Looks at least very unfamiliar to me. First impression was rather negative.
Must see, if it feels better this afternoon, at second looks.

Looks odd here, too. At the very least a font change.

Yes, it is since yesterdays server "upgrade". It is really weird. Also, it is impossible to add pictures into post anymore mad.
Time to move to old, combatace forum?

@Sandbagger
How did you manage that? I lost this feature/icon from Full Editor and Personal Messages. Should I reenable this feature anywhere?
Probably need admin rights?

Probably due to losing the images etc at the top of the page too, we had a customisation on our forum. Will PM someone to see if it's coming back.

I added images by linking to my Photobucket as I don't tend to use the full editor 'insert image link' function, which is still available for me.
Previous threads still have their images showing so the capability is still there to show them.

However not for me (us).
An option "Add image" directly to post, without need to upload your image to any external links is not available anymore mad .

Wow. Dropped in for a quick visit between road trips and saw this new format. Not too keen on it at the moment, and the limited ability to post pics is kind of a deal breaker. JJJ65, your suggestion of moving back over to the old CA forums is looking pretty good right now, plus we could have our signature images back again - I really miss those.

If it wasn't broken, why fix it?

Same reaction here, I'm afraid. Logged in this morning, thought my browser had broken the site...

I had to move this image to my Dropbox and then I could post it, but they've removed any and all of the abilities to edit the image. I'm with you guys, I really don't like the new layout. It will be really hard now to write our stories for the Centenary DID.

Edit: After posting, I discovered that this didn't even work. Jara, I think you are correct.

I hope this won't be the final version of this update, for reasons already mentioned in this thread.

The thing that ticks me off the most is the lack of support by the forum owners. I have been waiting two weeks after sending multiple messages to them about a problem and I have not heard a word from any of them!! It wasn"t like that at CA!

There is more info in this thread
http://SimHQ.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/4339385/1
There are responses from site admin - including the posting of images.

Also at the very bottom of the forum window there is an option to change the layout.
It is probably set to the old default of woff fixed.

For a short term fix try changing to UBBCentral-Crimson (I like that better)

I think the woff fixed will need to be fixed again - Pol mentioned WOFF had a custom one.

In what regard? Contact from admin or the display?

This is the new layout.
Close to the old one as possible, AFAIK.

Hope it's OK. smile
