hi good job with the update, design is clean but i find out that the text are harder to read.

black bg with white text was easier. except that this look very nice and some feature is missing hope this can be insert in a near furture.

hey great job with the update!
I was kinda worried as I saw the forum inoperative yesterday.
Don't know but I got used to the previous white on black look and I prefer the DVGFX2 style now.
Would it be able to have that style as default w/o logging in? The white silver design is a torture for the eyes.
The melankolia looks fine, but w/o so much blue it would look better :)
Anyway, great to see you back!

Very nice! thanks for all of your time and effort. dont know what i'd do without the BBS. It looks alot better now, but I think that other one looks a little better. Either way, its much better and updated than before
Thanks Again!!

Maybe a nitpicky thing, but do you have the option to put that google search bar back on the upper right of the page? I use that thing every time I'm on the forum (usually multiple times) and it sometimes produces more predicable search results.

Thanks for the time you guys put in doing the update!!
Cheers,

Dave,

I've had to play around a lot with all of the colours.css and the common.css files to change some colors on different things on my theme for The Bro Den. If you wanted to do any tweaking of this theme I would be glad to download the template and look into it for you.

Haven't played around with the features yet, but I do like the new look a lot better.

Also, for some reason, this site seems to load much faster.

Thanks Dave for all the hard work you've put into this forum over the years.

Ehh, not a big fan of the new layout, then again I'm so used to vbulletin that anything else seems weird. The old layout was super dated though, I wasn't to sure about even joining when people told me about this place...

I enabled the Melankolia style. It should be available for you to choose in board preferences. If you use it and find any issues, please let us know.

The more I used the DVGFX2 style, the more I didn't care for it....

Thanks

It's definitely better than the DVGFX2 but I'll be sticking with the silver skin for now.

Was your PM box full, or close to being full? Were they in a folder?

I've changed the default style to Melankolia and deactivated DVGFX2. Melankolia will suit our needs better.

I like the new/default board skin. Better resembles the old. Easier to see which are read/unread posts too along with user for each.

Only beef I have now is the text for the reply area is too dark. Should be white or something that has more contrast against the already dark/black background.

Large Rotating Header images of our cars?

now that would be sweet. i can see you are doing something similar maybe right now.

i know it's possible and can look into it if need be.... something similar to the wordpress rotating header located here:

I'd like to suggest making things a bit wider since an 800px wide image breaks the tables.

I'm not sure we can adjust the table width. At least with the new version, it just adjusts that one post, and not the entire thread.

Maybe we can look into an autoresize picture mod.

Question - Am I the only one where it doesn't refresh which posts are old and which ones are new when I visit the BBS later? What I mean is that unless I look at every thread in a forum it shows the forum as having new posts even though that forum may not have seen a post in 2 days but I've logged on 20+ times within those two days. It does this in the forums on individual threads as well. The net sum is now all the forums show new posts everytime hop on the BBS.

Is there an option I have failed to select within my preferences? If it's a function of the board and beyond change - I can live with it. Just curious.

BTW, I like the new format and color scheme!
