Am I right in thinking that there was a Board Index button before that has now disappeared? I'd be happy if it was only Active Topics and Bookmarks buttons that remained, the Your posts button is a misnomer anyway as it doesn't take me to my posts, only to topics on which I've made a post.

No, there never was a board index button, but clicking anywhere on the header image takes you to the board index.

I agree that the My Posts button is a misnomer, but that is outside of the scope of this discussion.
The NewPosts button also does not do what most people think it does.

Thanks Mike. And the paperclip icon I mentioned on the other post?

The paperclip icon indicates an attachment has been made to a post.

I decided to get rid of the % ratings on posts and topics, and discovered that switching that off also gets rid of the new button, so with a little tweaking of button width, everything seems to be fitting again.

An interesting exercise anyway....

What does it do then?
