    Default White Board for the New Forum

    Ok so I know everyone is trying to get used to everything, and it's definitely not perfect yet, but we'll get there. I obviously have a lot of things to fix, but the bottom line is everyone can post and that's a good thing.

    With that said, I'd like to have a white board of things I need to fix or put back in addition to the things I know need to go back in, and I'm sure I'm missing a bunch of stuff. So please add on to this if it's something you want back in or even something new.

    So here's my list so far...

    Add the Likes back in.
    Get the Donor and Premium Member stuff back in profile.
    Change the baby blue to a darker blue.
    Work on the smilies a bit to get them more like our old ones.
    Change the post icons back to our old ones.
    I do need to load back in all the VH Store banners on the left.
    Put the Facebook/Twitter share stuff for threads back in.
    Fix the hammer guys background color on the user profile.
    Add the other fields, like "Favorite VH Song/Album" stuff back in.

    That gets us started.

    Not trying to nitpick.. Is there any way we can select the # of posts per page we want to see? Or can we do that now and I'm just too dumb to figure it out?

    Post Quick Reply is auto (default) now when advanced used to be the norm.

    Go Advanced used to only be the option when editing.

    Isn't that a user choice in the control panel?

    Maybe I'm missing the link usually at the bottom of the page, but I don't see the option to do a simple reply without doing a "quote post" from someone's existing post in a thread.

    Also, is there a reason why the theme "color" is blue? Why not red? Also, is there going to be a specific icon link for easy posting of YouTube videos in threads? That seems to have been one of the more problematic issues with a good number of members who aren't very tech savvy.

    Overall, like the more open look of the board.

    Yep, got it.. I went Forum Actions ----> General Settings and cleaned it up. For some reason it defaulted back to 15 posts per page from my old settings which was 40. All set now. Thanks for your help.

    Why would I switch the site to red? We've been blue for over 10 years. Is there a law that says every Van Halen web site has to be red? I'm glad we aren't like everyone else that way.

    I agree. Definitely no red. Dark blue is the way to go.
    .

    VH with Dave ('78-'84) - The best years....the "real" VH.
    VH with Sam ('86-'96) - Incredible era....."We have renamed this town 'New Halen!'.
    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.

    One thing I have noticed, besides the missing Likes, (which is on your list):

    After reading a thread, there is not a quick way to get back to the same forum the thread was in. Before, if you were done reading a thread in Non Music (for example) you just clicked on the "Non Music" forum title on the forum navigation button on the bottom of the page and it would go right back to the non music forum. Now, when you click on the non music forum title on the navigation bar, it drops down to show all forums and you have to scroll to the non music forum and select it (Which is more clicks, longer navigation)

    Make sense?
