I would appreciate your input on this. Being new to theme-making, I'm still learning and will be for awhile.
Originally the posts in left column were all black -- reads and unreads. How to tell if post has been read is by the very minute dot to the left of the post. The star, to the left of the post in left pane indicates a new post has been made in the forum.
I have changed them to a red color to indicate those that have been read. I could probably choose a coordinating coor, but why - red is more easily seen.
Are you in favor of this setup -- or do you prefer all black and using the dot/star method?
Black color text means "to read."
Red color text means "have read."
