If you encounter any bugs, whether its error codes or you simply think the layout needs work let us know!

Current list of to do:
  • Making the sidebar available on toggle; I was thinking to make it so you can switch between always there or toggle to show it
  • Hide/Show the new+popular section on front page (done 24-11)
  • Hide genre specific forums (done 03-12)
  • Add scottish flag(done 25-11)
  • Check possibilities of a shout box
  • Change icon top right to a more login-friendly icon(done 25-11)
  • Add dark mode
  • Check for quick search possibilities
  • Fix the media + img embed widths
  • Missing logo Firefox(done 28-11)
  • Smilies next to quickreply(done 03-12)

Had to log in 3 times on iOS before I stayed logged in

Clicking on a popular topic should take you to the latest page

Let me know if this is still an issue after a while as I had a few changes in cookie settings :)

hmm I love the design, would remove the right bar since it takes a lot of space on the screen (besides the fact that the same buttons are next to the profile icon hehe)

Would love to have the option back to hide genre-specific forums. But as stated in the change log maybe not returning :(

And an option to hide new and popular topics on mobile version. As it takes to much space imo.

Change is new and scary and I'm scared!! :omg:
JK, the new layout looks nice! Great work (L)
However I agree, is it possible to have the sidebar hidden unless a "burger" menu icon is selected, like how it is in the top left to view my posts/active topics? Thanks again guys!

how come Wales gets its own flag but Scotland doesn't :+

looking good though, I'd also like the right side bar gone, or at least toggle-able

I think so too, the bar on the right is too big.

I'll definitely work on trying to build in a toggle to show/hide it :)

Eventually I would like to add more functionality to the sidebar

It might be a bit ambitious, but maybe there can be a short instant messenger in the sidebar, like the shoutbox on LSDB? I think it would be pretty neat way for some users to share short thoughts without having to find a topic :)

Wow! Love the redesign. Would maybe put the menu on the right, on the left though and make it expandable :)

it is sooo difficult for me to get used to this redesign. i'm soo used to the old one, i have a feeling that i don't have a good overview of everything like on the old design. probably because it is more spacious :paranoid: :dunno:

I'd also change the "on/off" icon at the top of the page to something else because it's not obvious it redirects you to the login page at first sight

also +1 on the shoutbox, it's a fun feature :D
