New Layout

Postby Lyria on Wed Aug 27, 2008 8:04 am

Okay, so if you're reading this you've found the new forum and I am sure you will all have an opinion on it. Yes I am aware it's very different and not at all what we've been used to but I am also sure we will get used to it if we give it a chance, my initial reaction wasn't great but having had a look around I have to say it's rapidly growing on me and I am sure it will you as well.

A lot of you know I use JV World from time to time and a similar thing happened there, yes a lot of angry things were said about the new layout there and I am sure they will be here, not everyone will like it, that would be too much to ask I know.

All I am saying is please do give it a chance. If there is something you feel strongly about then please of course feel free to say so here. I can't promise we can get things changed to exactly what everyone wants but we will try to take on board the majority views and see what can be done, if anything.

At least all our old posts and post counts are still here, that is one good thing! So have a poke round, and let us know what you think :)

Yes you can still have your avatars, as well, you just have to reload them.

Just one more thing, you have to log in with your user name and not your login name now! Just to catch you out ;)

A big thanks to admin who has put an awful lot of work into this!! we do appreciate it, honest :D

Really, I'm kinda "meh" on the whole phpBB3 thing. Practically everyone (apart from jm) uses it, so it seems kind of bland and generic compared to the old layout.

Also, I miss quick reply because I'm all lazy like that.

It's not bad, I 'v got used to it fast when they changed layout of forum for the first time.
Listen, it was hard enough to drive those heavy old cars back then under normal circumstances, but with a crazed monkey clawing you at the same time, it becomes nearly impossible! http://www.timflock.com/jocko.htm

Is it possible to put avatar and everything that goes with it on the left side?I couldn't find it in user control panel-I hope I am not nagging too much. :wink:

Well so far no real complaints, that's good :)

Hmm well you can make the posts run either way up but moving the avatars to the left, not sure about that one sorry. :roll:

No No 13, good to see you :D :D

Well it looks nicer, but I preferred it when all the latest posts to a thread appeared at the top of the page rather than the bottom. Call me lazy if you like.

Also, how do I set an avatar??? And how do you add an image to a post??? I've followed the instructions in the FAQ but it doesn't work for me :(

Keep up the good work.
