Post new thread button in different locations?

    I just noticed that the Post New Thread button at the top is displayed differently, if a forum has sub-forums. Is this intended? Compare these 2 links:
    Forum Location and Sub-Forum Location

    I think it would look better if the button is displayed into same location, in both cases (next to bread crumbs).

    I totally agree. But certainly not next to the breadcrumb. Moving it away from the breadcrumb already was an improvement, but it should always be in the same position:

    Aha, good point. Then, isn't better to have the Forum Location button match the Sub-Forum Location one?
    Just for uniformity reasons... Still, personally, I never liked the way sub-forums are displayed on a page:

    Look at the huge space the sub-forums take. Personally, I would a fairy noticeable button that show the list of sub-forums, when you hover over it. The perfect example is present into forum home. We see the forum and right under there is a nice Sub-Forum link that lists all sub-forums into a dropdown format.

    I'm going to open another suggestion thread for this.

    That's what I am saying :).

    My screenshot was a mock up. It doesn't quite correctly display how the subforums look in real life. Here is a correct example:

    Well, yeah... just look at the Soulcalibur IV Tactics example I linked to above... the list is huge and it results in the [Post New Thread] button completely out of reach (in the former position of that button). This awkward positioning only became apparent when the subforums were moved to the top actually. In XF the subforums were positioned at the bottom of the forum thread list in the first alpha/beta (?) versions and then the position of the button next to the breadcrumb was actually good (and innovative).

    is that photoshopped, or did you code your button like that on the right?
