The forum software was getting too old, so i`ve upgraded it to the newest version.

Hope everyone will like the new layout too  ;D

At least the text is back to the left side  ;D. Maybe you could do with a slightly bigger letter type.

Not sure, I thought it was broken at first...

Too much white space below the top banner.

But well done for updating the S/W without any perceived downtime.

Yes, it did go quite fast and smooth this time.
(I tested if on a backup, just to be sure it went ok this time ;D )

Had to change quite a lot because of the mods we're running.
Will take a look to get the font size a bit bigger, but wil take quite some work.
(As we now are multilanguage.... :angel:)

Well done Olaf looks good , I thought the same as TT at first, what's gone wrong lol.

 I find the home page is ok but when I go to a topic it is compressed to the left and I have to zoom in. I will take a screenshot and show you in a mo.

Looks like an apple thing(they don`t care about any standards lol..)
Works fine on my laptop, Samsung phone and no-name tablet.

I`ve changed the font size , so the text is a bit bigger.
Hope it`s not too big now :mellow:

Poxy Apple  :rolleyes: " they don't care about any standards " seems to keep popping up in my
life  :'(

It was fine on the homepage but only on the topic pages.

I had a play and turned out the quick reply bar at the bottom was still the full width, so I have turned it off in my settings and it has sorted it out  ;D

Text size is fine for me, cheers Olaf  :angel:

I originally changed the font size because it looked a bit too tiny.
I made it a bit smaller now again(still bigger than the default size..)

Looks like the search engines like the new layout too  ;D
