    I've just noticed them at top right of a topic, and wonder what they do...

    They are : Outline · Standard · Linear+

    Standard is the default one, Outline is a "tree view"-like view, where you only see parts of a thread at once, and Linear+ was just the same as Standard, except it had a separator after the first post... What did I miss? [​IMG]

    BUMP! [​IMG]

    ... 18 days and still now answer? Come on guys, someone HAS to know it.... [​IMG]

    EDIT : Well, it seems like it's ALMOST like the Standard view, with the difference that each page has the topic's first post (not the first reply, really the first post [​IMG] ) as a header... Is there anything else different? [​IMG]

    At least, it might make some people realize that there are a few ways to view the same topic, and hopefully people will try to find which one suits them best... [​IMG]

    I tend to like the default view, but the Outline view is cool too, since you see what happenned in the thread, replies-wise. Linear+ is my next choice after Standard, though, but I won't use it since often the thread's subject change as replies get posted... [​IMG]
