Howdy friends!

I think it would be interesting to have a link to newer and older topics like in Hotmail and Gmail.
If I'm reading a topic and I want to go to the newer one, I need to go back to the forum's page and click the topic.
Could you understand what I mean?

I know, probably few people will use this functionality. Well, but just a little arrow to left and right in the upper right corner of the page would be cool. xD

Cheers!

We used to have that on the old software. I don't know whether it is available on the new software, but I think it would be a useful feature.

It would indeed be nice, but it's rather incompatible with the way the thread data is currently stored. We've talked about this in the past, but we're concerned that it could conceivably add two fairly expensive database queries to each page view. It's definitely something we'll look at again at some point, though.
