I am still seeing the blue arrows (with firefox).
On second thoughts -- I still see the blue arrow for unread posts (only this thread). But there used to be fainter blue arrows on other topic that took me to the last post. And those are missing.

Odd
My biggest issue is that it's called 4.1
I like even numbers.
If you could update to 4.2 and redeploy that would be great, thanks.
Also - still making updates to this? Awesome! Go, go, go!!!

If you could update to 4.2 and redeploy that would be great, thanks.
Retired software engineer (2018) who was schooled on IBM S/370 and then worked with Data General and then VAX-11 minicomputers until 1987, at which point I used PCs for the rest of my career. MS-DOS, then Windows 3.1, then Win95 and so on.
The point of that is that I experienced a lot of the MS-DOS/Windows culture, including exploding chicken heads* (which almost all programmers of a certain age will remember).
 
The common wisdom was that you should never buy Version 1 of any software, but rather you should wait until at least Version 2. The reasoning was that the initial release of any software product would be filled with bugs because it had to be rushed to market with insufficient testing. So basically it's their customer base who has to be the gorillas ferreting out those bugs. You do not want to be that gorilla!
I remember when Microsoft released a brand-new product to its Office suite and we all noticed that instead of labeling it honestly as V1.0, it was released as the same version number as Word, Excel, etc which had already paid their dues. I'm pretty sure that that was Outlook which was released in 1997 as "Version 8.0".
 
 

 
* FOOTNOTE:
Exploding Chicken Heads
The following is from the documentation on the sound() function in Borland C++ 3.1 Help (1992):
quote:
/* Emits a 7-Hz tone for 10 seconds.

True story: 7 Hz is the resonant frequency of a chicken's skull cavity. This was
determined empirically in Australia, where a new factory generating 7-Hz tones
was located too close to a chicken ranch: When the factory started up, all the chickens died.

Your PC may not be able to emit a 7-Hz tone.
*/

 #include 

 int main(void)
 {
    sound(7);
    delay(10000);
    nosound();
    return 0;
 }

This is a reply to Theodoric, replying to Message 8.
Older messages still have links to the right. But maybe there's a problem for new replies. Posting this as a test.
ABE: For this message as originally prepared, clicking of "Preview" did show what I was replying to. But the actual posted message did not show it. And preview of this edit does not show it. So it looks as if that information was lost.

Edited by nwr, : editing to comment on the result.

Why are strings like "so-and-so has not yet replied" changed to things like "so-and-so has taken no action"?

Problem With Interplay Between the Noparse and Table Codes
Trying to place table codes between noparse codes can experience problems. For example, this text in the message text box:
[np][table], [row], [col][/np]
Produces this once rendered in a message:
[table]
The commas and spaces have gone missing.

My email notification of a reply does not include a snapshot of the reply, like it did. No info at all.
