The overhaul on the html pages look great.
One item I noticed missing now is a download for a test script.
That a potential new customer could download and run to ensure that ubb would work on the server they use.

Also on the community page I noticed that the menus with drop downs are way out of alignment now.
Such as MyStuff,Active topics and Search.

In Firefox - Active topics (when clicked) appears halfway down the page.

Requirements: PHP 4.3+

I'd suggest up to PHP 5.3 as we all know of the issues with 5.4


Using version :: 7.6.0

I see something hoky inserted on all pages.
liclass="active"
Should be
li class="active"

I have never used a class in a simple list but it appears to be inserted in the wrong location also.

Seriously though, why is it our color scheme matches that of one of the UBB's direct competitors; FusionBB?

You can still see it in the html; I was hoping the version had been truncated completely as security through obscurity (nothings easier to find sites to exploit than Googling the version number an exploit is for).

The version displayed somewhere ?
We need to compare features and Bugs.

Seeing that this is the support forum we have to know the obvious to reference it.
Or do we wait for the Discussion Topic to start to know which version it is ?

It was being updated today.
Or is it a new Style sheet ?

The current version running here is mentioned numerous times in the html coding, view the page source of any UBB page and you'll see it (just showing lines it occurs):
Code
	<meta name="generator" content="UBB.threads 7.5.7" />
	<link rel="stylesheet" href="/forums/styles/common.css?v=7.5.7" type="text/css" />
	<link rel="stylesheet" href="/forums/styles/Ubb_1383272274.css?v=7.5.7" type="text/css" />
	<script type="text/javascript" src="/forums/ubb_js/ubb_jslib.js?v=7.5.7"></script>
	<script type="text/javascript" src="/forums/ubb_js/image.js?v=7.5.7"></script>
	<script type="text/javascript" src="/forums/ubb_js/quickquote.js?v=7.5.7"></script>


As for the version of the new build; we'll know when it's released.

Looks like a reverse silhouette using the same color scheme and layout.

First is they fixed the alignment issue with the menus.

I don't really care about the new style.
It looks okay but it does not float my boat.
Possible Brooks will tweak it a bit.

Since we can create whatever style we want it to be, such as what Brooks did with this site.

That is his option.

It would have been nice if he created a new default style with the new style , Then left the other intact and if I don't like it I could have opted for what we had before in my preferences. But it is what it is.

Besides most of the style changes were what it used to look like when the ubbcentral style was created for v7.2.
Some effects were lost in the newer versions up to v7.5.7 due to css additions in the styles editor and most all never went back in and added them back.

Where the heck am I? It feels like I've stepped into the TWILIGHT ZoNE.

I clicked here for my monthly view (and chuckle).... I almost deleted the link since I thought that I had been hijacked.

Did I miss an announcement? Or is this a new "Guess what we're doing?" release?

Is this Halloween-colored makeover suppose to be a peek into a future UPGRADE for the rest of us? Seriously I'm confused.

It appears to be by design on the forum style.
blank gifs are used now for nonewfolder.gif.
So you only will see a image if it is say a new post or locked and probably global announcements(which appears to be a envelope icon/with a small red x).

I'm hoping that the issues that I'm seeing in FFox are fixed; the QR box's header is white so it clashes with the background gradient (as does the background for the new reply, topic options, manage topic, and page indication areas), the left column is right against the center one yet the right and center have a ~10px space; this is all on the default stylesheet.

Be thankful you can see the QR box at all. I can't stay logged in with IE11, so I had to log in with my phone to comment.

It's looking better; I think it'd look better with a 5px border on the left/right vs having none now; but whatever works...

At least now the html issues with the private message page are more obvious and may actually get worked on to get the bug squished since it's been there and pretty obvious since 7.2...

Since someone is actually looking at this, a spacer on the body_col should work too as the buttons and the top page indicator are scraping right on the border of the breadcrumb bar... And the bottom page par looks odd with no border, it's just :there:

No worry, since FusionBB is apparently no longer being developed. Sold and supported, but no developement in I can't remember how long.
