Looks fine to me. As I said, I'm still not sold that we need this, but since it does seem to fit in with the style I wouldn't be against having it, I suppose. EDIT: Although please don't remove the post icon that you took out in the concept. That is there to indicate read/unread.

I'd say assign a template variable with the ID so style authors can easily add it if they want to display that.
I'm not to keen on adding it in the default styles though.

We could always add another ACP setting? :mrgreen: :ugeek: Just kidding.

I like this. It took me a long time to realize that the page icon is a link to the post. With this change we convert it to something a lot more noticeable, meaningful, while keeping roughly the same amount of space and get rid of an image to boot.

The point of the icon is to indicate read/unread. IMO, removing that is not the right answer. *shrug*

EDIT: That is, unless you want to make another indicator, i.e. bold post number = unread, unbold = read?
