    You may wish to send this along to them (or it appears to me to be an easy tweak to the PHP if you just want to fix it).

    In vBulletin, when you click on a user's name (like on the left side of a thread), one of the options you get is to "view forum posts" for that user. Xenforo doesn't have that, but you can click once to the user's profile page and then select the "recent activity" tab. However, this doesn't work if the user has blocked people from seeing his profile.

    Of course, the workaround is just to go to search and look for posts by the user, but it's clunky to have to retype the username in that field.

    Not a big deal, but you can pass it along.

    When did the site switch over to this new software?

    One new feature I hate...

    The location listed in the user's info next to their post is a hyperlink that will launch google maps. I occasionally accidentally hit it on while surfing on my iPad because I use my left thumb to scroll.

    IMO it's a useless feature that's just a PITA when accidentally activated.

    Can't you get what you're looking for by clicking the users Picture and clicking on the number next to messages on yours below (11,292)?

    One thing I've noticed if you hover over a thread title and it is near the top of the page the pop up window runs off the top and you can't read it.
