The people who provide the Web forum were bought by another company and they phased out the older design, migrating the forum to their new style. I did try to hold it off as long as possible as I was worried it may lose what's been posted here but they suddenly did it anyway. Luckily nothing seems to have gone.

Anybody tried the (new) search function? It doesn't seem to work. I couldn't find what I knew was there (and correctly found via Google-search).
Some of the colours are strang, don't you think?

Any way of changing the look of the site? The colours are making my eyes bleed!

AH
There's a fine line between uninhibited and asleep!

Yes. That's why I wrote they are "strang". Erm, that should have been "strange" in my post above. Especially the orang. :ermm:

It's taking some adjustment, but I've figured out that when there is a piece of paper sticking out of a folder, there is an unread post. That simplifies things.

Like a few Beatles' LP jackets the colour scheme design is in need of some help. Otherwise - OK!

As it's a free board, their templates for colour change are zero. There is a customisation option but I'm apprehensive in case I mess something up and we lose everything.

Agreed Mike. We'll adjust to the weird colors soon enough, and it would be really bad if all the old threads vanished.

thks for that - that is helpful, i'm slowly getting used to it all, and the search engine hasn't worked for years for many of us anyway !!!

it is definitely a better look - aside from the colours lol !!

and i don't have to shrink the pages to zero to see all of a posted photo anymore !!
