The pop-out forum viewer also seems to be playing nicely now as well.

Hooray!

Thinking of this problem last night must have sent me back to 1985 - I had a dream about one of my college computer science courses :-k

But the fact that it's working on IE now isn't an excuse for all those people who are still using IE not to upgrade to Firefox or Chrome! :D :)
But for now we are young, let us lay in the sun and count every beautiful thing we can see.

Bill, for my 0.000002c worth, I feel the new look has taken away the distinctive appearance of 14ers.com and has made it look like many of the other websites. It also takes some getting usd to. Sorry, but figured you'd like to have all the opinions, and honest ones.


Edit: I can now see your posts, whereas they were not visible last night.

Bill thanks for continuing to try and make 14ers.com better but I agree with Jim on this one.

Bill, first, thanks for continuing to make 14ers a great site. I agree with Jim here too. I also think it is harder to read because things run together. I like the old color scheme in that each post stood out a little more.

Maybe some more colors and larger borders would help this.

I agree with the last three guys...but whatevs.

LOVE that the lists are less prominent.

Hi Bill,

When you changed the forum to the new layout last night, I opted to keep the old version (ProSilver?) because I was more used to it. I went to log onto my account this morning, and while I could navigate the entire 14ers website, I couldn't get into the forum. I'm getting a message that says there is a ProSilver error.

I am posting this through an old account I used to use before I moved to Colorado. Would you be able to go into my current account (RJansen77), and change my forum settings from ProSilver to the new version? I would, but like I said I can't access the forum, and thus I don't think I can change my preferences.

Thanks so much for your help!

Bill, the new layout makes it look slick. I feel the TR section would look fantastic with this interface. However, the only issue I have is that individual posts are not demarcated well, the borders are all too light for any use and the demarcation between the signatures and the posts are very faded too. This makes the whole page looks like a bunch of lines thrown together.

I can get used to it, but just putting it out there.
