Hm-m, seems that we have a "new look" in the forums, as of Sunday, May 06, 2012 @ ~ 2:30PM PDT.

Not sure that I like it, but time will tell. Most of us have just "rolled with the punches," and accepted all changes.

Getting rid of a lot of  excess code should help speed things up. These are the new skins that the forum announcements were referring to last week.

If the new look means less overhead... ie-faster forum... I am in favor

As you say... roll with the punches

Are "show most recent post" and tree view now considered "excess code"?

Ah...well it seems tree view is working in this thread.

Were your preferences set to show threaded? That may have stuck through the redesign.

Yes.  It seems to work on new threads, but old threaded threads show as flat.

Don't need all this Gray I just posted a Problem showing this:

Adobe Forums_ Something Wrong on my iPad with viewing post.png

The titles should be smaller  so that even the word Browse is beside history.

I think the folks designing the skins were PC only and didn't try them on Macs.

Had they created them on Macs then they would work on both.

Bill,

It seems that we are getting closer to the way the fair forums looked. You may follow one of the links here to see, if you have forgotten:

It's Not a fix but I fixed the problem by use of an extension called NoSquint for SeaMonkey/FireFox. I set magnification of font  to 85%. and Maganification for Full Zoom level 120%

I said it’s a Font issue and it is.

Yes, it HAS been a while, and I did manage to get used to the various iterations of Jive, so maybe this too will work out.

Having spent some time with the "new look," I have a few comments:

We no longer see the posting info of those posting - that had been rather useful, especially to "welcome" new posters. I guess that we can click on their avatar, and read up on them, but if one is responding to 100's of posts per day, that rather takes a lot of time.

The "Go to last post," or similar syntax, seems to be gone. That was useful for multi-page threads.

The color differentiation of New/Updated posts should have been red, and not another shade of blue with just bold.

I do agree that the sea-of-gray is not to my liking, but that might just be me.

I rather liked the alternating background, though that could mess up a Copy/Paste for block quotes. It was easier on my tired old eyes.

Now I have to learn that the Reply has been moved about.

I missed the "skins" thread, but did see it on the main page. Been in the UK so am just now catching up. Gotta' go read, as I suppose that I WAS warned...

OK, John C. has addressed a few of my "issues," in the "Skins" thread, so I will just be patient and try to learn the new "scheme."

I'll hold judgment on the new look and feel for a time, but I do have a question:

Where's the ''reply to xxxxxxx'' gone?  It's no longer possible to see whose reply button a poster pressed.  That was actually useful.  Now we have to rely on people quoting others to know who they're addressing.

Is it me or has the font gotten a little smaller.  I've been working hard all day on a book, so maybe it's just that my eyes are tired.

And I see that the editor font and the post font are different still...  Just look at a lower case g to see the difference.

-Noel

OK, so I'm not seeing things.  Not sure it's a good idea to stack the reply and other buttons vertically, though.  That just wastes screen space and makes scrolling forums longer.

I noticed SPDY is also being used.  That's a good thing.  But the layout still needs work.

Jim - the reply/mark stuff appears to be due to older cached CSS files. Relaunching the browser or clearing the cache and reloading the page seem to clean it up.

I got that.  But now they're all the way over on the left.  That's no good.  Most folks are right handed, and will move the pointer off to the right while reading a page.  So those buttons should go back in the lower right cornert, not the left.
