Would like to see avatars be shown in more places, such as New/Unread Posts so we can see who created a post, who replied, etc.

Do you have an example? Another forum that does this perhaps?

Do you know of a specific phpBB Extension that does this? The only thing I've found is a 'Recent Topics' extension.

I don't know of a currently maintained extension for this.

Up in "Quick Links" I found "New Posts" is that like new posts since my last visit?

Thanks,

Sarge, "New Posts" are posts that have been made recently, whether you have read them or not. I don't know the time span which qualifies them as "recent" and I'm not sure if your last visit has anything to do with the list . "Unread Posts" is a listing of posts that you haven't read regardless of their age. I'll look into the documentation to see if there's clarification on all this.

Morgan, Is this something you could code up? I like the idea but I don't have the time to invest into right now.

I'll install a copy of phpBB and see if I can get something working.
