    Good work. Will take a bit of getting used to the new layout but certainly looks good.

    A couple of nosey questions:

    Is the 'What's New' tab the same as the 'New Posts' link in the forums section?

    Also, why some of the icons are red and others are blue next to the thread names? I can't figure it out.

    Red means that there are unread new posts in that forum, blue means you've red em all. Like the yellow & greay balls in version 1

    One new feature you might all appreciate is the "auto save". I would imagine that everyone at one time or another has lost a huge post because something went wrong when they posted it? Not any more :drinking:.

    The new posts is exactly what it says, you see the latest posts, the same as todays posts. What's new will include front page articles, posts, blogs and calendar events.

    Hi Admin

    I use to like the " new football posts" button on the previous one, any chance of having it back, cuts out having to go through a lot of silly non football posts!

    Worth noting to people by the way, the upgrade isn't just features or aesthetically different, it also carries a lot of updated security.

    PS, Admin, got something to ask you

    Give me a few days for that one to work out how the top part is coded, then I'll add it.

    yep I'll open it up shortly

    Yes, it should be on the main forum page. Click on the logo at the top and it will always take you to the right place.

    If you find the shoutbox a bit squashed, click on the chevron type symbol to the right of the league table and it will go full screen. I'll turn it on at quarter to.

    There will be, but we need to make sure everything is working well first.

    The arcade is now installed but only with default games. The other games will be added to during the week, starting with the old favorites.

    It's going to be a cookie problem. What browser are you using?

    I'd suggest loggin out, dumping your cookies and then re-logging back in again.

    We need to know all the issues so no problems with you reporting them Simms. The favicon is now sorted.

    How do you make the favicon show? I've still got the VBulletin icon as mine.

    Me too.

    Also, I don't have any adverts anywhere. Have they been turned off?

    Also, this thread doesn't appear in New Posts.
