Checking out the nifty new board. :)

This is the default layout for phpBB version 3.1. I decided to give 3.1 a whirl before upgrading to 3.2.

I have to admit - it doesn't look bad!!

I do want to see what other styles are available. I am going to set up a poll to see which style you guys like better - this one or the old one.

After a few days, once the "new car" smell wears off - I suspect my personal preference will be with the old "subsilver" style that I've used for the past 12 or 13 years. :)

Posting speed still seems a bit slow.

Maybe you can set it up so people can select their own theme/look

The responsive nature of the theme works well (re-sizing based on device).

Looks good on a phone, but I don't like desktop view placing the message on the left and poster on the right....that feels really backwards. I think I like to know whose post I'm reading before reading it as opposed to the other way around.

Otherwise looks good.

PS - as far as the "other" responsiveness (response time)....was just as slow for me...took almost 10 seconds to post.

Now I'm running php version 3.2....

Let's see how well (or not) this one works.

I don't get paid so I have mixed feelings... but in principle at 45-50 hours a week average I definitely feel the need for a freak snowstorm...

It should work. I was able to both read the forum and start a new post using my "MWtest" account, which has the same privileges as all other users.

I literally fixed the settings less than five minutes ago, so if you haven't tried it since 2:50p ET on 2-25-17, please try again.
