    Not close to done Dennis I still have a lot to do on the colors and styles. Coming along though just time consuming learning all the new features we have now.

    Honestly, I can't say I'm a fan of it's present form. Looking forward to the tweaking. I could make my own style changes, but I'll wait to see what kind of choices become available.

    Is there still a PM option?

    Click on a member name and hit start a conversation. Its just called something different. Sends them a PM. Its literally been up an hour. I am still learning how to edit fonts and styles.

    Thanks for the pointer to find the PM.

    I didn't mean any offense by my opinion. I have never been a fan of the all white background regardless of where it's found -- hurts the eyes.

    Mike you get complaints about the other way around as well. Black backgrounds hurt the eyes as well and you can't read them lol No offense taken

    This is what I paid for???!!!???

    OK kidding. It's going to be super duper, I just know it.

    One thing about it though, I haven't yet found a way to click on the newest post in a thread. Will keep checking.

    Its right under the thread topic, when there is a new thread in the topic you will see. Go to First Unread Man i thought you were a computer guy lol. If you have viewed all thread replies it will not appear.

    I was referring to the 'New Posts' section, where they're all lumped together, but thanks. And anyway, in that section you just click on the thread title and it automatically goes there. Not 100% intuitive but heck, it works. And a computer guy? Me? Nah, I'm a nobody.

    I am against change, of any kind. Nobody wants to learn how to do something new. The old way is always the best way. No, I'm kidding. This is pretty fancy and nice. Not Patriot or Durango forum nice, but nice nonetheless.

    Still got a lot of stuff to do. Fonts on here are tough everything is in layers and tagged as something different. A definite learning curve/process.

    I think this will work out great. It was a big learning curve when we jumped to vBulletin, and this will become familiar to us all in time.

    When viewing the titles in a sub-forum, any title that contains new messages will have a bullet link to the left of the title. When hovering the mouse over the bullet link a pop-up tip will appear showing, "Go to first unread message".

    They're now called 'Titles' instead of the more commonly used 'Threads' and 'Messages' instead of the more commonly used 'Posts'. It's reinventing the 'Wheel', I mean, 'Circular Frame'. ;)

    Yes Conversations not PMs /Titles not Threads, its a bit different but I think once everybody gets used to it we will be OK. Got the same stuff switching from ultimateBB to vBulletin last time there is a small learning curve.
