What has happened to the site now?

The people who provide the Web forum were bought by another company and they phased out the older design, migrating the forum to their new style. I did try to hold it off as long as possible as I was worried it may lose what's been posted here but they suddenly did it anyway. Luckily nothing seems to have gone.

Anybody tried the (new) search function? It doesn't seem to work. I couldn't find what I knew was there (and correctly found via Google-search).
Some of the colours are strang, don't you think?

Any way of changing the look of the site? The colours are making my eyes bleed!

Yes. That's why I wrote they are "strang". Erm, that should have been "strange" in my post above. Especially the orang. :ermm:

It's taking some adjustment, but I've figured out that when there is a piece of paper sticking out of a folder, there is an unread post. That simplifies things.

Like a few Beatles' LP jackets the colour scheme design is in need of some help. Otherwise - OK!

As it's a free board, their templates for colour change are zero. There is a customisation option but I'm apprehensive in case I mess something up and we lose everything.

Agreed Mike. We'll adjust to the weird colors soon enough, and it would be really bad if all the old threads vanished.

thks for that - that is helpful, i'm slowly getting used to it all, and the search engine hasn't worked for years for many of us anyway !!!

it is definitely a better look - aside from the colours lol !!

and i don't have to shrink the pages to zero to see all of a posted photo anymore !!

Does anyone know if the PMs work as usual? I dropped the Admiral a note asking him to remove spam (in the off topic area) if that's possible. I don't know if he got it???

Sorry for the delay. I have deleted these. Mike advised me some time ago to be careful with these. I think there may have been some virus risk.

One time with the spam posts I opened it up and got a virus warning flash up on my comp. Luckily Avast caught it immediately. But through the many years this forum has been up this is the only time (to my knowledge) this has happened.
