I changed it from the default style to this theme that's just called "dark" which seems ok for now while we look around.
There is one new tab for "Posts" and another new tab right next to it for "Latest Activity". It looks like to me that the default for the upgrade is oldest first, whereas before members who were logged in got most recent first -- based on the assumption that they had already read the older posts. Unregistered lurkers were always seeing the oldest first because that was the default for them. I think it is something Chris or I can "fix" but I'm not touching anything until Chris is finished his own tweaks with the conversion.There seems to be a new tab for "latest activity" -- when I clicked that it put the most recent first
I hate to be a negative Nellie, but I don't like this upgrade. It's ugly, confusing and it's difficult to navigate. I suppose a person can get used to anything, but right know it's a pain in the neck. Perhaps when the wrinkles are ironed out it'll be better. I'm not sure why it had to be changed.
I agree 100%, and I would give 10-1 odds that many other long time members feel the same, but are too polite to say so. Sorry.CK,
Appreciate your talent and willingness to maintain this site. I find these changes to dark for my old eyes. I don't see that it is readily apparent when first looking at the forum that I can tell what threads have new posts. I am not liking too much the emoji changes, nor the preview button and what to do after the preview to get back to posting if one doesn't like the preview. Sorry, but I liked it lighter and brighter, and can't call this an unquestioned improvement.
If we ever take a vote, I would go lighter and brighter.:sorry
