Last post has the format "by XTF #\nThu Apr 30, 2015 6:43 pm"
Where does one want to go if one clicks here? To the last post..
However, the # target is tiny while the user target is much larger, which doesn't make any sense.

IMO the entire cell should be a link to the last post.

Using X days/weeks/years ago instead of the real date might be simpler too.

The subject title on the front page is a link to the last post, besides the icon.
The date format depends on your own settings, you can change it in your UCP.

What does one enter to always have XX xx ago?
And what does the | do in the format string? Can't find it at http://php.net/manual/en/function.date.php

That's good but it doesn't fix the last post link.

I thought that it was a link to the first unread post, not the last post.
