Hi there Jason,

if  you get a spare moment in the not too distant future,
would it possible for you to increase the font size of
quotes to at least 1em?

Quote
I am unable to read a font-size: x-small quote,
UNLESS IT IS CAPITALISED !

done. I think I need to go through and rip out every "smaller" font size. Seems like a waste of time though since again this entire template goes in the trash sooner or later.

I also lightened the background to aid in legibility.

Could you please make it a priority to have the page "scroll" to the most recent post. It is quite monotonous to have to scroll down on every page.
To save time, let's just assume I am never wrong.

that one's annoying to track down because if you go to a thread that should have a 'new' item, the href has #new in it. The hash is there... if you view source, a <a name="new"> or <a id="new"> is present in the page...

So why isn't it scrolling? Again I suspect one of their scripts is at fault, but damned if I know which one. I might just disable ALL JavaScripts except for the editor as a stopgap to see if that 'fixes' the problem.

I've done something... stupid to fix it for now. Since I suspect their JavaScript is screwing it up, but I can't find what would be preventing it... I've thrown scripting at it to detect a hash, see if the matching ID exists, and scroll to it.

Since scripting disabled the new posts work... Another stopgap until I can get knee-deep in the total skin rewrite.

STILL not working... no, it couldn't be... does display:flex somehow magically disable hash links in this usage case? The numbers returned by my top calculation, rect + scroll, etc, are total BS. Or is flex not returning its height/size properly?

Alright, I MAY have gotten the hash problem fixed my just moving where the ID's are attached and ditching the 1990's style anchor use. No guarantees though.

I had thought flex might be at fault, but no joy.

Ok, the scrolling to new / message numbers issue, I've no clue what was blocking it, but changing from the outdated <a name=""> to id="", and moving them to elements deeper in the nest fixed it.

Though "new" now points at the poster column and not the wrapper. Close enough.

Hmm... just thought of it, I wonder if it's something stupid like all the outermost class="windowbg" div not clearing a float. Elements lacking content like the stupid named anchors would "ride up" with them since they have "no size"...

AGAIN why like every other off the shelf answer, the template needs to go in the trash.
