All working well for me, love the new look/layout
Well done ABR :mrgreen:
"The trails of the world be countless, and most of the trails be tried.

You tread on the heels of many, till you come where the ways divide.

And one lies safe in the sunlight, and the other is dreary and wan, Yet you look aslant at the Lone Trail, and the Lone Trail lures you on....

....Bid good-bye to sweetheart, bid goodbye to friend, The Lone Trail, the Lone Trail, follow to the end.

Tarry not, and fear not, chosen of the true;

Lover of the Lone Trail, The Lone Trail waits for you"

Could the number of threads shown when the "recent" tab is selected be increased? I have that page saved in bookmarks and it used to have a full page come up but now it's only a few threads. Or maybe "move to next page" buttons at the bottom of the page as well as the top? Currently you scan the threads then have to go back up the top of the page to move to next page. Thanks.

Is there a different skin option this one is pants!
Care to elaborate on why it's pants? All feedback is welcome
The theme is too light in colour, as said above there's no definition between the sections, the lines are to thin, can you at least get the dev's or whoever did it to add the option of a skin like most other forums, seriously it's that bad i'm finding i'm less likely to spend little more than i need to browsing a couple of recent topics before i end up logging off.
And whats with the page/sheet icon thingys next to each post what are they about? different ones but no idea what the actual difference is and again not really stand out graphics to make it easy to differentiate
FINALLY, managed to login, 4 different passwords added to the challenge :-)

Gotta agree with all those commenting on the contrast and definition on a PC screen. Not that good IMO and the ability to alter the font contrast/colours and layout would be hugely appreciated, especially for these old eyes...

Barclays had a love affair with the same horrible pale/pastel blues and poor font shading that were a bloody nightmare to read, I am not saying I made a difference, but I added my voice on every opportunity to request a change. It's better now, but still poor in readability.

See the difference!!! ;-)

I managed to log in a couple of days ago and thought the improvement was very welcome. A few tweaks here and there and it'll be a good un!

Very well done to all involved.

I've just logged in via mobile and the site seems more geared up for that, it looks great and seems to be more proportioned in this form. The desktop version has a lot of free space around everything......ie the boxes separating the sections could be tighter.

Again tweak away until it looks and feels right.

Thanks!

All logged in now with the assistance of Alun.

Found that although the remember me tab is ticked, it won't keep me logged in. So have to log in every visit.

Thanks for the site update guys. It is appreciated.

For feedback- and not a real complaint:

I agree with some of the above comments about the page being too white and sort of "in your face" if you know what I mean.
It took me a while to figure out what others meant by the grey lines as I could not see them at all at first. Maybe they could be contrast more with the main page so we can see better definition between post etc.

Thanks again, Ray

Sorry if these have been posted before but.....

I am having to log back in every time, even after posting a reply and I have remember me ticked.
Having posted a reply, I can't go back to 'Recent Posts'
I always used 'recents Posts' as my bookmark and just had that as my access. I have to say I don't really like the current forum top page.
I haven't worked out how to post pics yet but probably haven't looked properly.
A bit less white might be easier on my ageing eyes but it's ok enough.

Not meant to be a long gripe, sorry.

Edit...Found new posts in quick links :D :D

Edit again.....found photos but seems a bit long winded. I thought the picture logo at the top was for a photo but obviously not.
Add a gripe....some of the 'buttons' are a bit tiny for clumsy fingers.
