A new default theme has been installed, I have also installed a PayPal Donation module found in the top right corner menu.

Before you ask:

Donations: Is to help me out paying the cost of running this page and is voluntarily. I have payed all the costs since 2004 and it should not be too much to ask for a contribution.

Recent posts: Is not on the top of the page in this design (yet).

Dislike the new design?: Click your profile in the top left corner and choose Look and Layout. From here change your theme and choose: SMF Default Theme - Curve.

Read my first post on how to change it back to the old theme.

The new Theme is really nice. But it's too dark for me and it makes it hard to read. So I chose the lighter theme. Thanks for tbe effort.

The new theme is really nice and also prevents the shite you have to go through to avoid headaches  :)

There is only one annoyance that i observed.

When i browse the forum with a tablet (portrait mode) the post date is listed in a separate column so that it leaves less room for the message itself (which is then cramped up to the right side of the screen/table). Dumb thing is that it places the same date at the top of the actual message when turning the tablet into landscape mode.

I do not own a tablet and as such i have not tested how it looks on one. Feel free to send me a PM with screenshots if you want me to have a look at it.

Not sure how it would look on a Tablet, but if you use Zoom in the browser and set it to 90% instead of 100% it will scale down the design and perhaps make it look better for you.

 I will, when i have some time again, go over some of the colors for the forum part to make it a bit easier on the eyes.

I will write an update in this thread once i have.

In that case it would be very difficult to observe  :)

I think i got myself blindfolded when posting a pm. I seem to be unable to attach a picture on the pm editing window (other then linking to an external url).

So instead i've posted here below.

Unfortunately fennec does not allow that for me.

I do have an always user zoom enabled so that it alows me to view a webpage on the size i desire (which is a blessing since most websites/forums have incredible tiny buttons for forward/reverse let alone those sites that believe a human is able to i read a font that is 4 pixels in size because for some unknown reason 4hd full desktop websites scale terrible on a freaking phone - duh  ;D ).

Picture is showing date of the message in the 'middle' column of the table and right alignes the message. I got a landscape screenshot as well (to show it can be viewed correctly) but was not allowed to attach because of size restriction.

In case it matters there seems to be no difference between browser requesting the desktop size webpage vs tablet/phone requested.

thanks in advance for having a look but for me there is no priority (it's only my annoyance) and perhaps it can help the theme designer as well.

Is it me or does the new theme not display attachments (whether embedded or not). It does show when logged in though and the original theme did show at least something while the new theme seems to ignore them at all for me.

I still have problems with the view, I changed the color in my profile but when I translate the page with Google translator I get the Black page back.

Unfortunately, when I look at the page I get headaches and I think that I will no longer attend the forum, thanks to the same
