Well done Fermain
Look & feel of the site is just fine. It’s the functionality that’s important & that seems to be spot on.
Thank you for the unseen backroom toil that keeps the board operational.
👍👍👍

PS I got two emails

I don't see any activity on the other threads. Are they up and running? Just tried a post on the Will Addison thread to see what happens.

Added a few themes that can be chosen from your User Control Panel (UCP), Board Preferences, My board style >

The original blue style is Prosilver, the others are black/grey/red/white trad Ulster colours and entirely optional depending on your own preferences. I can change all of these as well, so if anyone thinks of amendments, I can always make adjustments. For example, some of the button text on mouse-over are blurred and need sharpening in one of the themes.

Re: Tapatalk; After some user acceptance testing, we've found that the default responsive features are already integrated in the new forum software, and it's designed to work and look well in mobile browsers. So, unless there becomes a real need for it, I'm not going to re-enable Tapatalk on the forum at this time. Even the different styles seem to be picked up when you login and they also port across platforms so your visual experience remains unchanged.

Glad i decided to do a final check on here before posting to Bakebook asking why Uafc had disappeared.
I only ever view from my mobile, so found tapatalk handy.
If i use a mobile browser and bookmark it, is there a way to see the most recently updated threads, rather than having to go through each of the separate boards?

You can always use the quick links at the top left menu, and select new posts. Or Unread posts. then bookmark it.
And depending on your settings, you should receive a notification that your post has been quoted on the top right menu.

As part of our commitment to providing secure, high-performance products, we will be upgrading and rebooting our Managed VPS platforms next week to apply essential security updates.

This work is scheduled to take place on Saturday the 17th of August between 19:00 and 21:00.

Since we will be rebooting our servers, please expect outages to occur during this period.
