That shouldn't be too hard, I think. There's already a link back to the Board index right at the bottom - I should be able to extend that to the full breadcrumb trail.

In small text, there is a

link under the "Post Reply" button at the bottom, but it took me a while to notice, and the full breadcrumb trail would be better for nested forum cases.

Round forum icons! We have round forum icons wheee!

...Where'd you find them? Or did you make them? I would have thought you'd use the old ones.

They're from the current default theme for phpBB v3.x, so they were already on the server! I just copied them across once I realised.

I'm glad they make you happy!

The "center" commands have been fixed, it seems. My sig fits nicely in the middle like it did before. Thanks!

Using wide layout with randomized banner, and there's a small glitch with the Sahaquiel banner wrapping around.

Both wide themes in fact.

Sorted; I had overwritten one of the wide theme files with the default, and missed the different banner file name when I regenerated it.

You know, if its set up right we could probably just use one style and not need a cropped version.

I'm pretty sure I could use the wide banner in the normal themes right now and it would work; but I've been thinking about other things before checking that out.

Happy to see that our Twitter code still works (very useful for passing on EGF Twitter posts!) but is there a little hack(?) to add the Twitter code button into the post options so folks are aware of it/makes posting easier? Could be next to the spoiler buttons at the end.

Thanks, y'all!

Edit: As an aside, both the site search and the forums are LIGHTNING FAST ever since the upgrade, as far as I can see. Makes things easier for me when I try to share news!

This is incredibly trivial, but is it possible to omit the to-the-minute timestamp portion of the date joined that appears under our avatar to the left of every post? For several of us, it's so long the 'am' or 'pm' scrolls into a second line and that's aesthetically IMO a bit of an eyesore. Besides that the time of day that we first logged in is so inconsequential that it's excessive to display, if the option exists to remove it.

I know it surprised me to see the time of day joined, too! I personally agree that the date joined is more important than time of day--I certainly didn't remember I joined at night!

This place keeps looking more and more like home all the time. I just noticed that usernames are no longer bold by default -- which incidentally makes non-staff Committee members stand out more, contrary to my intention when I chose their group color. :lol: Not that it's a problem, just amusing.

The font on the age and therefore everything else over there looks weird to me but we still don't have a test instance of the old version of the forum up yet.

I still can't see what thread the most recent post in a forum was made in when I'm looking at the board index. That was a feature I particularly liked about the old forums. Any chance it'll be making its way back?

I'll see if it's practical to add it; but I'm also puzzled, because it's not there on a screen capture I did of the old forum index page shortly before the change.
