Mike,

Currently, when you hover the cursor over the Title Box of a thread, you get a preview of the first line or two of the thread.

Would it be possible to get a preview of the last post when you hover the cursor over the "Last Post" icon? Sometimes, in my old age, I forget if I have checked the last post in a thread, and if I have logged on to WF from a different computer, it doesn't always recognize what I have already viewed.

The fetch isnt set up that way to date, so it wouldnt be as simple as flipping a switch. Doesn't seem it would be too hard to code in though and provide a first post/last post switch in the control panel.

I can see it now - another query to the DB for a truncated post body string for every post in the listing - might add some overhead eh?

I sorta miss programming in PHP. :p>
