With the installation of the brand new forum and the huge amounts of data and settings that had to be transferred, it is inevitable that errors will have crept in.

Known Issues:

[ATTACHMENT NOT FOUND]
There are a lot of places (380 to be precise) where attachments were not transferred over. These need to be fixed by hand which will take a while.

Private Messages
Due to the silly way the old forum stored PMs, deleted messages will have reappeared. It was either delete everyone's PMs or keep them all.
Just delete the ones you don't want to keep.

If you notice anything wrong, missing or just slightly odd, please let me know and I'll do my best to fix it as quickly as possible!

Hi Richard…it looks much lighter and brighter and will doubtless take me a long time to get my head around! Well done Wink

That's great stuff Rich, thank you for all your hard work. As you say I'm sure there will be faults but hopefully not to many. I understand it was not easy moving from one to the other and don't pretend to understand it either!

I kind of liked the old look, all that black and silver, but was hell to read outside of a darkened room.
Style over substance, so very Delorean!!! :lol:
Well done on all the hard work.

Reputation??? How do I get mine to proceed me?

I hate to be a stick in the mud but is there the chance of a user-control panel option to switch to a darker version of the theme? I like how clean the new interface is but it's just too darn bright!

Awesome work!  Looks much neater and modern.  One thing...can you make it so that you can change the white to charcoal grey as an option?  The white kills my naff eyes Smile

Liking the change and I'm sure more tweaks are happening as we speak but how about brushed stainless instead of the white boarder, just a tad bright at the moment, I gotta put on the shades  Cool

There's just no pleasing some people! Rolleyes 

I was hoping it might just be the sudden change from the black, but I agree the white is a little too bright.

I appreciate everyone's feedback, please keep it coming!

I'm already working on something a little 'greyer'. Keep an eye on the themes selector under 'settings' in your User CP

Hi Rich, Just used the forum on my phone and it's much clearer and easier to use. My eyes have adjusted to the white boarders on my PC now   Blush

I've changed my mind.  It's all rubbish! Tongue Big Grin

Top work Rich.  Super clean, I love it!!  Like you said, light grey or maybe grained stainless background would be awesome.  Take an overhead photo of a bonnet? Cool

What's the limit on PMs?

I just went to my box and it says 100% full, so I deleted many, many of them and it's still 100% full.
