    Look for the little smilie face in the menu bar right over where you type your reply. Click on that for smilies.

    Very cluttered interface (lots of fancy graphics, but doesn't list topics nicely) and difficult to read content in threads, I think.
    Any chance we can make it look like the good old advrider?
    (feels a bit like going from windows 7 to 8)

    I'm sure the move was done for all the right reasons, but I have to say I miss the old layout quite a bit.


    Edit: also, what's up with the fonts? How come the 7 (above and here) sits lower than the 8?

    On my iPad 2 the search button encroaches into the banner photo.
    It still works when I click on it but it needs to be placed different.

    Admins will have to answer that one.

    Hover your mouse over your name in the top right.

    They came over fine. Hover over "forums" on top right. Click "Watched threads." If you had your subs filed into subfolders, they didn't come over. This was discussed in several of the "things are changing" threads. I hope you didn't get bit by this one.

    In the reply box, click on the smiley face. Smilies are further split into tabs.

    The Orange Crush skip link that pops up white to go directly to 950/990s does not work but does work from the drop down box.

    The Contact Us link is not live.

    On the old sys I used a combination of style and settings that displayed the posts newest first, and did not display images. If I can reproduce that functionality it will help with modifying the code that automates the tent space list map updates. It would also help if I can increase the number of posts per page, but that is not critical.

    We have three skins now, look in the bottom left corner of the page for a little gear wheel and click it.

    That would be nice. And how do you organize subscribed threads?

    Its going to take a while for all the users to figure out the new software. It is quite different. We've been playing with a test site for a month or so and we're still finding things.

    For example, if you look at the bottom of the screen under More Options, you see a little circle thing. Clicking on that brings up a quick navigation menu.

    I miss seeing location next to the usernames, it comes in handy every now and then when talking (whether it's commenting on local laws or other stuff). Can this be changed?

    It's there.

    Create a post and you'll see it to the left of the photo icon.

    So far I've been unable to find my booring little ride report thread linked in my signature. The link goes dead as does the google search result (tries to go to same link)
