You may have noticed something different...
« on: May 18, 2012, 11:02:55 PM »
We have changed the default theme.  And were forced to reset everyone.

If you liked one of the other options you can switch it back in your theme settings.   

The reasoning was because the handy dandy side bar that I loved so much started to hurt me.    Truly a sad love story.   Romeo and Juliet for the 21st century.

But just like the suave forum users we are the; past is forgotten and we have gotten a new, shiny theme to put on our elbows ;)

Take from that what you will about my character and moral fortitude 8)

What about the side bar was hurting you?

So sorry for your pain, Chris.  But, hey, the new look is shiny and purple so out with the old and in with the new!

Yep, I sure did!  I think I prefer the menu on the left, but I'm willing to give this view a try.  Nice that we all have the option to switch back and forth!

I couldn't find the option to go back to the side bar.  The only choices I saw all looked like the new default with the links/tabs across the top.

Thanks, Chris.  I thought I liked it before but now I can zoom a bit to make it easier to read without the sidebar getting in the way.  And the Menu is still easily available.  What a guru you are !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I really like the new format, for an "older" person it is great to have a bit bigger screen to see and not have part of it taken by they left side bar!  A "like" from me!!

The side bar kept intruding into my very limited space on my iphone and kept me from logging in on the phone.  I hope and pray that is fixed.  If I can only read the forum on the computer then my access time will be quite limited.

Cheryl, there is an app people keep mentioning for the iPhone and iPad called tapatalk.  I haven't tried it but it gets mentioned a lot here and apparently will make forum access easy from the phone.

Hey Chris!

I think I like the new format!!  But how do I get the color to stay what I want?  I of course like the purple, but when I log out and come back later it is back to blue.  I thought I found something in my profile but it does not seem to work.

I tried it today and it worked fine.  I was accessing the posts from my phone when it was telling me there were new posts.  Trying to adapt...

Same here.  I set it to purple, but if I refresh the page it changes back to blue.
