Not a bug- but can we get more categories in the top menu bar?

Definitely not an improvement and just requires more time wasted with more keystrokes. It makes you want to use other forums more that provide the same service.

Breadcrumbs take you back to http://www.diychatroom.com/
Should go to?--- http://www.diychatroom.com/forum.php
Why leave the forum and return to the home page? I use the breadcrumbs a lot to navigate around

Mike, you never fail. Never comment until someone is done. They left the site running while working on it. I like the new look. The point of the forum is too help diy people with their projects. So far I see the new look attracting more people. If you are one of those people that ridicules facebook and twitter than I can not see a bright future for your business venture. You have to go where the people are, youtube is where people go for videos, google is where people go for information. I would just like to thank the people that are trying to make the forum better.

Yer right, I just checked on Mac FF and it's disabled, that sucks cause I use that function a LOT!
I cast my vote for going back to the former theme/layout!

Juan,

Herded cats for a few years so here are some of my observations and a couple of little niggly things that drive me nuts

I too agree on adding more heading jumps at the top. Looks like there is room. I would suggest at the very least adding plumbing and electrical. Those are probably 2 of the most active areas.

Sorry for the crappy pics

Thanks

Robyn
