Don't think it ever behaved that way, did it? When you click from the board index, it will go the first unread post as it did before, but if you're just browsing through normally then it should go to the first page or whichever page you click on.


I always have it on the 'View New Posts' page. I'm sure it did do it before. Can the sidebar search be removed? Also, will the blue thread colour be changed, it looks alittle disjointed with the orange.

Yes, put your mouse over the top right of the sidebar and it will display the cross you click to close it.

Seems a big mess imo. Wheres the 'recent activity' tab that use to be at the bottom of the forums index/page?

I recon the blue should actually be orange. It all looks a but out of place.
The top banner in my opinion would be better orange on white than white on orange.

Yeah all the blue is a bit jarring from the old one, I'll probably get used to it though.

One question does this skin only allow square avatars? Cause as you can probably see mine wasnt originally square and it's now squished.

It's fixed to the left. I quite like the sidebar personally - especially since the search facility has been such a major weakness for IPB for a long time. I may look at moving it to the right-hand side when I get some time (I'm winding down my commitments at Media Spy from today), so that the thread titles go straight down the left..

Hey,where's my Carlton pic gone?

IPB 3.2 merges the "avatar" and "profile picture" functions, so now there's just a single personal photo that doubles for both. Sadly, I think you'll have to choose between your two great loves. ;)

The end of the avatar/profile distinction brings IPB more into line with other forum software packages. Personally I thought having both an avatar and a profile pic was overkill, although I can understand why some might rue the merger.

Seems a big mess imo. Wheres the 'recent activity' tab that use to be at the bottom of the forums index/page?

I'm not sure what you're referring to here.

Certainly a big change, but as per all our previous 'new looks' I'm sure everyone will get used to it in time.

A huge "cheers, bro" to Cyril for his efforts in re-designing the skin not only of our forum, but also the homepage and The Spy Report.

Can we get rid of it altogether, or just have a 'View New Posts' as it appeared before?
Why does IPB make such radical changes to their software that it requires forums to do a total revamp of their skins?

The 'recent activity' tag is now incorporated into the "new content" tab.

Click on that and you'll get the time period options as per the old menu.

Well he's made it quite clear he prefers busty red-heads over Carlton. :tongue:

You think that's bad :blink:

I had three different pics (dunno how) so I've lost more than half my mirror, along with the clock! :ph34r:

The new layout is really good, much cleaner and with the times IMO. Also loving the WYSIWYG editing. Great work!! :thumbsup:

All these comments on the WYSIWYG editing-was I the only one using the Rich Text Editor on the old version?
