I went into my profile and it appears the old board style was removed.. I tried to change it back but there wasn't the option to. Can you add that back? It should be a single file under the "style" or "styles" directory from the old site. You may have to import it in via the admin menu, but I've done similar for boards I've run.

Thanks

The new design is ok. Another forum I'm a member of uses the same one.

However, one thing that irks me about this forum and the other one that I'm a member of is, when you click on a link, it doesn't open a new window. That in itself is ok, but it sucks when I hit the 'Red X' button to close out of that page (instead of the 'Back button'), and suddenly I'm staring at a pic of my dogs (monitor wallpaper). :bang:


Andrew's working on that exact issue. If it's not fixed already, it will be soon.

In the mean time you can hold shift while you click your link. That will open a new window (using IE at least).

I use Firefox, so I've been 'right clicking' on links and opening them in a new window........most of the time. :roll: However, it's frustrating when I forget to right click and then close the link and find myself staring at a pic of my dogs........ :bang: :lol:

On FF, middle click opens it in a new tab I believe.

Control-click, for those of us with only two buttons on our meeces.

I'd like to extend my thanks once again for doing the heavy lifting (hell, all the lifting I can see) Minor bumps abound in this type of thing but it's an important and needed step.

Thanks Andrew.

Paul
