but how do the "next" and "previous" buttons on the top-right corner of each forum work? I haven't been able to figure out if previous takes you to the next thread one "lower" than the one you are currently on, or one "higher"; same with "next."
They seem almost random in behaviour. When I'm looking at the first thread in the list (top of the list, most recent activity) and I hit "next" it says there's no more threads. When I hit "previous", sometimes it goes to the next one lower, but usually it stays on the same one.
Any pointers?
Thanks.

Rob

Next is "next newest"
Previous is older than current.

If you are at the top and you hit "next", you will get the message you describe. If you post a reply, your message moves up to the top of the list and becomes the newest, so if you hit next, you will get the message you describe.
