New look for the New Year

Post by Chris » Sun Dec 30, 2018 10:04 pm

I recently updated the forum software for DAN to the latest version of phpBB. You will definitely notice some changes to the user interface, and you might encounter a few glitches. In the latter case, please let me know either using the Contact link at the bottom of the page or by posting a bug report either in Site Feedback or in this thread.

One thing that you might find confusing is that some of the navigation bar buttons have been moved into a pull-down menu on the far left of the NavBar (see red circle in image below). Others are accessible as quick-links underneath the NavBar (see orange circle). It shouldn't take too long to get used to the layout change, I hope.

Yep. Data is still there but login sessions seem to be broken. Will take a closer look later today. Thanks for flagging this.

Brock, can you try switching to the Elegance style under the Board Preferences for you profile? You're one of only two users (and likely the only active one) using the PBTech style, which I'm surprised was working even with the prior version since it hasn't been touched in years. If you can't stomach the Elegance theme, then I can try to update PBTech, but you won't be able to see some of the user info that other users see. If you'd like me to make the switch for you, just let me know.

Thank you, much better. Didn't know I could change that. Never really thought about it except I never liked the theme but always just put up with it.

Looks great and seems to work well for me.
