    We have installed a new custom theme for the forum!

    If you prefer the old theme, don't worry--we still have those available to you.

    Down in the lower left corner of the forum, you will find the link with the theme name ("Classic :: A&M Corner White" is shown here):


    When you click this, you get an overlay with all of the theme choices in it:


    The Classic themes are the original themes that were based on the default theme for our forum software.

    The new theme is a "Flat" theme, of which we have a couple of color variations, including a dark theme. While some of the links have been replaced with icons, nothing has moved! Everything is in the came place where you left it. In the mobile view, a few things may have shifted around, but they are accessible via menu icons (such as the three horizontal bars,
    as in this example):


    Note that you can also choose a theme from "Preferences" in your user menu:


    ...which opens this:


    Your style is saved with your profile, so that it will appear no matter which computer you open the forum on. Note that if you have never chosen a specific style, your preferences will show the first choice of "Use default style," which is the style non-member visitors see when they visit the site.

    If you have any questions about the new theme, feel free to ask them below. Thanks!
  2. Looks great. It's always nice to have more choices for visual themes. I like the A&M Flat Tan so far.

    I like the new one. Easy on the eyes and more readable. Thanks, Rudy! The only thing missing is the preview of the most recent post per forum. Now I have to open the individual forum to see it. A small price.

    Agreed on the visibility. MUCH easier to read.
