Seems like this will get pushed to 3.2.
In an effort to move the discussion away from GitHub and into A51, I'll copy some of the discussion:
VSE wrote:If these are the View Unanswered posts, New Posts, Unread Posts, Active Topics links that appear at the top of the board index only, I think they should be left as is.
These are incredibly commonly used links by users when they return to a forum, and should not be hidden away and no longer one-click actions.
PayBas wrote:One of the main reasons for this was in fact to hide them. They clutter the layout quite a lot and even get a separate drop-down menu in responsive mode (so they are hidden anyway). This puts them into yet another nondescript dropdown with only the default (3 stripes) menu icon.
They are search functions, and should logically be close to the other search functions.
Better yet: by including them in the search-tools, these links are accessible from almost every page, instead of only the index
VSE wrote:That's all fine, I'm just saying that on the board index page only, I'd prefer it to remain as it has always been (there never was a search field there anyways). They are search functions, yes, but on the board index page, they are quick-access links.
