I don't think much has changed, except it is harder to read the replies due to light print.  The emoticons are creepy.

Hello to all

Looking at your suggestions to see what can we change. The template is a custom one, so I don't know if it is possible to change the font size but this is the same size as the "previous" one. The font itself is different.

Ads, we only have two at tops and it's a way to pay the bills of hosting, maybe I can do something about it in the tablet/mobile department.

Unread and replies are in the right upper corner.

We do now allow register and login with facebook, twitter, google and wordpress. I think current accounts can link to the social logins.

Working on the photo department. :)

Keep them coming.

Regards

For people with ads on their pages,  you can download a free program called Adblock, it will block all ads.  I don't have any at all on my page.  :)

Here is a screen shot of the home page on my laptop.

JulieO that looks good.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Nice and clean Julie, love it.  I looked at Adblock but couldn't work out how to download it  :-))  Nothing happened when I clicked on download.

Do you have a downloads folder Judy?  You might find it in there and then will have to click on it to install.  I'm on a Mac so am unsure how different it is to a Windows pc.

I hardly use my ipad anymore, but just having a look in the app store, this sounds like it does the same.

New Forum looks good but when reading I like fonts with serifs; easier on the old eyes.

Several minor issues!
The print is really difficult to read easily against the backgroud shading.
It would be good if it was bolder and not so fine.
Also Tapatalk not working. Although I am not keen on Tapatalk it would be easier to read than the new forum on an ipad.
Also the little "last post" icon is tiny and when you enlarge to click you loose perspective on the screen.
Thanks for all the work though it is good to update the forum.[size=12pt

I will check with the designer he way to "darker" the font and maybe increase a pixel or two.

Tweaking adds to accommodate the suggestions, since they are the way to pay the hosting.

Thanks for reducing the number of stickies. For someone who can't keep up with all comments posted in 'unread' it makes the forum much easier to browse and get involved in.
