With the old forum when you were looking at unread since last visit there was a little icon to tell you which topics you had responded in. Does this still exist?

It's now a star if you've responded in that thread instead of circle

Some older threads have the incorrect colour fill for the text boxes @Tait

Really need to sort out the old photos on old threads or there is a hell of a lot of great stuff that will be ruined without the photos

Also, @Tait have you looked at how much memory will be required to sustain the uncompressed photos that now get uploaded to the forum?

I would second that re the photos , especially of the restoration threads that are a great source of info . I think quite a few people have asked as well.

I really feel for Tait working night shifts, day shifts and whatever else to help us all out and in return is facing a torrent of abuse and complaints just because folk can't stand change. I have the faith that given time normal service will be resumed. Just put up with for the time being, he's working on it and have faith.

It's my biggest focus atm along with old Avatars. It's tricky because an issue happened in the conversion but I do have the old data to go back and extract still.

@grumpydaddy, @MildredM, @Dylan, @coffeechap, @Rhys, @Glenn and all. Please, can you try out the "Premium Roast" theme as an option in the footer? So far it's the best I can satisfy the feedback whilst keeping the site easy enough to maintain. It's using a premium theme I've used before and it's well supported and I've added a few nice tweaks.

I'll look forward to your feedback. If it gets the thumbs up from everyone (or mostly, I'll make it default). Once we're all good with it, it would make my job a lot easier to just stick to one for now. Hoping you like the "Premium Roast".

Tried it - sorry to say I am struggling with it. I’ve always had bother with white type on black! I much prefer the dark roast theme myself :)

Just tried it & while it's much much better than the light roast theme, I prefer the dark roast one too.

 

Keep up the good work @tait, iit's much appreciated. 👍

I really do like the new look forum but after an hour with the premium roast skin I’ve given up. It must be me and my eyes, the white print jumps about on the black background! Back to the Dark roast now, it is clear as a bell :)

Edit to add: the white adverts jar in between the black too.

I will be using the Premium Roast theme.

We all make assumptions about how easy it should be to just switch I'm sure so thanks for this.

If it remained available, I am sure it would benefit those using battery devices which have LED OR AMOLED screens in that it would not drain the battery as much.

@MildredM , @Dylan, @coffeechap, @Rhys, @GlennMay I ask how you get on with the white on grey as seen in the border of each post?

Just looked at your signature in premium & the yellow text on black works well.

I'm going to have a play. If I can make that one work it's easier than Dark Roast to keep up long term. I'll look into versions of it.

You have Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome MildredM. It makes black on white, or white on black difficult and sometimes painful to read. Tait, If you must choose one theme Dark Roast is much kinder on the eyes for all of us and has the added benefit of being coffee related.

Got what may be a warning when trying to thanks you (in a mobile signal blackspot) & can't make out what it's saying.

Shouldn't a case of choosing. Just tweaking Premium hopefully until it works for everyone.

This is problem with Dark Roast... Every little detail needs custom code to change it. Premium Roast won't have those if I can get the colours right.

aah, well let's focus on a quick-and-easy win in the first place!
one more dark roast theme oddity: when pasting text (e.g. a hyperlink) it'll also turn white and cannot be read in the editor.

 

In premium roast theme, I'm missing those buttons in top right corner (most importantly to me, the notifications bell). Other than that it's really nice so far! Also, text looks more like light grey to me than white. Good and clear! thx @Tait
