New forum software & styling

Postby tbaker2500 » Fri Mar 13, 2015 3:29 am

Howdy all,
We've updated the forums software to a modern version which has some new interface improvements. However, the theme is currently the default. We will be fixing this soon. Fixed. See below for user-customization options. If you run into any issues, post here and we'll resolve them ASAP.
Thanks
Tom

it was like when you hop back into your car in the parking lot, then realized it's not your car :shock:
Many on the forum have asked me, so here's my answer: a spoonful of lighter fluid. And you'll need to wash it out really well when you're done.

Thanks to an awesome effort from Bo and Tom, new styles are up and the forum looks like it belongs to Drabblecast again!

You, dear user, can select which style works best for you. Choose from:
  • "Drabblecast, dark" -- the default
  • "Drabblecast, light" -- the professional's choice
  • "prosilver" -- the style that is factory shipped with the forum SW

You can change your style by going to your user control panel, selecting Board preferences -> Edit global settings, and changing My board style.

All styles are designed to work, at least a little, with mobile devices. And we have our eye out for future styles that might work even better.

Post feedback here or in the "Tech Support" area.

And great thanks go to humble ASID here, who drove the whole process and worked with Bo to get the style made.
I really like the new layout, it works great on my phone now, and has a light, airy death-by-tentacles feel.

Wow, a guy takes a vacation and comes back to different house than the one he left...

Seriously, it looks great. Good job to all involved in the project.
