If you've found any bugs around the site, have run into any issues, or something related, this is a great way to alert overseers and see if anyone
else is having similar issues! This is also a great way to keep up with any updates as there will be a log found a post below of anything we've
found with links to the issue/resolution posted on this thread. That being said, please utilize this to your full extent so the overseers can keep
their jobs as professional bug zappers and our site can remain bug free/run far more smoothly. We will also now be updating this with any and
all site changes that are made to keep you guys in the loop!

    • FAQ:
      Per the new theme, there are quite a few reoccurring questions so here's a basic rundown!
      - Where are the topic titles?
      The new theme has removed visibility of the topic title on the main post, but it can currently be viewed on the open forum and in "search user's posts". As of right now we are looking into getting them back as they are definitely a missed feature but it may simply be something the new theme demands we do without!
      - The font is rather large?
      We are aware the font has changed and yes, the default is much bigger than before but this is what we have bbcode for! If you don't like the font you can use the size and font tags to edit to your convenience. This bigger text makes things much easier to read for those with poor eyesight!
      - Where is the banner?
      Unfortunately something with our site just isn't accepting any image up at the top right now! We are looking into it now and will have our lovely stag back soon.
      - What happened to Prosilver?
      The php boards standard theme has been disabled per admin request in order to get people used to and accustomed to the new theme. We know its tough and there are some changes that need to be made, but we cannot support anything that happens on Prosilver and recommend sticking to Milk v2. That being said, with prosilver active, it also takes priority over Milk and new users may struggle to find the correct theme to use!
      - My posts still aren't showing up!
      We had thought the update would fix this issue but it seems to still be occurring. Please hang tight, we have notified Ellimist of this and will be looking into a permanent fix to this soon.
      - Can we get more colors?
      I am working on more color variants as we speak as well as little color fixes on the default. Unfortunately, not more can be done until we make sure this theme is stable and fix any issues users have brought up that way it transfers over to all color themes.
      - Why doesn't it look good on mobile?
      The mobile version of the site is too pinched even for my liking so I have provided everyone with ways to use the desktop view on their phones! Please see the following guides for Android and Apple usage.
      - Why doesn't the preview match the forum post?
      This is a little hiccup with proportions and will be looked into immediately. Until then, try to post often and check your sizing if you code to make sure everything still fits. I hope this is one issue to be easily solved.
      - What is up with the site width?
      We finally implemented fixed width but in order for it to work we had to go with smaller forum space. While this does suck and a lot of code did break, everything is now universal for everyone which makes things much easier in the long run!
      - My code broke :c
      Unfortunately with shrinking the board, a lot of code did mess up and a few proportions may be off, don't fret though. If you head here I will do my best to help fix anything broken/condense things.
      - What happened to quick links?
      Right now we are aware there is no bookmarks link in that area but it should be altered/added soon. As for all the new options, while it may not benefit you guys, it could really help out us mods with getting around so we ask you guys accept and love them just as much as we do.


      Changelog:
      - New theme has been switched over
      - Site font is now Raleway
      - We have adopted a fixed width
      - The sidebar application and news slider
      - Subforums on the index are collapsable
      - The team page has a different look
      - Forum icons have changed to this
      - At the bottom of every page is our social media icons!


      Known issues:
      - Broken bbcode (Not much we can do, its just an adjustment and I will help fix any and all!)
      - Color adjustments (Some areas are just a little too hard to read)
      - Team page (Working on a personalized layout)
      - The bookmarks link isn't in quicklinks (We miss this too, we'll get it back)
      - Preview doesn't match up (This is going to be looked at ASAP)
      - Mobile viewing (Please switch your view to desktop when on mobile for best experience)

      Surprise! I haven't answered this yet as it was an issue we've been aware of for a while, but finally tomorrow at 7am we are updating and upgrading our site to hopefully resolve all issues.

I understand if this is a work in progress, but I am wondering if these things will still be altered (I love the new layout btw!)

- Will the default font be set back to what it once was?
- Will there be a way to adjust the width? Right now the mobile version looks really squeezed to me and not really comfortable on my phone
- Will the links in the drop down menus be made darker? Right now they are a bit sore on my eyes.

Edit; will the basic phpbb theme also be available?

Thank you for all you have been doing so far! Definitely like the site!

Is there a way to make it all fit to the screen without having to scroll from side to side?

    • To answer your questions:
      - The font will not be as it once was, but there is always the font bbcode to use if something else is preferred for your own posts!
      - There will not. It is either set width for all or free width that changes based on whatever screen you have. As for phones, if you go to your internet app and enable desktop viewing it looks much better.
      - I can definitely go back through and fix up colors as time progresses and I go to add more color schemes as well.

It is under UCP > Board Preferences > Global settings, right? Because I can not change my layout from there nor can I find it in the UCP (forgive me if im just sleepy and overlooking)
Stay tuned.
