    Just to update as well, although the forum software has seen a version 2.0 release, I'm going to stick with the 1.5 branch of the software that we're already running - for now - partly because I can do everything I really need with it, but also because there is no blogs option as yet for 2.0.

    I'll wait until xenforo 2.x has blogs and other addon features I'll be using here, before I consider moving over to it. I presume I'll have the choice to do so.

    I like the way things look now. The other looks sort of . . . severe.

    I like both the present SFFChronicles scheme I use now, and the 1.5 version, but for different reasons. Using a laptop, the present scheme is nice, open, welcoming, and easy on tired eyes (working long days at the mo).

    The SFFC 1.5 layout is more compact, and covers less of the laptop screen, but it is perfect for my phone. The 'severity' mentioned by Teresa is probably the harsher, more pronounced format, but that helps me on a smaller screen, making sections stand out better. Could you set it as a mobile-friendly site default, or is having default formats for different device types going to be too much work?

    Totally agree that the dimming of the top bar sections when hovering over them with the mouse is something to tweak. In general, though, I like it, Brian.

    I gave the 1.5 version a good go this week...but I had to change it back to the default.

    I found it far too severe and it wore me down! ;) It was a relief to get back to the warmer original.

    Prefer the older format on my aging Galaxy 5 Neo too.

    The addons I wanted to use are not currently up to scratch, which means a longer delay than expected. But better to ensure everything is done right. :)

    Take your time, Brian. I'm in no rush. :)
