Server time is :

Sun Sep  8 19:12:27 CDT 2013

(based in Dallas)

Calculated from there, are you still in -4 ? My profile is showing (with auto-detect) a +6 difference from Dallas which is correct.


Oh, OK.  I was going by GMT.  I hit "auto detect" and it shows 1.

What do the colored squares under our names represent?  I assume it has to do with the number of posts.

Autodetect worked for me, too, but calculating the time offset from something other than GMT was confusing.

Yeah, but I reckon I can tweak that. I'll look into it later....not exactly a biggy ;)

Perhaps this has been discussed elsewhere, but can we please have minimal mobile HTML (aka "iPhone") version back? Or something equivalent? It was much easier to read on my iphone 5, whereas now I get the full desktop view.

An iPhone/Mobile view is on the list. The old package we used was outdated and not usable anymore. Stay tuned!

Is it just me or were the default fonts, sizes and colors quite a bit readable with the last skin ? Doesnt SMF provide user-preference skins and templates so i can go into preferences screen and say "read in non christmas tree mode"

Things look much faster now.

I notice that our comments no longer show our location.  It's always interesting to see where the various commenters are.

If savuporo meant "more readable", then I'd agree - the fonts were a bit better in the previous version.  Specifically, the smaller font in quotes and the tiny font for page numbers in the forum index pages are to my (middle-aged) eyes are too small.  (I'm on a 1920x1080 24" screen, FWIW)

I'm good now, correct times both in web and Tapatalk.

I did the auto detect suggestion and that corrected the problem when I access the site via a web browser. However the time is off by two hours in Tapatalk. I have installed on a couple of iDevices, and both show the problem with NSF. Other forums (yes, I do look at one other forum than NSF <g>) do have the correct time zone offset is Tapatalk.

Am I missing another setting?

I'm not having trouble with the font.  If anything, it looks a bit larger than the old one.  I have a 1920 x 1200 monitor.  Have you tried changing the font size in your browser?


And having mentioned that, I tried it on the home page and the headings now all show up on the same line, and the right sidebar is back.  It had been displaying underneath the main section.

Was just looking at it :). I'll add some CSS rules to scale back on 1024 screens, will be online tomorrow hopefully.

My screen size is 1920x1200, but I nearly always use Aerosnap to have my browser on the left side and another application on the right.  Therefore my browser window is 960 pixels wide, which is not generally a problem for most other sites.

The time thing is confusing.  I assumed GMT as well.

I'm trying to see what's different about L2 posts and I don't see it.  L2 looks exactly like the public forums except for the top bar.  Am I missing something?  I expected a different color scheme or something.

I've noticed that quoted text is yellow instead of blue.  Or more accurately, has a yellow background.
