    Just a suggestion to add this feature to save time drilling into topics with non-descriptive subject lines.

    For an example of what I mean take a look at the boatus forums.

    Best regards

    Great idea, I was here to post the same suggestion. In most forums that seem to use this software, if you hover, you can read enough to determine if you want to click on it or not.

    It saves a lot of time for dialup users at home like myself who don't want to bother loading a couple megs worth of photos, etc. to find out the topic wasn't what I thought it would be.

    Thanks!

    Feature added. It shows the last post though, not the first. This is the only "hover mod" I could find.

    There must be a way to show the first post - other forums do. Showing the last post isn't really useful.

    Almost there! ...

    ... But I also vote for the first posting to appear - the last message never usually has the original context. Not theat we got off-topic a lot :)

    Just wanted to say that for about the last few days - when I hover over a topic - I don't get the last post either.

    I vote for the first post though - I REALLY miss that function!

    Man, I sure wish the first post would appear in the hover-over tooltip thing too. When I do hover, what appears just doesn't usually seem to make sense to the topic. So it really is a useless feature displaying the last one. I still always have to go in and peek if I want to read the rest or not. And that's terribly time consuming for us dialup users... :huh:

    Absolutely nothing appears for me at all with the mouse cursor hovering over the topic...............do I need to change a setting or something? :smt017

    Hey Dave it only seem to work when you are looking at the list of topic in a forum section.

    Not on the list if you use the "View posts since last visit" Would be nice if it worked on that list also. IMHO

    I have looked and looked and looked and I can't find a mod that will display the first post of a thread. I have seen it on other sites but they must not be running phpbb software. If anybody can show me the mod I'll gladly incorporate it.

    You know what would awesome - to have the ability to see the first post AND the last post.

    Right now there are some posts that have the ability to "see the last post" with a yellow icon at left of the title - it would be great if the "first post" hover was the beginning yellow icon and the "last post" hover was a yellow icon in another location near the title - that would be great!!

    And of course thanks for trying and I will take the first post hover if that is the only one you can do.

    Kathy
