    I have an aversion to avatars. Just adds more noise to the experience.

    Sorry to disagree but I feel having avatars have nothing to do with aversions,hiding or anonymity.It gives members the freedom to express their individuality,and adds a little fun to the forum to see some of the comical avatars they come up with.I think you'd be surprised how many members would take advantage of it if it were allowed.This is only forum out of dozens I've been a member of and also been admin. and mod on that doesn't allow avatars.

    Just my humble opinion

    I really depend on the search function....hopefully everything will work out and we will be able to use it like before! I know a lot is involved in making an upgrade like this. I'm definitely not used to it yet, but will adjust in time.

    I miss the RSS scrolling feed of new posts...!! Made it really easy to follow many topics at once, in realtime, as they update.

    After working with it a few hours, I'm finding that the colors are a bit lacking in contrast and the font size is a little small on the thread titles. In my iPhone, the title size is smaller than the size of the author name font.

    I maintain an e-commerce site and know just how much time and energy an upgrade can suck out of one's life. You've done a nice job, Barry. Kudos!

    The search index is being rebuilt right now. Big drain on the server, but within an hour, it should be complete and the board search fully functional.

    I've got a problem (most likely is user error) when trying to view the latest posts.

    I've got www.beesource.com saved as a bookmark. When on the home page from that URL, I click on "Recent Forum Threads (or view latest posts) and this is what I see at the top of the page:

    Warning: fetch_template() calls should be replaced by the vB_Template class. Template name: navbar in [path]/includes/functions.php on line 4097
    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/beesour/public_html/forums/vaispy.php(334) : eval()'d code on line 1
    Warning: fetch_template() calls should be replaced by the vB_Template class. Template name: headinclude in [path]/includes/functions.php on line 4097
    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/beesour/public_html/forums/vaispy.php(337) : eval()'d code on line 1
    Warning: fetch_template() calls should be replaced by the vB_Template class. Template name: footer in [path]/includes/functions.php on line 4097
    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ENCAPSED_AND_WHITESPACE, expecting T_STRING or T_VARIABLE or T_NUM_STRING in

    Then the rest of the page format is all off and I'm not sure that new posts are being updated there.

    I'm on a Mac using Safari as my browser.

    Any ideas anybody what I'm doing wrong?

    I have a hard time quickly scanning what thrads have new posts in them. Intuitively, I would think the red post icons have new posts....but it's not so- the red icons mean a 'hot topic'. What the heck does a 'hot topic' mean?? lol! i think any topic with new posts would be 'hot'.
    But no, I have to look for the visually subtle 'pieces of paper in the envelope' icon to scan over which threads have new posts. hard to ignore the red/vs/blue thing, yet 'hot topic' means nothing to me.

    P.S. I like avatars! Plus they make it super easy to see at a glance who posted what, without having to constantly have to READ names of the authors of every post.

    OK, unless you find a glaring problem (which I haven't found), members will have to just kick back and use the board as is. It will take several weeks to get everything back looking like the old forum. Code has to be located that changes various aspects of the skin and there are a LOT of templates that have to be reconfigured. I have a day job, so this isn't going to happen over night. I still have bigger issues on the front burner; chat room, member ads, buttons, icons, smilies, before I get into all the fonts, color, sizing issues.

    Isn't this fun?!

    One thing, not a big deal or anything, but I liked seeing the view/reply count in two separate columns. I don't know if that is possible to change, but it would be nice.

    My goal will be to get it looking as close as possible to the old format. Everything can be changed/moved. Unfortunately, the documentation for this latest version is very poor. Takes a lot longer to find the place to make the changes.
