Yep, this is basically how the forum appeared since I joined till "recently". I actually hated the width change because I was using a 4:3 monitor and never had that side bar, nor the spaces. xD

Yea I like being able to use all of my monitor. I understand it will take some time to get the kinks out though. Just kinda like the older style better overall myself.

Edit: Seems most of the smileys are broke including some troll icons.

I think the layout should be widened. I have a 32 in monitor and it looks really funny.

Folks, please be a bit patient. In time the right column will be configurable and there will be some other layout options. For tonight we thought it was most important to get the board turned back on. We'll pick away at the rest over the next few days

Thanks, Janet. I had wanted to say the same thing but my phone was not cooperating at work (or maybe that was operator failure...).

This software change actually seems to have gone really well. It was worse when we upgraded to 4.x. And, for the old-timers, they need to think back to when TF jumped from 2.3 to 3.5 or so... now THAT was a mess.

Give things some time and it will all get sorted. This was a huge undertaking and I appreciate the effort that has already gone into it.

Oh wait never mind I just found them. It appears my browser didn't load the page properly before.

Also the smilies eg: don't work as you can see.

I believe the thread subscriptions should now be back, though you may have lost some you made yesterday.

I fixed those broken smilies..

I am not on skin patrol (and you wouldn't want that) so that will have to wait until later today.

Yay looks so much better with it off .

I did notice just now though, when you resize the message box when creating a post, it can extend over the borders onto the main background.

Thanks for the note about that Mak! Looks so much better with the sidebar off.

One thing I've noticed, the shortcuts to add Bold or Italics tags don't work any more. If you could get around to adding those back that would be nice, I used them often :P
