This is a 'vanilla version' the site crashed on Friday night.   It was acting really weird then.

it's not revamped, it's the default theme for whatever forum template they are using - the theme broke on friday night, so they had to revert to this one until they can fix it.

I love blue and white, so I like this version of the forum better. I'd just like them to fix the reply to make writing more legible. Other than that, I'm content :)

The changes are almost done, but it sounds like some of you are still seeing the in-progress work. Your browser is cached. So, to see the current version of the forum, with almost all of the fixes, try this:

1) Log out of the forum.

2) In your web browser, clear your cache (use Preferences in Firefix/Safari or Options in Explorer).

3) Quit your browser.

4) You may need to restart your computer, too.

5) Log back in to the forum. If you still see the things you're describing above, visit each of these URLs and hit the REFRESH button in your browser:

6) Come back to the forum. If you're still having problems, repeat the steps above.

7) If you're still having problems after that, it's possible that your ISP is forcing you through a cache server and you won't see the current version of the format until they update.

That's about all I can suggest. All of the problems listed above are fixed now. We have a new design - not using the default theme anymore. The

U2always forever - to answer your question, it was broke. We're fixing because the forum was down for several hours on Friday night and couldn't be restored to its previous format. I've spent about 15 hours so far trying to rebuild things this weekend, when I should've been doing other things.

whitewave & Notcomingdown -- this is not the vanilla/default theme. If you're still seeing that, follow the steps above to try to update to the current theme.

ABloodRedSky - the reply box has been fixed. Try the steps above, especially #5, to see the updated styles.

HTH, gang.

Heya m2, joeusa and all,
Thanks for the answer here ( I asked in another thread) and thanks for the detailed instructions.  *big applause* 
All is well now and I'm sorry you had the system crash & all the hours you had to put in to get it up and running again.
We all really appreciate all you put into this site & forum, and its running fine now. 

*everything crossed it all goes smoothly now!* 

Have a good one with your families today, and we'll see you around!
