    :oops::)Think it has been changed more for necessity than the sake of it, yesterday I fiddled around with it off and on, by looking at different things and I am now getting the feel of it, yes it's different but as Jim says there is a lot of tweaks to do, I did like the old smileys but the new ones are being tweaked, guess it's a matter of getting the old brain cells working.

    Anything to keep mine going is good.

    It seems that (likes) on posts don`t seem to show who sent a like, just some people liked it.
    I like to know who agrees with me :LOL:
    EDIT- fixed now , someones pushing buttons some where:D

    I'm not a fan at the moment. With the old one I could see all the latest posts in the 3 sections on one page.
    Now there are a lot more sections & it seems I have to go to each one to see if there's anything new, or is there an easy way?

    That's better, a new tab has appeared at the top right (Latest Posts) looks more like the old site. Brill.

    We imported the likes from the previous system. To make the process quicker we didn't build the likes index during import. What this means is that the like will show as just a number until someone else likes that post. At which point that posts likes will be indexed and the names will then show. For new likes the name will show immediately.

    There is now two ways to view old posts.
    1. Click on "Latest Posts" on the main menu. This will show the latest posts in sections very similar to the old forum.
    2. Hover over the forum menu and when the drop down appears click on "New Posts" this will show all posts in date order since you last visited.
    Please note that if you are already in the forums area then the drop down is expanded already and you will see the option on the second menu directly below the top one.
