I haven't noticed what colour titles are before actually Just went back to have a look and on my screen, all the deals on the page are blue and they dont go red until you click on them to read them.

I don't think that's it. Most of mine are red and only some are blue. Several of the threads that are both red and blue are ones that i haven't ever opened.

If it's deals then its blue if it's cold and red if it's positive temp.

Some negative temped ones are red? All the titles I see are red, in fact.

The figure showing the temp shows red/blue according to heat, that seems to be true.

OK, the question with a little more clarity:

Lets say i see a thread on the deals page entitled "Buy one get one free on all DVDs at HMV" (
Either that clarifies what i mean or i just made it worse. I hope it's not the later.

I have seen blue titles ones in the past, remember we had a convo about it one time admin?

But I can't recall seeing them in a while.

Here's a screenshot to show what i mean. See how the top title is red but the second is blue.

Hi hypnotic ! I tried to replicate your query (see below) but can't find any way of making the titles go blue so I imagine it must have something to do with your browser, Firefox ?? There again I'm no expert so someone more proficient may be able to shed further light ? Take care Op

Are they deals that you have previously clicked on to look at? It could be your browser settings for pages you have visited are over-riding the website's settings.

Try clicking on a red deal title, then come back to the main page and see if it changes to blue (or vice versa if that doesn't work).

Already tried that. Some just show blue when i've never been on that thread. I use Firefox and haven't altered any settings that would make this happen. I thought it was just a feature of the website that i didnt know the meaning of.

Just got it too, no idea why:

What view/tab is that in ?

I am in custom. I can think of no way to explain it.
