Thanks to everyone involved for all the hard work. I'm pleased the site is finally getting a long overdue update. I did like the old style better but am happy to take some bad with the overwhelming good the update will bring.

May have been mentioned elsewhere, but is the search function not working for the forums currently?

I'd try and search for a post on this ... but ...

:wink:
Worked for me. What did ya try to search for?

As others have said, readability is a major issue. On my tablet, have to scroll 2 pages/screens past subforums and announcements just to get to the posts in any section. On my phone, it's probably 3-4.

Thu, June 6th, 2019. The day EB died :(
Melodramatic much?

My first thought was to lash out at this but I'm not going to.

I'm fearful that the tech guys who have been putting a heck of a lot of hours in to sort things out behind the scenes will read the negative comments and decide they don't want to help out. This would be a massive shame because we've got some great plans to bring people some of the features they've been asking for for so long.

I completely understand where you're coming from. Things are different. We knew that people would react in different ways. We did it anyway. We didn't do it to piss people off, we didn't do it to force our desires on others, we did it because we're trying to save EB and make it a better place.

We welcome well reasoned criticism and suggestions. We can work with that. We can't necessarily follow through with all of it and we definitely won't please everybody. The last thing we want is to send away the userbase we value so much though.

Work with us, interact with us, be patient with us. Remember that things are going to progress and change. The EB of today is not the EB of tomorrow because we're going to keep improving. Something people have been complaining hasn't been the case for a long time. Ultimately try not to get yourselves too worked up and try not to make us want to not bother. :lol:
Thank you. Keep up the good work.
Hear Hear, Doug. I thought EB was dying in late 2018. I think this is the day EB is re-born. Having been in the software business for 40+ years, I understand this is a painstaking process and since this is an open forum, I kind of see us as the beta testers. Yes, it needs to be responsive for all form factors; and be nice to have a familiar look and feel; but I think this is a good start. Changing engines on a 777 in-flight is tough. Hope most beaners will be patient and continue to provide the EB team constructive feedback.

Thanks to the team for working hard to keep this community alive. :clap:

Looks like it makes ya choose parameters now such as "message text only", or "topic titles" , etc. if ya want any results to be returned. Not sure if that's part of the "new PHPBB3" or just an anomaly caused by the upgrade.

That is definitely not normal PHPBB3
