Hi Fishloreans - wow, that was a huge upgrade! Took literally all day today and I'm still rebuilding indexes and tweaking things... Gonna be a long night and weekend. :)

Please post any issues in this thread and I'll try and tackle them as soon as I can. Some things have changed a lot, but much has stayed the same.

Thanks for your patience!
Mike

Looks good @Mike
Are we missing a few icons and minor bits?
I'm seeing lots of little squares on buttons (browser = Chrome)
Is it just the CDNs need to be updated? There's a lot of errors in the console logs...

I think it's like everything it takes time to get used to it, when I upgraded to windows 10 I hated it now I wouldn't go back, so I think it's only fair to give it time and play about with menus, it's so easy not to like new or change but these things need to happen mostly to keep up with times

Could be that its just new. I might like it better when the icons work for me but everything is so black. Or us it just black for me?

Probably like me you'll find theres buttons and menus you wont need and once you break that barrier things will become clearer as you'll just by pass them

Next to things like: report, like, quote, reply, and other links there are little squares but other than that things seem to be working. I'm on Google Chrome on a laptop.

FWIW, the light background is pure white on my screen making the forum unpleasant to read. The dark background the text has the same problem. The blue is the best of the three but still too bright especially in comparison with the other forums I frequent. Also text size is much larger than any other forum I visit. I'm on Safari on a desktop computer. Just my two cents, but thanks for all your work in offering this place to fish enthusiasts. I visit here frequently though mostly lurk.

Very happy we have dark mode now. I do prefer some things about the old Fishlore, the overall look of the older one is what drew me to this site rather than other aquarium forums. More unique and easy on the eye imo. I just need to get used to this I'm sure.

A bit bummed out we lost informative, useful etc. We only have four now, whereas I thought we could have used more. I'm liking most of it so far though. I appreciate the work that must have gone into this.

It's OK...but as someone who suffers extreme migraines, the harshness is a bit heavy going, I'm sorry

If there would be a way to soften it like before with a non-white background with a less sharp type...that would be good please

Sorry :(

I really miss the new/recent post sidebar :(

I also miss being able to hover over the alerts and conversation buttons and get information.

usng Windows 10, firefox, laptop computer

Sadly this one now looks and acts much like all the other forums. I joined this one because it was unique and so easy to use, I am sure I will get used to it in time but sadly it has lost all that made it unique and simple to navigate. :(

I do appreciate all the hard work that went into making this switch but to be perfectly honest I wish it hadn't been done. I am sure others will feel different.

Hey smee82 all the way on the bottom of this page on the left side is a button to change from black to white to blue. All kind of bright but the blue does look a little like the old set up.

I’m on my apple ipad and the only icon to rate a thread I have is just the like button :(. Going to take awhile to figure it out but hey new is new :).

Press and hold over like and you'll get three other options besides like. I preferred the extra options before.
