Okay, made some changes when you view topics:

You can only see user's signature when you are logged in. Also, their profile link/pm/email/, etc. links at the end of their reply only visible when you log in.

LAST post column now has DATE linked to the latest post instead of a icon.

Forum and topic titles appear in your browser's window/title.

Enjoy!

Gallery:

Here is an easy way to display THUMBs using the BBCODE already generated by the gallery software and is listed under picture INFO icon:

the gallery gives you this bbcode so that you can display picture on a forum:

Code:
bbCode: [url=http://www.defencetalk.com//pictures/displayimage.php?pos=-1718][img]http://www.defencetalk.com/pictures/albums/userpics/JF-17big.jpg[/img][/url]


Now, that links to BIG picture, which makes the scroll bar at the bottom to overcome that and to display just a thumbnail of the picture while still linking into the bigger pic use this method:

Using the code already generated, just add " thumb_ " in front of the picture name so for example:

Code:
bbCode: [url=http://www.defencetalk.com//pictures/displayimage.php?pos=-1718][img]http://www.defencetalk.com/pictures/albums/userpics/THUMB_JF-17big.jpg[/img][/url]
This would display thumbnail without taking the thread out of format.

This would display thumbnail without taking the thread out of format.

Now this is done automatically when you view picture INFO in the gallery. You will see "bbcode thumbnail" which you can post in any forum which has bbcodes enabled.

NO MORE SCROLL BARS!!!!

If you post a picture which is larger than your screen, it will be resized and link will be added so user can click and view the full sized image in new window. This is a nice user friendly feature.

Thanks to Dr Mustak anis for this great trick.
