I still wonder if there isn't some option that would improve things for many folks..i.e turn the sidebar into a top bar?  Minimize the author information but provide a clickable button for more details?  other options?  (WH)

The side bar displaying member information seems nicely lay'd out and fairly compact.  I fear making it smaller might make matters worse.  But that is hard to anticipate.

I've noticed that quite a bit of screen real estate is grabbed by the left margin.  I do not recall it being quite that extensive in the former layout.  Generally seeing limited problems in navigating the new blog, although the [Preview] function does not work for me.  But, for what we're paying for, I can't complain too much.

First, we just wanted to say thanks to everyone for their patience during the software upgrade and also for the valuable feedback.   tymote

Also, thank you for helping and supporting each other when possible.  It's likely that many of the seasoned members on the board are able to answer some forum related questions better than we can.

The current default theme seems to be the major complaint.  This theme was chosen as the default as it appeared to be the most popular based on the modern features it has. Specifically, that it has a responsive design and tries to move things around to fit different form factors (Desktop, Tablet, Mobile)  However, it seems there are some "in-between" screen sizes that just don't look right. (profile info moved above but not centered, etc.)

If you will notice, there is a new post under General Discussion "How to change your PC Cruiser Forum Theme".  We are installing these themes as-is from the publishers (not making modifications) and we may add more in the future (and will make an announcement when we do). 

Also, we think we have the issues fixed with the custom profile fields. (certain models not available, etc.)   

Please let us know if you have any other issues. 

Thanks!

I am enjoying the dark green environment.

It seems the white space (or green space in my settings) is resolved.

Thank You Phoenix RV Web!

Same here. It also jumps me to the unread entries. It took me a few to find how to get back one level but I finally found it at the bottom of the page instead of the top like it used to be. It makes sense since that's where you are when you finish that topic. My aging brain just has to get used to it and stop automatically hitting " go up".

Plus, I love Green Man. I have him on one of my hippie rags.

I happen to like the "Curve" option: white on black or white on grey. It also eliminates all the extra white space for me.  2o2

My one request:  please, please make it easier to post photos.  Many of us want to send or receive info on everything from problems to decor.  The old, cumbersome process virtually ensures that no one is going to try to post a photo.

It seems fairly easy to post photo's, both web-hosted or from your computer. (I use chrome, other browsers may differ)

For a web-hosted picture, like this one of Hyptnotoad, I do this:
 
1) find the picture you want to use
2) right click and select 'open image in new tab'
3) copy the address in the resulting tab, in this case it is  http://www.sherv.net/cm/emo/futurama/hypnotoad-smiley-emoticon.gif
4) in the 'buttons' above the text box, select the 'image' button -
5) between the {img} and {/img} insert the address you got before.
6)

To upload a picture from your computer, first make sure it is less than 240kb in size. Use a free online resizer if it is too big.
1) Below where it says 'Attachments and other options'  in blue, click on it. 'Attach' and 'choose file' will appear.
2) Click 'choose file'. A window will open, and you can navigate to your picture.
3) choose the pic you want, then 'open'. This will return you to the composition page, and next to 'Choose file'  you will now see the name of the picture you selected.
4) to add more pics from the computer, click on 'more attachments' and repeat steps 2 and 3


I have not yet found out how to put the attachments 'in line' in the post, they always seem to land at the end.

It would appear that web-hosted pics are visible to unregistered guests, but attachments are not.  :'(  Kinda stinks for visitors, as many posts NEED the pictures to be clear.

Hope this helped!

My Attached Photo, hope this brings a smile.   :-D

I believe the reason for being so cumbersome is so that these web pages are loaded much more quickly.  The pictures are links to websites, so our interaction goes quickly.  If the full size picture could be loaded directly into this forum, we would be complaining how slow it is to work the forum.

Also, the cost for having a forum is reduced because it uses so little memory by comparison having every picture and video stored within the forum.
