to be several pages long and it can be a pain to go back to post #1.
I think I've noticed that the moderators are differentiated. No big deal, just a suggestion.
OBTW. I'm in Florida and it is 74
Moderators are a "class" of user; not a poster. "Vendors" are also a "class of user" and have a unique color as well.

I'm not complaining about "class of user" I was just saying it is possible. Just forget I suggested this and delete the thread. Thx...

NOOO! Don't give up now. You just got "their" attention. And besides, the hijack by B47 was just too easy to be unintentional! Ha!

If OK, we are going to let the thread stay, and look into what you are asking.

There is a blue box with an arrow pointing right as you view it. The box is to the right of your post as viewed.

If you click on the box,you will be returned to the post that you're replying to and if you're not replying,you will see the OP.

Perhaps a site administrator can further explain it,but it does work.
B, would you expand on that a bit further ?? I can't find the blue box with the arrow. I want to see how that works. Where in the thread do you see the blue box ??

If you know how to do it using the vBulletin software the Forum server runs I will be happy to listen. I am still learning how it all works and am embarrassed to admit I don't know how.


Just let me know in the Admin Panel what selections I should be using.
I am always willing to learn from an expert at this stuff.

I'll send you a PM.

Herk, I never said I was an expert but I can say I have written my share of code. I always say "Confidence is the feeling you have before you understand all the problems."

That being said, I know nothing about vBulletin but it seems to me there are a couple of fields to test when a reply to a post is made. Right now the code checks the user name to bump their number of posts. Also, every post gets a post number. The OP gets #1. It seems the code could test the username or set a flag to the OP username so that when that user posts a new response to the same thread then their name could be italicized for instance.

I also know messing with code can be problematic so it may not be worth messing with. Thx for your response..

OK, B47 and I have been PMn some, and he finally got it through my thick skull about the blue box.

In B47s quote in this post, there is a little box beside of his username. Click that, and it takes you back to where he posted that.

I don't think that is exactly what the OP was trying to suggest, but it could help with following a string of quoted posts.

B47, thanks for clueing me in......I had no idea what that blue box meant.

I didn't either - until I asked

Glad I could help in my little way.
