Dont know the feasibility, but either having the section bar that runs horizontally across the forum page for that area change from its current state to a contrasting color to indicate a new post or at the least, change the bubble color and icon to something not similar to the 'read' status icon.

I like the new setup but I find the login a little hard to find. Maybe make it bigger like the link account buttons?


92 GTZ 3.1/auto, no real mods other then a strut bar, I fight hard enough to get it road worthy!

You/we can figure out a LIVE Chat feature?

J-Body Club of Ontario, which is about as dead as a Forum can be, has had it for years.

That may be a Vbulletin board tho not phpbb.

1988gtu I'll have to look into that and see what I can do.

Having trouble understanding what you mean...

In the sections the individual topics have a colored bar between each.. same with the new posts search results or active topics results. Do you mean in the thread itself and have a stronger contrast from post to reply?

Moved the login button from the right to the left as well as put the control panel link to the right... I believe that's how it was on the old theme.

Still unsure of what your talking about 1988GTU May need a screen print with the issue outlined.

Refreshing to see latest posts is a PITA if you step away for a bit.

Used to be easy.

LMK if what was sent added clarity.

Either way, I still am grateful for the new look and the added themes.

Thank you all! Fast action is an understatement regarding the expressed opinions/usability feedback. :beer:

You would always have to refresh the page to see new posts... I don't see how a theme would change that at all...

There is a band that says "View unanswered posts • View unread posts • View new posts • View active topics"

Just click on the View new posts and they show up. I use the view Active Topics link and then the ones with the icons defined below are what I go to view because they are new.

In the forums the red circle is the indicator that there are new posts Image

Vs the normal Image

Yes, however, the eye's have a hard time seeing the transition/change of color and subtle changes that it's only harder to see when on a mobile device. Was seeing if it can have another option or way to notice the changes. I am very aware of the View unanswered posts • View unread posts • View new posts • View active topics areas. Just the fat fingers and poor eyes tend to get frustrated navigating.

Unfortunately they theme is not optimized for mobile, I'll see if there is another theme out there that can be added and is better... Otherwise I recommend using tapatalk like I am right now.

Too bad that "section highlighting" feature couldn't be the new "unread" post/thread indicator.

I would like to see everything moved to the left 10mm then to the right 1cm. Is that possible?

Impossible to do that... the forum is written in American and not Canadian and there is no conversion for that request.










Yes i know 10mm is 1cm... you ass. ;)
