If you're reading this, the forum has now been upgraded to SMF 2.1.

Feel free to report any issues. Especially if any colours look a bit out of place on the themes. I've tried to check as much as I can.

I mostly like the new changes with exceptions: I don't like that you can't see avatars on mobile, or the large spaces between images on mobile, critically having two different profile drop down menus (the ones with log out options present) I think's needlessly complicated, and finally marking forums read being part of a drop down menu with no other options I think's kinda pointless.

Yeah, that's one of the changes they made. I had mixed feelings about the avatars too. But then thought, people on capped/slow mobile plans aren't going to be wanting to download avatars. I might change it back if people really want it.

Have you got a post example?

Oh, you mean in the header. That one is mine from the homepage. I knew it was duplicating what was already on the forum but just kept in there for consistency. I could have somehow tried to move the forum one to the top but it just would have got too complicated as it wasn't my menu.

Here's an example of images acting strangely for me anyway.

And Avatars are only 100x100 though, even someone on shoestring internet ought to be able to afford to see them.

Also the header's ability to log in's broken.

And not being able to go to the most recent post in a thread directly's anymore's a downgrade.

Thanks. I'll sort the images thing out. That shouldn't be happening.

Fixed these now.

Too bad I can't resize the fonts to make the site readable.  Looks like I'll finally have to move on.

I'd like the avatars back on mobile. It makes it easier to read through threads and see who's posting.

Upping the zoom in the browser works in a pinch.

So, the draft feature allow you to delete a thread without mods powers?

Still curiously not an option when using new replies or unread posts.

That's what I used to do.  Now it cuts off the rightmost column.  It's a staggeringly frustrating first-world problem.

The changes honestly make the forum feel even more outdated than previously to me in their current state.

Come on guys, comments like these really aren't helpful. I've just spent a solid two months of my time doing this. I agree with most of what you've said and will make improvements.

The bottom line is, and I go through this every time there is an update. People simply don't like change or anything remotely different.

I understand, and appreciate that effort, but it's more the absence of old features rather than the addition of new ones I think people are griping about honestly.
