Default How do you like the redesigned website?

It seems to work well. I am able to easily navigate. Blue is my favorite color.

The recent posts bar on the right hand side is a great help. I can see at a glance all the recent post that may be of interest.

I'm guessing this shade of red is the new owners school color; I too prefer the previous blue (but not this shade). Otherwise things are a-ok.

I had it changed to match the trim on our 2310H.

Colors are much better and with the white, white background the print is much easier to read. Somewhere over time a large number of people have forgotten that black print on white is easier on the eyes

We're still teaking the update. You'll find today that your PM boxes have more capacity now. You can also add a profile picture up to 400 x 400 pixels and finally the info that displays on very post (username, avatar pic, location, etc) is now on the left instead of above the post. While this reduces the width of the post text a bit, it substantially reduces scrolling.

You can also update your avatar pic if you like to a new larger size: 100 x 100 pixels. it will be nice to see larger images

Howdy Moderators and Administrators!

Overall I'm pretty happy with the redesign. I probably prefer the blue as well but can live with the red. My only complaint are the ads that are occasionally placed within the actual posts. What's up with that?

I vote for blue too! However, the rest of the site design is excellent! The "recent posts" panel on the right is a huge improvement, and, I like the HiLo pictures at the top.

I like the red, it's the color of my 90 Toyota pickup, my 06 Toyota Tundra, my 07 Suzuki 650 Burgman, and last but not least Judy's 99 Ford Contour.

I really like the color scheme. It gives the page a classy look and I also like the logo and pics at the top. Overall I think it was a great upgrade to a great forum. It looks much more professional now and I think it will help add people who visit the page. Great job!

Thanks for explaining, Janet. My only concern then would be that it may be a turn off for those considering joining the forum as they would them as well but I guess ya gotta pay the bills, huh? That said, I do like the improvements of the redesign. Thank you so much!

I like the change. The red color gives the forum a crisp new look. I was sorta getting tired of the "Sunoco blue" colors. The new layout is really nice also.

"Today's Posts" button isn't working properly, it brings up the search function.

Are there thread results? The todays posts "button" is really just a search for recent content as is the new posts button (they are slightly different searches).

here's what I see:

It should bring up all of today's and yesterdays posts.
That's how it used to work and that's how it works on other forums such as the Forest River forum.

That's how it's working for me... Can you try logging out and then logging in again or using a private browser tab and then logging in again?
