I am opening this thread so member can throw in their requests in to one thread.

We will look at every request and try and sort out the forums look.

I don't want to see comments like "i dont like it" because thats not helping me and every forum upgrade i have done over 9 years has always upset a few. We cannot please everyone and most people get used to it in a jiffy.

What i would like to see is a really positive comment like:

"make the fonts bigger in the text area steve"
"its too bright, can we tone it down slightly"

And so on. I will then try and fix some things. I cannot promise everything but will try and do my best.

Also one last thing, where would you all like to see the latest posts link? please add that below your request, as this is one common thing everyone misses :)

cheers

I have one small suggestion:
Would it be possible to move the google search bar down from the banner to the blue bar which says home, forums, photos, members, feedback? Apart from that, loving the new look :D

Cheers

The "Latest Posts" button is hidden behind the "Facebook" and "Twitter" icons, is this just my settings or something for everyone?

Well done Steve, looking cracking

Got a couple of problems/requests.

iphone cannot load the "home" page of the forum which i find odd. It works if i go to www.fordownersclub.com/forums but not if i go to www.fordownersclub.com.

And i like the carbon effect at the top, any chance of making the whole site the same colour?

We have already come across the iphone issue and have a ticket open with support at IPB, Thats something we want fixed for sure.

when you say the whole site, which parts did you have in mind?

Maybe try changing the bits what are blue to the carbon effect like at the top. See what it looks like on your template before publishing it online?

IE 8 too conceals the Latest Posts button...And is it possible to reduce the length of blank spaces - like you can in Word as if arranging paragraphs?

I am also running IE8. It shows the forum 100% correct for me, maybe your settings need changing?
