Some message boards have this feature... where you let your mouse hover over the thread title and it gives you the first few lines of the actual first post.

How hard is that to do? Can we do it here?

I don't know, I would have to look and see if someone has posted a mod, if they have it should be fairly easy.

Not supposed to work when you use "View unread posts"?
Maybe he can . . .
It's not a big deal to me. I don't think I'd use it all that much, but that's just me.
The original script was not written for use on a search (unread is a search for new posts).

However, after all of ptsmith24's whining and begging I figured out how to adapt it for the search page. So now any search, including "View Unread Posts" will have the thread preview as well.

in making it work for the search page I figured out how to limit the amount of text shown. The default/current setting is 1000 characters. I think I might chop that in half.

So far its working great.

A word of warning for those browsing at an unfriendly or restricted environement...if the first post has a photo, it comes screaming up in all its glory...scared the crap out of me since I'm at work. I avoid the posts that have photo's in case someone walks by behind me.

Oh dear god is this the most annoying thing EVER!!! Is there anyway a user can turn it on or off as part of his profile????

I can't scroll over the forum without popups popping up all over the place. All it does is get in the way of my forum browsin. If I want to know what a thread is about, well isn't that what the "Subject:" field is for?

Which when I search unread posts and scroll down or try to click on a post (by clicking on the subject line), makes things really annoying. If I see a subject line that interests me, I already want to click on it. I don't want to see a preview. And if I accidentally scroll over the subject line, I have an annoying pop up. It reminds me of all those pop up ads that plagued the internet 6 years ago.

Is this when you first developed this fear of pop-ups? Or do you think perhaps it goes back to your first jack-in-the-box as a child and the evil looking clown that kept jumping out at you? :-k
