    Default Fantastic!

    Great work to all those admins behind the scenes! The new site looks great
    One minor nit - it's a bit difficult to see which posts are new, unlike in the old forum. Anyway, just my opinion. Keep up the good work!

    The easiest way Joshua is to use the 'New Posts' link to the left hand side of the top navbar. It links to any new posts. Posts you haven't read or with new replies appear in dark blue and bold.

    I found the same thing Josh, should be easy to get used to I think. I'll try your suggestion now Rich.

    I'd like to add my vote of thanks to all the admins who have worked hard to produce the new design. It looks great and is simple to use. Well done!
    Cheers,

    The whole site looks awesome right now!! I love it! But the posts in Videos don't show an embedded video, more a code that worked in the old forum, but not now:

    Thanks Nathan.

    The youtube tag doesn't appear to have migrated properly. I'll fix those up.

    Great work to all the admins for creating the new site. It looks fantastic and although it will take me a little while to figure it out properly, it's really done the site wonders

    Another minor nit is that the small box on the side, showing the newest posts, is in gmt time, rather than the time you've set the board time-zone to be on your account...

    I hope I don't sound ungrateful with all of these! I do love the new look, just trying to help weed out the problems

    It's showing the correct time for me, Nathan. If you've only just changed your timezone in usercp then you might need to refresh the page for it to update. The sidebar is cached for 5 minutes so it might lag behind if you've just changed time.

    Wow, that's quite a change. Still catching up with some of the changes, but it looks like some great positive steps have been performed by our wonderful admin and mods Thanks guys!!

    I did find the quick reply that was introduced recently on the old forum useful, I must say... Can this software do that?

    Cheers,

    Oh dear, I must be going crazy...

    I also seem to be having issues with my signature. It's not formatted right. I tried to reformat it, and I see there's a new rule stating that sigs can only be five lines long I don't wanna lose my little Qwerty Grasswren; is there any way for me to keep it?
