The previous default theme for the boards was out of date and was preventing people from registering, etc.

I have installed an up to date theme that fixes a lot of broken functionality. Icons and colors are still being worked on.

edit - changed default to Monk Black

personal opinions - the "monkly business" logo at the top is hosed in black.
The "EQ" icon is so distracting

Yeah. The logo was made for a light background. I'll get to it.

How are they distracting? And they need to be cleaned up also.

Well, this newer version has a lot of spam fighting stuff.. I''ll try to find something that works better than recaptcha.

yeah.. the monk d one

Which were you using before? I can change the default one to be the black and white theme. shrug. Just needed to get one up that at least allowed people to register.

Besides the monk logo needing cleaning up and the EQ icons as well, I like the new default quite a bit.

I changed it from the Monk D to Bonk Black for default.

You can see which one you are using down at the bottom. Just to avoid any confusion, which were you talking about? I'm assuming Black because of the messy graphics.

I've always just used the same color scheme as the old ezboards... I definitely noticed the change when I logged in.

I switched to monk-d, thats much better than the black..

What happened to the login in top right and the 'new posts' link from www.monkly-business.net?

now I have to click 'forums' then 'new posts' Can you please return the 'new posts' link to the front page?

Fatal

Fixed the logo and got rid of the EQ buttons in the Monk Black theme.

Changed the logo in the Monk D forum.


Ned, I added the New Posts and the sign in block to the front page in Monk D.

'new posts' is missing again from the front page, all i see now is 'today's posts' which isn't the same thing

Ned,

On the title bar there is the Todays Post link.

In the user box where you log in, right below the todays posts link, it sows your user name and right under your username it says "New Posts".

Is that not what you're refering to? or are you not seeing it?

I attached this image to show you what I see.

What's with the pink/grey envelopes on the left hand side?

Fatal

Supposed to indicate whether there is no new posts, new posts, are a hot thread I guess. I don't like them. Not sure what to replace them with tho.

The envelopes denote how many posts are in the thread. I think after 10 posts it turns read.

The arrow shows which threads you comment in.

The bold thread title means new stuff in it.

I like these: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=195909. Light, small(ish) and would match the black/grey theme pretty well.

Hmm. Not bad at all.
