First Post Preview in ForumDisplay

    There is a cool little feature that lets you preview the first post of a thread with out refreshing your web browers. There is now a row of [+] boxes to the left of thread title in forum view. Click one and you'll see the first post shown. Click again and it disappears.

    I did this at the expense of thread emotes, you'll also find the thread emotes aren't an option under the message box anymore when starting a new thread. Not maybe ppl used the feature anyway, shouldn't be a big loss.

    This is especially useful for Firefox users for whom the tooltip is truncated. Of course, it may not be as fast as a tooltip, but it's certainly better in other ways.

    Cool feature! Is it possible to add it to the Nexus skin as well?

    I was wondering why the prime doesn't have a 'contact us' at the bottom? and if it was working on the nexus view??
