    hey folks,

    as you'll no doubt have noticed by now, i've upgraded the software that this forum runs on.

    please let me know if you notice any weirdness in the first couple of days.

    thanks!!

    murray :D

    Good job Murray, well done mate...no glitches so far on my end.

    FWIW, one improvement I'm chuffed about is the underlining of links - for anyone with abnormal colour vision they could be hard to pick up in the old format, which is incidentally, partly why I laboriously typed '(Click to view)' after links so many times. :wink:

    Very cool ! One suggestion...

    On the forums index page, if it was possible to get the Post title in the "Latest Post" column alongside the posters name.
    This was helpful to see if anything new was posted from the index page.

    Thanks !

    Murray,

    I used to 'subscribe' to the RSS feed of recent posts. Is that feed an option for the new look board?

    Regards, Gary

    It would be great to have a theme that we could select with the post information on the left hand side. Quite difficult getting used to the opposite pages!
