The forums CMS format are finally usable to me again so please thank the people involved. There are still a couple small glitches as I write this the “new post” and “new thread” are competing for the same space but hey its a big improvement. Also the little dropdown arrows are still bright white and blend into the background.
+1 and +remaining issues.
Are there any remaining issues now? openSUSE-CMS style now looks complete and very clear here. Even the little white menu drop-down arrows (just visible) are completely visible on mouse-over on each one, sharp text in black and on reversal. A nice job!

Not that I’m aware of, but if there are, please let us know.
We do know that long subject names/forum names now overlap the right-hand
menus, but that was a compromise to deal with the wrapping causing
problems on the left-hand side. Not seeing that as a huge issue at the
moment, since going to the links on the right-hand side isn’t something
one tends to do while reading posts, to my knowledge.

The wrapping was a real mess, but not seen it recently so it must have been fixed. I haven’t noticed the overlap, if any, getting in the way.
everything looks good again from firefox 21
With the opensuse theme, the “Mark Forums Read” is just text and not a link. So I still have to use the VB4 theme if I want that “Mark Forums Read” link.
Eh? I use it all the time, including just now, and the link appears and works here, on the page of results from a search for new posts. How do you reach your page with the duff link (for steps to reproduce it)?
That’s on the page that I get for “New Posts” when using the “openSUSE-CMS” style.
There is more than one way to get to new posts!
Assuming you do: home > English > New Posts > Mark Forums Read, then I cannot reproduce your problem. It works here using a Mozilla browser.
Same result goes for Konqueror browser.
I skip the “English”, though that doesn’t seem to make any difference.
There’s a list of 7 items near the top. All are active as links, except “Mark Forums Read”.
If I check that page while I am not logged in, then “Mark Forums Read” is an active link, though it is pointless in that case. But, if I am logged in, that is just dead text.
Right now, I am using firefox. The last time that I tried konqueror, it was the same. It I try konqueror right now, while not logged in, then the link is active.
Maybe the forum doesn’t like me
Suggests to me that you need to clear something like cookies and/or cache for all the failing browsers. :\
I clear the relevant cookies on every firefox restart. I don’t clear all cookies. I clear all but a small list, and I do not have “opensuse”, “novell” or “attachmate” on that small list.
I don’t normally clear cache. Maybe I’ll try that before I login tomorrow, though I doubt that it will change anything.
Perhaps its an extension, though I use only a few. I’ll try disabling “openSUSE Firefox Extensions 1.0.2” when I next restart firefox.
I have those Firefox extensions 1.0.2, so they are installed by default, and still no problem here.

I just tried that.
More specifically, I have a test user on a Tumbleweed box. There was no “.mozilla” for that user, so I had never used firefox with that user.
I fired up “firefox” (running Gnome 3.8.2). I logged into the forum with my usual loginid and password. I set the forum theme to openSUSE-CMS for that session, then loaded the “New Posts” page.
“Mark Forums Read” is still dead text, not a link.
I guess it is possible that it could be due to something in my forum profile settings, though there is nothing particularly elaborate there.
Verdict: it is still broken.

How are you determining that? By functionality or by looking at the
source, for example? I suggest looking at the source and confirming
whether you have an <a> element. Perhaps post a snippet.

Have you tried View/Page Style/No Style in Firefox? That can sometimes
reveal links that are apparently not working.
> Verdict: it is still broken.
Functionality. Nothing happens if I move the mouse pointer there and click.
It does show an apparent link:
<li id="vbnew_mfr"><a rel="nofollow" href="[forumdisplay.php?do=markread&markreadhash=1371046468-51abb64c128c430f3aebf2d2c13770160a955428](https://forums.opensuse.org/view-source:https://forums.opensuse.org/forumdisplay.php?do=markread&markreadhash=1371046468-51abb64c128c430f3aebf2d2c13770160a955428)">Mark Forums Read</a></li>
The link is active when I do that, though I would not want to read the page in that form.

OK. That’s good. It makes it a lot clearer what is happening.
I think you have a CSS issue. Some element, perhaps invisible, is
overlaying the link. I sometimes get them on specific sites with
particular browser versions.
I suppose posting an image might give some clues.
Another approach would be to use Firebug to browse around that area and
see if you can see what is overlaying what. There may be more specific
tools that I haven’t used.
