FF Software Upgrade Discussion

Love it, hate it, had no idea it even changed ... discuss the latest FF software upgrade here!

And since I'm sure people are going to be asking about this ... the main reason the upgrade took so long was due to unanticipated complications with all the board themes. We did the best we could to get them up again, but there are a few problems with certain themes that will be fixed in the near future.

Ive been having problems with it loading, and I keep getting messages about the server being too busy. I like the look though, but it seems the older version was easier to access.

You should have an Edit Avatar option in your User CP.

Please be patient, the site just went back online, there'll be lots of traffic all of a sudden slowing things down.

Also, with new software, it takes some time to figure out the optimal settings to get the best performance.

A little slow

but we just have to be patient.

Well, the one thing I don't like is how the main pages are on the left and on the right bar is advertising, but I realize F4F has to pay its bills too. So I'll get used to it. I'm just happy I finally fixed the clock to my time zone.


But it looks nice.

None of my stuff that I used is in the same spot as it was before. I'll have to learn totally new navigation tricks and stuff. Oh well, I'll get used to it.

Four questions.
1) Are the smilies on the side random? Just curious.
2) What is the code now for new posts on a board and stuff? On the old version it was the little red thing for a unread post, what is it now? What's the bolded thread title name mean? Is there somewhere where I can look all of this up?
3) Are the currently viewing users and moderators listed in alphabetical order now?
4) Are all of the old thread links still going to work? For exmaple, linking back to the last thread of the same topic- will those links still go through?

The Liv Tyler board is all out of whack. The columns are all messed up .. I'm sure you guys know that but I just wanted to make sure.

I don't like the new look But I never do when FF changes it's layout...I'll get use to it though. In a few days I won't remeber what it use to look like!
I like how the smilies are on the right when you reply.
It's a bit odd having the ad on the right and everything aligned to the left.
Ah well...I don't care as long as I can keep coming here.

I love it. It has this old school vibe that fits just fine with me.
