    So you may have noticed that JeepKJ is running on a different forum software. It used to be the 8 year old vBulletin software, now its Xenforo.

    There will be continues tweaks going on with the site over the next few weeks. If you see an issue, something missing, or have any questions, post them all here. I will also be posting things that get fixed or added within this thread also.

    So far, I just added in "Today's Posts" link, which shows all newer posts, even the ones you viewed, and I added in the New Posts link, which shows all new posts but the ones you viewed already.

    It's the reply button. It will quote the user you want by hitting the reply button.

    It's always been there. It's a user group I have had setup on here for years. When you are a new member, you can not post a new thread in the classifieds until you become a Full Access Member. Once you have been registered for 5 days and post over 50 posts, you become a Full access member.

    Hehe, oops. Though it did take me a bit to find the "mark forums read" button also.

    Most likely to pay for the site.

    Does it make any difference if you move your phone/ipad from vertical to horizontal?

    I mostly use the Today's posts function when I check the board.
    Is there a way for it to show the newest post on the thread? Right now clicking on the listed threads, it just shows the first page which would be the oldest post.

    Thank you.

    Give it a little bit as it caches things. When you have viewed a few threads and you come back to that same thread with new posts, when click on the thread title, it will take you to the first unread post in that thread.

    No; same in both orientations. I did try Opera mini on the iPad and that does view properly, it's just Safari on both that doesn't work. Also, I don't see any option to switch to the mobile site.

    You have a sig on now. You viewing the forum from a phone and viewing it vertically? All sigs vanish on mobile. Move your phone horizontally and you will then be able to see your sig.

    Is there anything at all between the black and white screen colors, ones to dark to read, white is in your face hard to read as well
    Has to be something that is better

    Could possibly tweak the white a little bit so its not so white. Where do you think it needs to be less white, the background where the text is mostly?

    I am seeing a pure white in the message fields with an eggshell as a border. Personally, if the text field was the eggshell-almost-gray of the border and the border was at least somewhat darker (but not black!) it would be easier on the eyes. The reply field I'm typing in right now would be a good shade, in my opinion. That makes three shades of white on the page, which is a bit much.

    TL;DR Version: Somewhere in between stark white and jet black would be better than either of those two alternatives, which are all we have now.
