    I too do not like white backgrounds but others do! So I just style pages myself. Doing so causes some issues particularly with background images but still ... :

    I don't understand this issue. Yes there's no max-width for the forums, but there wasn't in the old forum either.

    Probably a stupid question, particularly as I had access to the staging forum where search was working, but I never thought to test it out: where's the "find all my posts" button gone? Or will it reappear when the forum search does? Cheers.

    Kudos on the upgrade, incidentally.

    When I logged out earlier I couldn't see any search options, when I log back in I see them all - should all come back for you when we turn search on for everyone.

    One of the niggles, which no one has yet pointed out: on the first page, every forum name, apart from the last in each section, ends with a comma.

    We had seen it thanks. As far as we can see it's an unsupported plugin, we think we've got a replacement - but it needs to be verified by IS.

    There are more plugins that we need to look at - it is entirely possible that we will deal with them all at the same time.

    Congratulations on the move!
    It looks a lot smoother now than before, though my only complaint would be regarding the way the "posts" are presented.
    I kind of preferred the old look. (With the usernames being on the left of the post instead of above) The new one looks more like reading through an endless A4 page.

    You know you now have the choice? See the OP for details.

    Please do not PM me about your forum account unless you have been asked to. The correct place to contact an admin about your account is here.

    where's the "find all my posts" button gone?
    It's under "Quick Links" top left of forum header.

    Hmm, that let me spot another niggle. The Quick Links menu has gaps, through which the underlying items show. See the screen-shot.

    Believe that is an unintended consequence of changing the header colour - thanks, we'd noticed that a short while ago.
