    Welcome Back

    Well, time for another release of the new style. The main bug bares should now be resolved. This theme will not be taken down, and new bugs will be fixed on the fly based on priority.

    I will say, here and there minor things are apparent ie, some off centered text on redirection and such all minor. If you do find anything major please create a help topic for it. The vip panel and myfiles have been flagged for new designs too in the near future'

    Changes;

    - Forum now loads much much faster, we've implemented a new server side caching system to ensure pages load faster than ever.

    - Header was causing the layout to become off center on monitors with "smaller" resolutions. This has been resolved.

    - Header is now linked to the index.

    - Post / reply to topic follows the same structure as the old template.

    - Username of forum helpers have been made lighter.

    - PHPBB's standard topic icons have been replaced with a new set, not perfect, but better. I've also increased the padding around here to make things feel much more roomy. I've removed some of the grays to remove the colour clash in the last release.

    - UCP has been given some TLC. All areas here are now usable and presentable. UCP in the previous release virtually had no attention given to it.

    - MCP Now styled and correct.

    - My posts, View new posts, View active topics, View unaswered posts - Correctly styled.

    - Login / Site rediction - more in keeping with the theme.

    - Topic locked buttons / Now correctly display depending on the topic status state.

    - Post preview re-styled.

    - Added myfiles link to the extras tab.

    - Rank bars now correctly display when viewing posts.

    - Applied padding to post content.

    - Search results styled and are now formatted correctly.

    - Jump to links in search results now link correctly to there link html anchor / name.

    - View online / search / memberlist - styled.

    - Signatures - restyled just like the previous theme.

    - Extras panel. This has been sligtly re-coded so that if you open the extras pane it should always stay open regardless of page. DD uses a cookie for this so you'll need cookies enabled for it to save state. This was requested and I thought it would be a nice touch to add as some people prefer to have the links up there always accessible.

    DD supports the following browsers;

    IE7, IE8, FireFox 3 >,Safari,Opera & Google Chrome.

    More tweaks / revisions will be made throughout the week.

    Although the change is big, it's for the best and I hope you all like it.

    Great looking work Adam, I love the new design.

    edit: Is Nice Pants name showing VIP but still showing up in the rank team tab a simple glitch or banned?

    Wow, great work Adam!

    This probably isn't the right topic, but when is Crono going to make some more Podcasts? I do enjoy listening to them.

    E: You might want to edit the Podcast page to match the theme.

    Nice job man, the new layout looks beast. I appreciate your effort.

    E: Isn't there a big space beneath the Edit option?

    I really wasn't sure about this when we got the brief preview a while back, but it looks really polished now. Great work Adam & co.

    e: Hm, I keep going for the save button instead of submit. Don't want to yell a bunch of requests, but I feel like it should go on the right?
