As a Mod/Admin at the index level, seeing all forums or when in a forum viewing the threads or when inside a thread viewing the posts - using Subsilver - you will see at the top left the quick access pulldown and, amongst other buttons, a "hammer" symbol that leads to the moderator panel.
This button is not available when e.g. having selected newest topics from the pulldown or going into the PM section etc. The latter sort of makes sense but why does the button disappear to begin with? The Admin button is always available (thankfully!) so why not the Mod button? This is especially annoying when inside any of the quick access sections where one would possibly see the need to intervene as a Mod but can't, from that point, as there is no Mod button.
I don't believe that this is a bug but rather done on purpose. I'm just wondering if I can get that button to show everywhere (like the Admin button). Anyone got any input? Thanks.
