Default Feedback on revamped P2P forum

Hi,

Should appreciate all your works in revamping the site and giving a good look to it now. Good Work!

Though it took sometime to get adjusted to the new UI, I would like to point that when on Reply mode under any topic, one cannot use the links above to navigate to the other levels (FORUM/Category) instead have to come to p2p home and go one by one from the beginning to reach one leve previous to that page. As in REPLY mode the FORUM_ID= and CAT_ID= are not holding values in the querystrings unlike the normal mode of the topic. Should that be passed there too?

Eg: Browse this URL http://p2p.wrox.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=15230
Where one can use the links on top(marked in red) to navigate to the other levels
P2P Forum > Database > SQL Server > SQL REporting Services

But the same doesn't happen with the reply mode of that http://p2p.wrox.com/post.asp?method=...230&FORUM_ID=8
P2P Forum > Database > SQL Server > Reply
Mouseover on SQL Server shows FORUM_ID doesn't carry any value there, same way CAT_ID for DATABASE link there.

Hope one should be allowed to navigate to other levels from the reply mode too.

Cheers!

One more thing missing. The Topic Name to be displayed on the REPLY page too. Sometimes I feel like knowing context of the mail/post by seeing its topic. And the Reply page doesn't show that now. Earlier version of the UI was showing it on both modes. Does that makes sense?

Cheers!
