Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.
Messages are "chained" if there are only replies at the first level, i.e. 1/1.html, 1/1/1.html etc. In case of "chained" messages the message number is replaced by the icon and there is no indentation.

On Linux, and specifically the RHEL6/7 family, of which SLF is presumably binary compatible, then as noted in the Installation Guide, Software Collections can be used to install an up-to-date gcc 4.8/4.9 (and even 5) toolchain. Whilst this is straying slightly into site-specific setups, it is my understanding that FNAL Computing provide installs of newer GCCs via the UPS mechanism.
