Ack! This really threw me for a loop when I logged on. I'm glad it's not permanent the white is kind of hurting my eyes...

The old layout is so much better, looking forward for it to change back.

took the words right out of my mouth. its hard to make posts when itsd light orange on white.  :P

The layout isn't done, and I'm working on getting this annoying white background in the posting box to be changed. Honestly though, other than that, there isn't much else that is all that different.

Is there something at the top of the screen that tells me how many personal messages I have like the last format...or, do I have to click on my messages to find that out all the time now?

I use IE and Firefox, and with Firefox, the new coloring is awful. There's this ugly, light muddy-gray color instead of the darker blue to differentiate posts in a thread (one after another) and in the listing of threads within sections, and even this page is gray (at least the reply box is...not the text box within the reply box). It makes the yellow-orange text not stand out so well...making it very hard to read.

Is this something that can/will be adjusted?

IE looks great so far.

Also, may I suggest having a link to the main Jedidefender.com page on the top and bottom of every page in the forums. It's just easier to snap up and go to the main page on a moment's notice.

In addition, I would prefer larger text links for the JediDefender.com Forums > Community > Site Feedback, Suggestions, and Help > Post reply ( Re: Its.....SO WHITE! ) heirarchy at the top of the pages. Just easier to get to.

I'm not sure if it's possible to modify the colours between the 2 browsers, but here's the difference:

Internet Explorer


Firefox



Besides that, I've gotta say I really like the update.  8)

Well, that sucks.

I'll wait to bitch about the stupidity of the browser when I figure out which one is causing the problem. I only tested in IE. Thanks for bringing it up.

While I like the new layout, I'm not sure I like having the "Total time logged in" bar so prominently displayed though.  I'll never hear the end of it if the hubby sees how much time is spent here. ;)

13 days, 21 hours, and 5 minutes. Jeez. I'm not sure I like it either...I really don't need reminding that I could have spent 13 days of my life doing other things.
