Hello all, Marguerite here.

With many thanks to Matt Dovey, the new forum look is now live! We hope you like the fresh coat of pixels.

For those who would prefer the older display styles, a short tutorial follows:

1. Head into ‘Look & Layout’ (see picture "Forum1.png" below)

2. Under ‘Current Theme’ click the ‘(change)’ link (see picture "Forum2.png" below)

3. Make your selection. ("SMF Default Theme - Curve" returns the previous theme) (see picture "Forum3.png" below)

I'll admit when I first hit the forum after the update I was confused and thought I hit a wrong bookmark by mistake.

But I'm really diggin the redesign! Great job Matt!

I'd like to hear my options, so I could weigh them, what do you say?
Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?

Cheers!

Anyone spotted any weirdness? Anything inconsistent or broken? There's a lot of forum to cover, I expect I missed something.

How are the font sizes for people? You can always scale a webpage up by holding down Ctrl and scrolling your mousewheel (or tapping +), but if everything is too small for everyone (or if a particular type of text is too small), I can fix that in the styles if y'all let me know. It's more important that it's useable than it's pretty (though if I can manage both...)

I mentioned something in the mod forum about a control missing -- PM me if you want more insight on that.

The updated didn't include a secure URL... https://forum.escapeartists.net.... That's unfortunate. I won't be sharing my banking information on this server; however, I like keeping my stream to-and-from EA encrypted and for EA-eyes only.

Is SSL still an option for this domain?
