    Smile Testing a new forum theme

    We're testing out a new design for the forum and I would like to hear your thoughts about it.

    You need to select it before you will be able to see the new forum design. To do this, go to the bottom of the page and select UsingEnglish.com New from the dropdown box at the bottom-left of the page.

    Do you like it? Is it better than the old design? Have you found problems with the new design?

    Let me know by posting any thoughts and comments you have about it here.

    Thanks!

    Re: Testing a new forum theme

    I like the old one better but that's probably because I don't like changes. I always find it hard to find anything after them.

    But I'm posting mainly because of a problem that I have in both designs. I don't see the menu that used to be at the right of the page (with "subscribed threads" and "new threads" links). It was very useful. Was it removed when the changes were introduced?

    You can find Subscribed Threads under User CP and also My Posts and Quick Links. I don't know what happened to Forum Stats.

    Re: Testing a new forum theme

    Those items that used to be in the left menu are in the new UE Tools menu on the right of the main forum menu bar. The left menu has been temporarily removed whilst testing is happening on the new forum design. This gives more space and emphasis to the posts and content, but also retains the navigation options.

    Re: Testing a new forum theme

    The new theme is way awesome- except for the menu page resulotion.
    & since you're updating the theme, how about enabling embed codes?

    Re: Testing a new forum theme

    I like the look of the new, but am having a hard time navigating. Where is the plain old "my posts" -- without having to have subscribed to the threads?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: Testing a new forum theme

    The 'My Posts' menu is back. Thanks for spotting that it had been missed.

    @birdeen's call

    I think the links you wanted are also in the My Posts menu now. Does that solve the problem for you?
