Proposal for layout improvements (1 Viewer)

I have no idea if this is possible, but here is a proposal. It started with me accidentally hitting the wrong button when wanting to mark a specific section of birdforum read. To avoid doing something similar again I am proposing the two changes that are shown in the image. The image is from the Taxonomy forum with two subforums (should really be subfora, but I am not sure I would be understood if using that form). It would be even worse if we are talking about something like the camera section with about 10 subsections.

One additional thing: the "Post thread" button should be below the subforums because it is down there you actually post if you click the button.

Sounds sensible!

What would be even better, is to go back to how it used to be, please! Double-click on the orange bird-and-sun logo to mark a forum read; the logo would turn pale on double-clicking. Much more convenient than the new system of marking threads / forums read. Same now would be to double-click on the leaf logo, to turn it from orange to grey.

And working now! Many thanks, much appreciated! 😻

Superb, just what I wanted and 'as was', much more convenient although, I had started using the function which shows all threads as read which is almost as good.

Give all this a bit of time, we'll get used to it, and one day in the future, we'll be reminiscing, calling this "the way it used to be."
