    See those little "v" buttons in the top right hand corner.
    Well, the second one from the left is the View New Posts button.
    This is a beta version of vb3.0 so the RC should be changed and there will be further differences once it goes GOLD.

    Goto vBulletin Options in the Admin CP and then go to the "Message Posting and Editing Options" section :)

    Thanks Chroder!
    I went with the first option, but that required you to click on a quick reply icon on one of the posts first.
    To disable having to click on that first, which I then did, renders the hybrid and threaded formats non-sensical.
    Not sure which is the best option now.

    I wonder if the threaded and hybrid formats can be disabled.

    Same options place, but under "Threaded / Hybrid Mode Options (showthread)" this time ;)

    Though I'm not sure what the option does alone. On DevBox I totally editted out the Threaded/Hybird mode on the templates, not sure if the setting hides the option.
