Can we have it so that when you hover over a topic, a small box appears that has the op post in it?

It's a nice way to preview a post when I want to catch up on everything but cant read everyone's topics.

Thanks for reading.

In the meantime, if you click "view unread posts", it'll only show what topics you ain't read yet...

Hey Orbie,

Sorry for the delay.  This is done.  It has a bunch of settings to control how this works.  One of them is how long you have to hover before it shows you a preview.  See what you think.  I don't want it to pop up if someone is just scrolling through the page.  But I want it to come up fast enough that you don't have to wait.  It might need some tweaking.

Hmmm.  Hit your f5 key (same as refresh).  It only shows up with in a board when you hover the mouse over a topic for a second or two:

Well this isn't an uncommon statement for IT guys or auto repairmen.  But it works for me..... :))  In IE too.

I'll check it out next time I'm over there.

orbie, let us know what you see.

No problem Snerdly - likely something in my setup.  But, figure that once you see and figure it out, it'll come in handy for the next guy as lousy w/computers as I am! O:wc
