I thought this new theme (OrionMobile) looked pretty 2000's. The original (GoMobile theme) definitely looked 90's.  Smile

I did do some research to see if there was more modern looking forum software (e.g. Flarum has a slick interface), but I would just be afraid of a lot of our long-time users hating anything that is too dramatically different from what they are used to.

Also, MyBB is supposed to be coming out with a huge new 2.0 version in the next few months and they are promising that it will be a lot more modern. I am thinking that will be our best bet...

Big updates are exciting. Big new bugs are not. Hopefully they have tested it thoroughly. Smile

For sure. We will wait at least a few months to see how stable the new version is before considering an upgrade.

This is kinda my fault. I noted a bug in the old mobile site (it wouldn't render lists in posts on my mobile devices), and started this little ball rolling. I've been testing it for Steve. I rather like the new layout, myself.

Is that better? I tried making the headings for Important Threads and Normal Threads stand out more.
Looks much, much better now, thank you!

I too noticed that. I felt silly in some of my responses because of it.

If you get stuck in the GoMobile theme on your desktop, go to the User Control Panel and look for that "Board Style" setting to change it to Default.

If you have any feedback or suggestions for the new theme, please let me know.

Thank you!
Hi. The new format looks great. But I don’t see the ‘Last Post’ option in each thread. It was very convenient to just jump to the most recent post, when there were multiple pages. Now, I am having to individually move across each page.

Thank you, Dave! I have looked into adding the Like button to the mobile theme but that's a bit more complicated. I'll keep working on it.

Hi Supermind. From the Thread List, you can click the right-side of the thread title where it shows when the thread was last updated. I have added a little arrow icon there -- hopefully that makes it more intuitive...

I’m getting these weird grey boxes to the side of the Big 3 specific discussion board. It was fine until today. I’ll attach a screenshot. I’m using iOS 11.4

Are you still getting that error? I checked it out on my Android phone and everything seemed to load fine.

It was like that yesterday, but it seems fine now. Not sure if this was just a fluke or what. Seems to be okay now.
