    @ LowWaterMark,
    Time [and daily counters for members & guests] will tell if your decision was right or wrong....

    Awesome, thanks :). I asked because some Wilders users mentioned about updating their Wilders bookmarks. (I assume you meant "without" instead of "with.")

    This is the way of the world, anon.
    No matter where you look, the older are asked/told to give way to the younger.
    My parent's retirement home was totally renovated in order to attract younger people. The people already there weren't happy, but I guess it worked. They are attracting new people.
    Music in stores is the same. It's there to attract the younger.
    It goes on and on.
    I find it depressing that the concerns are not understood.
    But it usually does work.

    For Watched Forums, the forum column is much wider than it needs to be, while the latest thread column could be much wider. (Apologies if this has been mentioned already.)

    When viewing a given forum, it's hard to tell Sticky threads from non-Sticky threads because the Start Date column is to the right of the Title column. Perhaps the Start Date column could be moved to the left of the Title column? (Apologies if this has been mentioned already.)

    How do you "mark" all threads read in a Forum now ?

    P.S. I like the 3.x - fluid, why was it not made the default ?

    In some places, the Default Style has text that is too faint to read easily. I'm glad the VB 3.x Fluid style is available!

    Click on the quote button so you see this: {QUOTE][/QUOTE] (only with a bracket and not a brace). Then put your cursor between the middle brackets ][ and try to paste in text.

    When viewing a given thread, I find the VB 3.x Fluid style to be much better than the Default Style because 1) it's easier to see where one post ends and another begins 2) the "minutes ago" text isn't present in the same column as the post text 3) the "minutes ago" text is too faint to read easily in the Default Style.

    Now I see. This is an IE11 compatibility issue as it works with Chrome. Similar issue happened at WTT when they migrated to the new IP Board.

    Browser compatibility can be an issue for sure. Thanks Bill.

    Still a few issues to deal with but the experience is certainly better for me now that I'm using vB 3.x - Fluid.
    Thank you for providing an alternative to the default.

    @ LWM

    Hi, after a reboot with everything flushed i tried Rmus's suggestion of using https://www.wilderssecurity.com/?styleid=4 to try & get the FLUID look whilst NOT logged in. I usually surf with Scripting/Cookies disabled, & only allow those when logging in.

    I discovered that i had to enable Cookies for Fluid to work & continue to do so. No big deal, & MUCH better than having to enable Scripts too, but still !

    Also Font Color doesn't seem to work for me ?

    *******

    Whilst composing this, i found the answer to the question i asked earlier, but got no reply ? To place our Uploaded files where we want them in our posts, just LEFT CLICK & HOLD & move it/them to your desired position :)
