    I installed a new default style for the site - let me know what you think!

    The old one remains selectable via the style switcher in the bottom left corner of the page.

    While the new layout will take some getting use to, I actually like it. What I do not like is the color theme. The blue is fine, but that red/orange just clashes way to much. Is there anyone for individuals to change the color theme?

    The alert issue is actually viewport size related. The Alert menu comes and goes at different viewport sizes. It is a bit odd.

    Maybe need to delete cache?

    I can fix that.

    Yes, the blue on blue is perfect. I do like the design of the new layout, even if it will take me a bit to get use to it.

    I like the new theme; of course, I like sites to change over time and not remain static. Thanks Amin.

    I have to use a very small font to keep the top row of links (from Home to FujiXspot and icons) from overlapping the second row (from Search Forums to Mark Forums Read) and the thread title. If I'm the only user having this problem, I can write a style sheet to fix it on my PC.

    edit: I see now the first row has even more links on some other pages. I will write a style sheet to remove the ones I never use.

    edit: ok, fixed

    I don't have Gary's problem. The type, links, icons, etc., are really easy to read for me now, they just "pop" on the screen.

    I also like older style better, but appreciate the fact I can select it.
    I am thus happy.

    I really like it. It is easier to read on the tablet.
    Thanks for the nice option.

    I'm sticking with "old default grey".
