:) Hello !

• Nice look ! Thanks ! Some features are more convenient, while some are less than before…
- We miss still a font-face change drop-down list…

- I'll test and try to get used to that new look !

Note :
The highlighting of the sections when the mouse hovers them works with Opera but not with IE-6¦Maxthon… :?

I found the old look MUCH more easy on the eye. Especially when entering the forum overview and which forum/thread got new posts. Sorry...

Search is not working. It only finds post made after the update. Apparently the search Index needs to be rebuild.

Edit: Forum now supports attachments?

I agree but after a while I think everyone will be able to get use to it.

I'm not comfortable with these search engine bots...

I like the new forum interface ok. Pretty clean, visually.

The mouse-highlighting action is very irritating, though, especially since clicking on a highlighted-post doesn't do anything (you still have to click on the subject, as always).

Is there a way to turn the dynamic highlighting off? It doesn't add function to the forum...

  • Mozilla » Firefox Add-ons: Stylish
    Stylish allows easy management of user styles. User styles empower your browsing experience by letting you fix ugly sites, customize the look of your browser or mail client, or just have fun. With an online repository at userstyles.org, you don't even need to know how to write styles yourself; just a couple clicks and the chosen style is applied. Stylish is to CSS what Greasemonkey is to JavaScript, and unlike other methods of using user styles, most styles take effect immediately.
    userstyles.org: Search results for “prosilver”/“phpbb”/“phpbb3
    userstyles.org is a collection of styles that puts you in control of the appearance of websites and of Mozilla applications. These styles can remove annoying parts of websites, change the colour scheme, streamline your browser, and much more.
