Welcome to the new forum software. Our old version was almost 6 versions out of date but I didn't want to upgrade during the season because of the expected hours downtime.


Lots of new features

such as calendar import and export, it should help when the NHL decides to play a game again.

You can change the color of the skin by clicking the paintbrush in the top right corner of the screen. I am still working on the skins, and we might even change it again.

I also ask that you go through the skin sets in the waaaay bottom of the screen and change "themes" to see what you like best.



If you see anything odd let me know! We are also trying to track down that damn Database error issue still.

Whoa.

Oh and I guess subtitles are gone as I noticed at other IP boards that went through the upgrade.

This is how big your signature should be. Any larger and you are compensating.

Fancy. I can't seem to get the "change themes" button to work, though. It just takes me to the top of the thread and doesn't change anything.

Edit: Also, I guess the forum decided my Facebook profile picture is going to be my new avatar? OK then. Enjoy my pretty face till I find a new one :P

Was having a problem viewing new post's from the view new content screen but it seems it was only for threads after the update. It kept taking me to the very first post of the thread as unread, even when clicking the star or dot on the left side.

RSC you seem to have linked your facebook to NJDevs and allowed the sharing. I removed the pic for you, but I need to figure how to unlink.


The themes thing seems to be a permission issue, working on that

I fixed the Skin selector, see if you all can change them now.

This skin gets a little ugly when the window is small, see how the account information area (search, messenger, notifications, etc...) moves down below the header image. I like the way the account information area in the regular ipboard theme works.

I agree, it seems this particular skin is not very customizable. I am in the hunt for something better. I dont care for all the pink either!

Oh the changes I have lived through. ;) The ip board theme doesn't have a paintbrush. That one is easier on my eyes. This one is organized fine however the pink is a bit much.

The FF spellcheck isn't working with this set up.

Hope this feedback helps. Great job you do here DM.

Really like the new skin, the custom color (paintbrush) is a nice feature. Only complaint is the pink overload in the threads, otherwise looks great.

I kinda dig it. Colors are a little wonky right now, but hell, I can even live with the pink if we convince everyone it's for breast cancer awareness year-round.
