    Uhm the Forums, daily almost lately are going down, as is the rest of the website. I'm wondering what is going on?

    Hmm, thanks Pak. I haven't seen any outages myself, but I'll check it out.

    I was getting a "connection denied" error yesterday. Could access every other site just fine. I figured the web host was just burping. :D

    the colours certainly look good (and better than the recent change). Some problems with font size though. Are they taking feedback?

    "Are they taking feedback?"
    Yes, Jason and the web team are watching this thread.

    I haven't tried all the options yet, but if you go to your user profile (from the pull-down menu under your username when logged in) and select "User Settings", you can select the "skin" which will change some of the colors, etc for your display.

    Font size looks fine to me!
    I've noticed that this forum runs A LOT better on my mobile phone now. I don't think the last version was responsive. This resizes nicely, now.

    can't see a difference of any kind between the 3 skins tbh Bill. It all looks the same grey/white/blue.

    In the latest update, I cannot tell whether I've read a thread or not. The thread titles on the front page of a channel appear bold. Subsequent pages are not bold. Nothing happens when I click on Mark channel as read. Is there some setting I need to change in order for me to see some difference between read and unread threads?

    Hi Pebble,
    You only see three skin options? I see 14 , but I also notice that the change between them is minimal (if at all).

    Raymondo,
    I don't know of any changes you need to make, the web team will check into this as they work through the bugs in this install. Thanks for pointing it out.

    Links like "Practical Farming Course" don't work.

    Can still only see 3 Bill. I'm guessing your admin status gives you more options?

    Raymondo, I'm seeing some dysfunction too. It would be good if there could be a new posts link again, that's my main way into the forum each time I come.

    The header seems overblown to me. On my laptop it takes up a full page which means every single page I look at on the forum isn't the forum but the advertising for the main PRI site. More scrolling too. Not conducive to getting people to spend more time here. I get that there needs to be clear pathways to other PRI initiatives, but this isn't the way to do it.

    "why do upgrades always degrade ability to use something?"

    Because the people doing the upgrade don't use the thing they are upgrading? (or listen to those that do ;-)

    Hi All,

    The upgrade was for a more mobile friendly system. vBulltetin had to be completely ripped out to install the new upgrade, it would not update on a live service. With the new header and footer, these are going to be standard as this keeps with the theme of the new website we are building, it should be more responsive and that is one of the things we are working on. Rest assured, we are hearing what you are telling us.

    Cheers

    Jason
