That is cool. I just went back to blue from brown in an instant.

And you can change it even when you're not logged in. You never have to look at the brown again! lol

I am SO glad this is the first post I read today because I logged in and EVERYTHING LOOKED DIFFERENT!!! I thought I'd taken the wrong pills again! WHEW... once more my sanity has been validated. It does look pretty cool all brown and stuff. I like it!

So did I! But I must say every time I log in I'm getting more and more impressed with the new styles and features.

Glad you guys like it! Another I found:

The "Search Thread"and "Search Forum" features

We've always had the ability to conduct advanced searches on the search page, but here we have really handy search shortcuts. When you click on a forum, in the upper right corner under the page numbers you see an option to "search forum." Even better, when you click on a thread, you see an option to "search thread" in the upper right corner. So, if you're cruising a particular forum or thread, you don't have to go up to the search page and enter in a bunch of settings. You can just type your terms in the box there and it'll search that particular forum or thread automatically!

I am loving this new board! It has so many more features that we didn't have before. A couple more of my favorite features are:

You can collapse forums by clicking the button on the far right side of the forum name to "shrink" the board. To expand it back, just click the button again.

Another thing I love is how you can go to "Edit Signature" in your User CP and put a link in an image. I did this to my Joe Walsh Online banner in my signature. If you scroll over it and click, it takes you to joewalshonline.com.

i love the way you can see the most recent posts when you log in. I used to avoid logging in so as not to lose the 'view posts since your last visit' feature.

I think it's handy that when you click on someone's user name on the left side, above the avatar (if they have one) and ranks, you can get options to:

1) View the person's profile
2) Send the person a private message
3) Visit the person's homepage
4) Find more posts by the person
5) Add the person to your contacts

Not bad!
