Why are some threads highlighted in purple?

And yes, I've already searched for "purple highlighting" which gave me nothing.

I would assume you have the "Thread Listing Color Status" option enabled.

What legend?

I see this:

Layout Options | Width: Wide Color:
but that has nothing to do with thread marking, does it? If so, it's a far cry from intuitive.

Those are the style options. I think Marco is a little confused

Hmm, I take this must only happen if the option is enabled, since I dont have it.

If you turn on the "Thread Listing Color Status" in your user profile options, then this will result in 2 changes to your display:

- It will color code the threads (no colors if this option is turned off).
- It will add the legend to the bottom of the page

So either you have the coloring of threads active and then you will also have the legend, or it is turned off and you won't have the legend nor the colored threads.

I've now turned it off in the User CP but I still have the legend.

Added: Oh. OK. I gather there is another legend if that option is enabled.

I (and I believe Paul initially) was referring to the attached.

As noted above, it only shows if you have that option enabled. I no longer do.
