    It's because the linking of single post in XF is not the same as in vB. It won't work. Not only Kees' sig, all links which point to posts with single-view mode will give you an error.

    Brilliant, you've cracked it :thumb: So there's NO reason we can't have the previous look, but with the extra security of XF. How about it LowWaterMark ? :)

    Yes we can, but it's not as convenient as having it on the same page @ the bottom !

    It's curious that you want to encourage more Mobile traffic, but have consistantly rejected requests by members for a dedicated Mobile thread ? Maybe now you will ;)

    Yep, they clearly need to change the fonts to sans-serif. From a quick code look it seems that most fonts this theme is using are not even installed on Linux (Georgia, Helvetica, Times New Roman).

    The template (colours) is horrible, please change it to something similar to what we had before.

    Can't say I'm a fan. Maybe it will grow on me.

    Hi,
    Regardless of members disliking the brightness (which I agree with), my main grouch is that you cannot see easily where one post ends and the next one begins, they all look to be a continuous mish mash.

    The de-linking of new posts won't work, both with "hxxp" or giving "-" tag on each end of the link. However, links which were posted before the conversion are still inactive. Use the code tag if you don't want the links in your posts to be active.

    @Everyone
    Quit whining about the theme. It can be taken care of later. Let's find anything that doesn't work as it should. Seriously people... >=V

    Bug or not? The recent posts are not sorted on posting time.

    After resetting and changing my password it seems to be working fine now.

    Wow Wilders has been hit with the ugly stick quite a few times it seems, I have to agree with others the new layout is a bit of a mess, the posts all seems to jumble into one & the bright colours are giving me serious eye strain. I hope the theme gets toned down quickly as I can't surf here for more than few mins before I start to get a sore head. The previous look was nice & clean & subtle & had great readability , the new one looks like it was designed by a five year old, no offence but it is way to bright & gaudy.

    Looks like change is the only constant, I do miss the old wilders layout.

    Hi guys, congrats for the new platform. Good job!
    I have just a question: how (if possible) to hide some sections I am not interested in? In vB I could make the forum page more compact, basically hiding some sections, without the need of lot of scrolling to reach down the forums I am interested in.
    Thanks.
