it's not that traumatic . . . yes, needs tweeking, but jeeze, calm down a little. It'll all be back to something resembling normal soon.

thanks EB tech team and BOD, this is a step towards a better site and I can deal with the "shock" of change for a bit.

I purchased the Metro theme for PHPBB... if you want a copy, get at me... I think it's one of the best themes going that also has what people liked about classic phpbb themes.

Is there a way to look at the desktop version on my phone? Or at least shrink it in some way?

I do approximately 99% of this on my phone these days, and the new format is massive.

Thanks!

One thing I immediately miss is a link directly to the main EB page. I also used the heck out of the "view new posts" quick link as opposed to having to use a pull-down (via Quick Links).

Everything else is serviceable. No major complaints.

Don't mind the new forum. But would like a link to get back to the main page or mypage.

Feel like this would be a good time to have an announcement center plug in that can be used... since everyone seems to be saying the things and some of them have already been addressed by mods/admins.

Links will be restored later on. Bear with us.

Looks good. We'll have a look at it and some other options.

We're also considering giving users the option of a couple of themes.

Need the View your posts / View new posts links. Otherwise this is a good way forward. Will take some getting used to, but I like it.
try top left under the 'quick links' drop down
Boom. Thank you! :pint:

I don't hate it. There's a lot that just isn't working yet so it's tough to form a complete opinion. My biggest gripe at the moment is that each individual post in the forum takes up way too much space. It looks like someone took a native iPhone app and blew it up to iPad proportions. It's all just... a lot.

Other than that I'll wait to see how the full site turns out. Good job everyone.

Runs smooth. Thanks for the work and please don't stop fixing the site due to a couple loud squeaky wheels.

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 ...
