Well done, sirs! Lots of good new options.

The navigation to threads seems a bit... random (page number) if i replied in it, seems to go to my last reply... if not, not to first or last page (ie 10 and Chrome).

In the "Post your Speed" thread, both go to the end of the first page... odd.

Not seeing the new button bars here. Also spotted bugs which I reported before seeing this thread.

Another small bug... when using the OP's drop down menu to send a message, the pm page lacks any content - no title, response box and no "ribbon".

For subscriptions for "forums.elementalgame.com" the link includes "forumsbeta.elementalgame.com" and leads to a 404 not found error.  The links produced, at least for elementalgame forum posts, need to be changed.

I like the new changes...A LOT. I notice, however, that they are not currently applied to the Wincustomize forums. Will they be? As it stands, I like them enough to use the Stardock forums instead and would find that damn inconvenient even though it's my choice. lol

DOH!  Can't believe I forgot to change that.  Thank you.

The changes are also in the WinCustomize forums (Same code, just different css/theme).  Clear your browser cache or forcing a refresh may help. But these changes are not in the WinCustomize "Articles" section and there are not any current plans to migrate them over, but that is something we can consider for future updates.

I tried in FF, Chrome, and IE and still see the old style.

ok so this is a bit of post necromancy and im hoping someone sees this but the subscribe button is annoying.for some reason it subscribes me to every post i make unless i specifically turn it off for each individual post is there a global button to not subscribe to new posts?

That's all been discussed in another thread.

If you do not wish to be subscribed to the thread, uncheck the box. End of story.

It will by default remain checked, until you uncheck it. There is no global button.
