WOW. Something is seriously wrong with me. I am so ashamed of myself.

So is this officially P-Web 4.0? Or are we technically 3.5 since we haven't had to re-register?

Edit: Also, at first I thought it was just a few things, but nope: everything is on the opposite side that it used to be on.

Hm. I don't know. It feels more like Pweb 3.0+, because when the two crashes happened that gave rise to Pweb 2.0 and Pweb 3.0, they were completely unexpected and everything was lost. This is really the opposite of that.

OOOOOH!

I return from my exploration of the "Search" feature with news -- it seems to only work on posts that have happened post-changeover. Drat. Oh well, in time, that will probably be good enough. And a heckofalot better than the totally broken function on the other board.

Why do some of the topic icons look like they're scrolling, but others are just totally still?

It doesn't seem to be working for me, other than like I described before -- terms only work if they were posted after the upgrade.

I LOVE the way it looks now! Much better!

I also love the new ease of font colors.

I was really hoping for a away to browse new post without going back to Milagre for each new thread. Remember way back in the day that we had the "next thread" and "previous thread" buttons that would take you to the new post? Is there any way for that to happen again now?

Topics with new posts have little red folders. Ones with no new posts have little manila folders. I think that's how it works anyway.

FIRST YEBRA!!!

second, there are two sticky threads at the top of the forum, but the icons have changed so it might not be obvious. That explains part of your question, the other part is just going to take some getting used to. The new theme has different icons for posts, so you can either learn the new icons or switch themes to one that makes more sense to you.

Hope that helps.

It seems to be working for me, the only thing I'm having an issue with is the alignment?
like in this thread the poll is aligned far to the right so I have to scroll right to see it and there is a blank bar on the right. but on a thread without a poll the thread is aligned to the right with a empty bar on the left so I have to scroll right to read.

I knew about the stickies; I think what confused me was that it actually remembered that, though I had visited and skipped a thread or two, I still hadn't read those. So they were underneath threads I had read.
