A couple of new themes are going to be added in the fullness of time. So some of this may not apply!

With the Standard Skin it is responsive, so as you resize it, it also resizes and sort all the menu's out and the graphics at the top.

Quick links at the top of the page

give you access to the various options.

Under your name at the top right, you get access to your profile.

Under your profile and Board Preferences, you change the data format and who can send you emails etc. and also which Board theme you would like.

As of about 2 minutes ago, there is a choice of 2. One is the blue theme that is the bog standard one, and one is another official theme which is more red.

If you use Internet explorer you can drag and drop files onto the message box when you are writing a post. It doesn't work in Chrome though :headbang: Not sure about Firefox or Opera. Perhaps someone could try it and post back.

You can now also collapse the individual sections of the forum.

There is a new "media" tag - where lots of different articles can be easily (cut and paste the link essentially) into your post.

Looks like there are some potential limitations - the Amazon one for example has to be linked when you aren't logged into your Amazon account.

Youtube is supported, but we are trying to decide whether to enable it, or to keep it disabled and retain the BBCode that exists.

If we enable it, the BBCode has to be deleted - which probably means all the existing Youtube links will break.

Another feature just added, is the ability to change the width of the forum - its not yet perfect as it seems to leave the logo in the original location. - but the red theme is otherwise a little narrow.

Oh and another thing I've just noticed, is that you can attach more than one file at once, by just selecting them when you add files :thumbright:

Press the width button and it takes you here:

There are some fixed limits - off hand I can't remember what they are! :oops:
