Ah, Carsten, I like it . . . you're a man after my own heart!. I had a play around with similar ideas yesterday, and went even further and looked at a moved button. I scrapped the idea at the time because I ran out of time before going to the footy. I'll post it here incase it inspires an idea for others.

Yep - it's done by adding to the stylesheet:

Code
Select All
.movedbg {
	background-color: #FFFEDF;
	font-size: 12px;
	font-weight: normal;
	font-style: italic;
	font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;
	color: #304B58;
} 



and in MessageIndex.template change this:
Code
Select All
$threadbarMoved = qq~
<tr>
<td class="windowbg2" valign="middle" align="center" width="6%"><yabb threadpic></td>
<td class="windowbg2" valign="middle" align="center" width="4%"><yabb icon></td>
<td class="windowbg" valign="middle"  align="left" width="48%" colspan="4">
<div style="float: left; width: 95%;"><yabb favorite> <yabb new> <yabb poll><i><yabb subjectlink></i></td>
<td class="windowbg2" valign="middle" align="left" width="27%">
<span class="small">
<yabb lastpostlink><br />
<b>$messageindex_txt{'525'}:</b> <yabb lastposter></span></td>
<yabb admin column>
</tr>
~; 


to this:
Code
Select All
$threadbarMoved = qq~
<tr>
<td class="windowbg2" valign="middle" align="center" width="6%"><yabb threadpic></td>
<td class="windowbg2" valign="middle" align="center" width="4%"><yabb icon></td>
<td class="movedbg" valign="middle"  align="left" width="48%">
<div style="float: left; width: 99%;"><yabb favorite> <yabb new> <yabb poll><yabb subjectlink></div>
</td>
<td class="windowbg2" valign="middle" align="center" width="14%"><span class="small"><yabb starter></span></td>
<td class="movedbg" valign="middle" align="center" width="4%">-</td>
<td class="movedbg" valign="middle" align="center" width="4%">-</td>
<td class="windowbg2" valign="middle" align="left" width="19%">
<span class="small">
<yabb lastpostlink><br />
<b>$messageindex_txt{'525'}:</b> <yabb lastposter></span></td>
<yabb admin column>
</tr>
~;

Moved topics in Message Index.

Quote:
new feature - updated display for 'moved' threads in Message Index.

with new MessageIndex.pl and MessageIndex.template files, any 'moved' threads now show spanned across subject, started by, replies and views cols, the 'moved' message is italised, no longer linked, and a sub-text added that takes you straight to the new thread, rather than a (imho) pointless post telling you its been moved.

Nice change - except for removing the topic starter and especially the 4 column spanning. From a layout point of view it's  messing up the page imho. I've attached a modest suggestion to make moved topics stand out without spoiling the layout.
