XF 1.4 Moving "thread display options" to the top

I feel like having "thread display options" at the top of the thread list is better than at the bottom (ignored and forgotten). Is there an easy way to move it to the top? @Russ

I did manage to do it as an experiment but it took a bit of fiddling.

I didn't make a note of the edits so you would just have to start hacking the template and CSS.

Great, I'll try to do that, if there are any lucky I'll share the solution in this thread.
I hope so, anyway if someone else want to give a hand would be really appreciated :coffee:

It's not perfect, but it's a start... may be a question of tweaking values a bit...

Style Properties: Discussion List

Find:
OPTION PANEL FORM
Change this:
line-height: 20px;
overflow: hidden;
zoom: 1;

To this:

line-height: 20px;
overflow: hidden;
zoom: 1;
position: absolute;
top: 20px;

Find:
OPTION PANEL HANDLE

Change this:
position: absolute;
bottom: -17px;
line-height: 16px;
text-align: center;
right: 50%;
white-space: nowrap;

To this:

position: absolute;
top: 0px;
line-height: 16px;
text-align: center;
right: 50%;
white-space: nowrap;

This opens the 'displays threads' form right above the handle.

OPTION PANEL FORM:

line-height: 20px;
overflow: hidden;
zoom: 1;
position: absolute;
top: -50px;

I also styled 'Options Panel Handle Link' to draw attention to it...
