    New Posts page acts a little different on XF to what folk will be used to Tone, we added a Recent Posts page if you remember

    I'm sure there's an add-on for it but I think we went this route

    Hello Administrators team.
    I like the new forum so much.
    However, it is better if you redirect old URL of all posts to new corresponding URLs.

    I agree and I'm looking into options, the problem is with this number of posts and threads individual redirects aren't possible.

    Looking good so far Tony and Matt, thanks for all your hard work sorting it out :)

    Something I've noticed that could do with tweaking are the light grey colour you're using for some of the tabs is a bit hard to see for folks with visual impairments especially as it's against a white background. It could do with being made a bit darker or have a darker background so they stand out more.

    Also, and this is a small thing, you haven't got the post count names that we used to have under our forum names on the old site and with that missing that somewhat spoils some of the subtle comments full members had as well :)

    Other question I've got is how do you report a post for Mods attention?

    On the old site there was the dedicated button at the bottom of each post which took you to a report page when you clicked on it. I can't see any feature like that on the new site [​IMG]

    I can see a report buttom at the bottom of each post, is that not showing on yours? I'll have a look into the colouring of the links.

    Nope... I can't see one. All I can see is buttons for either like or reply, nothing that says report.

    Here's a screenshot of what I can see

    It all seems ok so far, after a brief wander through the site this morning. I reckon it'll take a while to get familiar with the details and there's bound to be a few things that pop up but by and large all appears to be well.

    I bet there's a few folk who'll be pleased to get a bit of kip and a few days off, a lot of graft gone into this :)

    Try it now, also I've made the menu text darker, let me know if that's enough.

    Yup... the report button is there now and the text colour is much better as well :)

    I like the new look :)
    However, I cannot seem to locate the "Community Groups" - you know ...the bit that has pages from "Rough Close Meeters", "Clynfyw Meeters" where meet-ups etc are discussed.
    It used to be you clicked on "Community" and it was in a drop down along with "members" and such...

    I am afraid not... the ones where you clicked on "Community" on the bar at the top of the page and a drop box appeared with boxes that included "Groups" and "Members" and other stuff...
    I do not speak "tech talk" so cannot put it clearer I am afraid...

    The groups that members themselves created?

    That would be it!
    I created the Clynfyw Meeters Group:)
