    The only hangup I'm getting occurs when I click on Reply to Thread. It just takes me to the Quick Reply box, it doesn't go to the full Reply screen. Not really a problem, but is it happening to others?

    There's more room for actually information on each page this way. Match, set and game with that.

    That's a default setting in this version of vB AFAIK.

    One odd behaviour: when I click on the Home link on the bar at the top I get this message, which usually indicates a link to a restricted forum, deleted thread or admin features:

    I suspect the main point of that big 'Reply to thread' button is a little VB placement to encourage passing non-members to join.
    It's kind of tempting if you don't know your way around, and if you're not registered it'll take you straight to the signup page.

    Curses, foiled again.

    It was no doubt set that if you clicked on it, you were transported to a conspiracy chatroom...

    Yes, this new deal will take some getting used to. Gotta get some new sunglasses. Feels like I am someplace else, someplace far far away, where no Rogue has gone before, over the rainbow! Well, maybe not that far away, but someplace different. We definitely ain't in Kansas anymore.

    I go out for a pack of smokes, and now I can't find my way past the front door....Very interesting. Sounds like I've missed a lot of juice... The future looks bright.

    After spending countless years on the old format, this is by far the most dramatic visual change to occur on the forum! Doesn't feel as warm and welcoming as the Green did but that will surely change with time!

    Oh, man. I just read the first page of that link. I hope that Anders Lindman dude doesn't find his way over here. Opana's head would explode.

    The "Forum" button appears to be the new "Home"; I got the same message, when I clicked the "home", I thought I was in the "Cooler" already.

    There is also a link on the bottom of each page next to "contact us" that I have been using. That one works fine. Convenient since The bottom is where the last post is.;)
