    New forum format

    I just wanted to say that the updated format looks a lot nicer and cleaner. Thanks.

    I think these are the flip side of the same point

    At the bottom left of the page is the "Quick Style Chooser" or some such, if you change from VFTT to vbdefault you get a much less intrusive color. This is not saved with your login, it needs to be repeated every session.

    Links may remain to the old site, my bad. I didn't catch them all. At some point, I will back up the entire site, and fix the links in the process.

    This should be fixed. You can limit the calendar to a certain date range and it was set to 2006-2011.

    I believe the links are now fixed. Tom can you confirm? (the search index is being rebuilt in the background...)

    You can go to Settings>General Settings>Forum Skin and should be able to make vbdefault the saved option so it shows up each time you visit.

    Tim - overall I've found the transition very smooth. Thanks for your hard work!

    Great job Tim. Thanks for the work. It does look great on the iPad.

    I know I saw it somewhere, but I misplaced the location. Can I donate through paypal? I would love to donate but I'm usually not a check guy.

    Thanks.

    Well, said! It always impresses me when I see someone perform a huge service in a humble, workmanship-like way. As Clapton said, a 'journeyman' piece of work! Thanks again.

    Great work, Tim.

    I tried playing with some of the new features, atleast I think it's new in the "Insert video" icon for posting. It lets you add the picture as well as a link into a post, the same as imbedding a picture. The thing that sucks is it is set at only "1" right now (normal default?). As in simply you can only imbed one per post. Can we up that to a more reasonable number like 5 or 6? You can see it in the report I posted I did one video imbed and the rest as links. Thanks

    12 images and 6 videos. OK? If this proves to be a problem, I can put it back to 1.

    I see no problem with this, as long as the board is not hosting the content.

    I'm having trouble marking all forums read.

    Typically I check "What's New?" and after checking out what on the list I'm interested in, I go back to the main page and click on "Mark Forums Read" at the bottom. Sometimes it works. Sometimes I get this:

    Your submission could not be processed because a security token was invalid.
    If this occurred unexpectedly, please inform the administrator and describe the action you performed before you received this error.

    Have you updated your bookmarks? What is your bookmarked URL and/or what do you enter in the browser's address bar? And what browser are you using?

    You might try clearing the cookies and history for *.viewsfromthetop.com and *.vftt.org and beginning anew.

    If you are using the browser's back button, you might try clicking the forums link at the tob (the tab) instead.

    At one time, there were some reported bugs against vBulletin for this, but they claim they are all fixed.

    Unfortunately, I don't have any better ideas for you at this time, but try the above and let us know,
