    At one time, it was possible to click (somewhere) on a thread to pull up a list of who all has posted in that thread, and how many times they had posted. Is that still a thing, and if so, how can you check that?

    It is still possible with searching some person in thread who has written there and count their posts. But this works only if member hasn't posted more than you can see.

    IIRC you can just search for posts by x member in a specific thread, but that only works up to 300 posts.

    No, unfortunately, that went away when we moved to Xenforo. The closest you can get is doing a search for posts by a particular member in a thread, but the hold list tallying up everyone isn't a feature anymore.

    A shame, as it was something I used very often (and the way people have talked, it sounds like it was a feature many of us used) but I think Ian assumed nobody used it and that it wouldn't be missed.

    There is a free XenForo add-on which recreates that old vBulletin functionality. Maybe the Administrator will download and install it.

    Whenever you’re viewing a list of threads, click on the # of posts in the thread. You’ll see a list of the top posters.

    If viewing on your phone, turn the phone sideways to see the number of posts per thread.

    For me, the # of posts is just text, no link.

    The list should look like this:

    No, the link is not there for me either. Also no box at the front of a thread title. And that's the same under Firefox and under Chrome. I have Windows 7, 64 bit, and normally use Firefox.
