Hi there,

As many have already noticed the forum has now been upgraded.

In the end we had to ditch the old theme (design look) as it did not like the forum software version upgrade that was absolutely necessary to do ( actually overdue) from a security point of view. We had to recreate our forum theme look again from the latest version of the standard theme.

So now is the time to let us know about any bugs or problems and we will see if we can fix them.

The removal of the blue zebra crossing to highlight those on-line is top of the list.

Can't say it isn't fun...watching work in progress is always interesting, surprising how long this sort of thing takes!

I appear to have lost some of my posts during the upgrade. :think: I was really proud of passing the 5,000 mark but I noticed I had dropped back to 4,999 again so with any luck this post will take my back to the 5,000 milestone again

Update,
Yes it did. :D :thumbup:

Hi,
Smartphone different layout.

Logout is a problem:
Username (containing logout) in top r.h. corner appears green on green, so invisible.

Quick links tab also rather non-intuitive....Not the onvious place to look for New Posts, Active Topics etc.
Should be more clearly titled, or its contents moved to a spot of their own.

Zebra: php usually brings up the Online stripe only in the top r.h. corner of a post, not all over.

Otherwise, looking good!
Chris

Hi,
Login showing up Yellow on Green so good
Once logged in showing Picture and Username (Yellow on Green) so also OK

Both on Smartphone and PC.........so no problem here........... :D

Quick Links is using Standard 3 bar Menu Icon.

Cannot read the yellow on sludgy yellow on the latest posts menu - at least on iPad.

I get it OK on the iPad but it's still bad on the PC.

Does anyone still have the blue bands for online status? I do, but it might be because of my Mod status.

We do seem to be getting there though and there are some improvements.

We have discontinued the Guru's Den and are looking at open access to the Amigos Lounge as it seems impossible to automate access based on post count.

The "report post" is working at last so that should cut down on all the PMs we get. Just to fill you in, if a post is reported it is flagged immediately in the thread so it's easy to spot and deal with.

It's been a busy day!

No seems to have gone, but gone completely, most other implementations of this board software do have some indication.

Me too, still there.
And in the New Posts listing, there is text (forum sections) appearing as yellow on buff, not possible to read.
Logout - User Name - gone invisible again.

Think I must have caught you mid-tweak!
