    User's profiles on top, not left

    Brett, are you going to use this new vBulletin layout in the future? I mean the users' profiles which show on the top of the post, not where they were - on left.

    I read a post by Brett in another thread about this, he was not sure if he would leave it on top or change it back to the way it was.

    Brett also said in time it will start to look like the VH LINKS of old, colors, borders, logo etc etc.

    And thats about what its worth.

    I'm not a big fan of this layout, so I'll probably switch it to something more traditional. Maybe it will grow on me, I mean it is different.

    Its kind of like getting a new car. Everything is a smidge out of place or atleast not were I expect it to be.

    In stead of reading things on auto pilot I have to take a second and find studd.

    Ok, hopefully it is ok to post this here as opposed to starting a new thread, but is there an option to open all of the pages at once in a thread like on the last layout instead of having to thumb through the pages one at a time? The "all" button is what I speak of...

    It's different but it's also uncovienient, at least I think users' profiles are more clear when on left.
    I hope plenty of vB features will be disabled, like font size/color/align etc. It's disturbing IMO

    Not that I know if, I am going to change the page-split count it's too small though.

    I agree, some are annoying, I have to look through them and see which ones I really think are cheesy.

    In the Options you can change it. I bumped mine up to 20 posts per page already.

    It's convenient for a user but it kills the server to have it "display all" like that, especially if there are a lot of pages in a thread. One of the features I never liked about the old board. Think of it this way though, everything runs faster with this board because they weed stuff like that out.

    Go to Thread Tools at the top of the page, and select the printable version. That'll place them all on one page.

    How DO you change the font color anyways in here?

    Incidentally, the current layout here seems to be the way forum layouts have been progressing in style lately. I always found the VHLinks layout to be less intuitive because most of the message boards have the layout VHLinks currently has.

    The only exception in my browsings is the Presence website and Jam To This.

    I would give Brett some time to work things out here. Everything was lost and this board was put up in short order, probably to get things rolling again. I would bet he's got some changes coming in due time but it takes time to get all the forums, groups and everything else in order first. This board software has a ton of settings that need to be tweaked back to the way you had it, especially if you have imported existing data into it.

    I should add that it's only because of usage, not necessarily because I think the old VHLink style was worse or anything like that.
