    in a word - "Golden"
    Sure it just saves me the time of manually adding the page to my avantgo browser but I appreciate it.
    Once again well done Parker [​IMG]

    This Palm icon that just appeared is very distracting. Makes it hard to ignore to read thread title. Is there a way to disable it?

    I agree Roger...very distracting. Maybe it can be made smaller and moved to a more inconspicuous place.
    Edit: Oops, see. There's the stupid message icon that I didn't bother to check before submitting!

    Thanks for the kudos on this. It is all Jay's and Vince's idea. I am just trying to implement it.

    Unfortunately, Avantgo doesn't allow any single page over 32k in size- so for the time being (until I can think up a way to make it work), it can only be used for threads under 3 pages or so.
    But, it's a neat feature.
    I'm not sure what people are saying about the Palm logo-
    In the page view it's tiny and next to the other logos (print/flag a mod/etc)-- I would say 99% f the people don't even notice, let alone find it distracting.
    In the thread index it's currently just small green dot- I'd prefer a Palm Pilot logo myself- but I'm fine with the dot (as long as it's there!)

    PS: If you are an avantgo user and would like to be able to add larger than 32k discussions to your palm- email them! Email customer support and ask them to create a feature that automatically breaks up pages over 32k in size you add you to your custom channels. This would be a feature they could write in 10 minutes, if enough people wanted it.
    No need to mention the HTF or anything- just tell them when you add custom channels with pages larger than 32k it doesn't work, and that it would be more useful to you if they could write a feature which would break the pages over 32k into multiple 32k sections automatically!

    New size and location of the button is big improvment from the original and no longer a distraction. I hope to try this neat new feature soon.
