Major Forum Updates - Work In Progress 11/03/2015THE CURRENT LAYOUT IS NOT FINAL The sky is not falling, calm the hell down. Things are still a work in progress - you will most likely come across a broken link or post that isn't formatting correctly. Post formatting and link issues for the most part will be fixing themselves up overtime as software is making it through all the posts and updating them. Visit the announcement thread at http://www.loverslab.com/topic/54592-major-forum-updates-work-in-progress/ for any questions or reports. It should also be noted for all the people complaining about how this change is unnecessary and should've just left it the way things were. This is NOT because I felt changing the forum theme and nothing else, this is a MAJOR backend software update and with it, unfortunately, the previous theme is no longer compatible and new one HAS to be used as a result.
To suggest then that the site should've just kept using the old software is crazy. There are countless security and future usage reasons that would be a horrible idea. I get it, people don't like change - went through this exact barrage of comments a few years ago when the site moved from SMF forums to IPB3.4 forums, and now again with IPB3.4 to the current IPB4.1.
There will be an adjustment period. Things will improve as much as I can improve them right away and overtime. I'll try and get as much of the site to resemble the previous versions setup and add back as many missing things as I reasonably can. Not everything will be possible though, some people will have to adapt to different (hopefully better) ways of doing things they are used, for which I apologize but there is little I can for some of these.
