Great upgrade :clap: sure a few initial bugs but have you tried MS 10!! Awesome job and a search function that actually brings up the subject you are searching for ! :bow:
I am not digging the avocado green/yellow header color.
+1 for the topic titles bug. Really annoying to get the first 3 words of a topic.
Otherwise, I like it! Drag and Drop upload is a much needed upgrade to the 21st century and the actual thread view is much better at showing me content. Thanks for the quick sidebar fix, as well!
Updated...My Active Topics tab is truncating the thread titles using both forum skins
Tools Drop-down at the top and scroll toHow do I show posts since my last visit? It's the only function of the old forum I ever used.
Having creative tweaks the colors, might take 24-48 hours to fix.I am not digging the avocado green/yellow header color. In the user control panel it appears to be a user editable feature. I have played with changing the color but nothing actually changes on the site for me. I have logged off and closed my browser (chrome) and logged back on, no change.
Finally someone says what I wanted to say... With all the praising and positive comments I told myself not to post anything negative since the morning. Thank you Scott.Wow, I'm disappointed that this design change was never discussed with the users.
To me, it looks hideous, especially the colors, and all the spacings and tabs are too large. This will be the only website I'll have to 'zoom out' to make everything look smaller and compact so that I can scroll less.
And what's up with the low-res or jpeg artifacts on the left three cars in the main banner? These jagged edges are an eyesore.
Is the left sidebar missing? The main content looks lopsided and off-center now. I much prefer the look of the previous version where everything important was right in the center of the screen since I use a VERY LARGE monitor. The front page looks fine, though, since it's 'centered', albeit it's bit narrow and the right sidebar is encroaching to the center.
The welcome changes are:
abandoning the forum software's search in favor of google, although I always used "site:lotustalk.com blah blab blah" on a separate tab.
streamlined file attachment? (hopefully it resizes all the pictures on its own? It's the only reason why I link instead of attaching).
Sure, this is a drastic change and, it can be expected that some will not like it. I am one of them.
I will eventually deal with the new look, but the thing I don't like the most and feels that needs to be changed (not the trivial stuff like the color choices) is the vertical spacing between the tabs. Everything is too tall and have too much space!
I hope the admins and designers give it some more time 'til everything looks 'right'.
