    Longtime vb3 user... considering a move to XF

    Longtime vb3 user... considering a move to XF

    Hi, I'm running vb 3.8.11 and thinking to get XF. Some questions: If I look at a topic here I have to move my mouse onto thread title to see the first 150(or whatever number) of characters of the post. My existing vb3 forum has the first 150 characters of the post underneath the title so the...
