Loving it mate. Well done to all involved. It’s super fast too.
One request - is there an option for a “dark mode” ?

edit: sorry just read your request for no requests lol

Actually, I've made a dark style available but it is under development. Don't report issues here, I will look at it over time. It's probably usable now though. Select "GPG Dark (under development)" from the footer.

I am not good at adjusting to new things, but I appreciate things have to change and adapt. I will wait until I have worked things out before I comment. The one thing I do have to point out is that I find it harsh on my eyes. This may well be to do with being colour blind. The red seems to leap out of the pc. The white writing on the Red background blurs slightly and seems to be on the move. I didn't have this on the old site colours.

THank you to those who put all the work in, I am sure once I get used to the layout I will appreciate how good it is. Just the colours I struggle with.

Good job with the new version of the Forum. Thanks to everyone involved in making it a smooth transition.

I have one small piece of feedback.

In the 'Brentford First Team Matches' page, is it possible to re-arrange so the actual threads are at the top of the page? 99.9% of the time we're going to that forum sub-section to read the latest threads, so I would say that the past thread sub-sections bit can be moved elsewhere (maybe to the bottom, if that's possible).

Don't know, will look at it but later.

It's a bit like those times you go into your local supermarket and find they have changed the aisles around. It's a pain at first, especially if you are in a hurry, but if you have time to browse you find things you didn't know were there before. It's a welcome change.

The site looks amazing! Well done to all involved! 🙌

I was also intrigued by the dark mode, but have switched back as there's a few items which appear the same colour as the background. I'll give it a go another time or when you do come to work on it. (y)

One thing on the mobile side, I usually go via new posts, click on the title, goes to last unread post. That's working fine, however when I go "back" it doesn't take me back to the new posts, it takes me back to the full forum and then I have to hit the lightning button again. Am I doing something wrong?

Other than that it looks awesome, well done to everyone involved

My initial issues were solved when I realised I wasn't logged in. Just a thought if you are having any problems with viewing new posts etc.

Have you tried hitting the lightning button first, rather than back?

Thanks for the update. This is much better. Plus my armchair remains the same colour.

Top work Nana and mods. (y)

On desktop, I noticed my username, the last letter drops down onto a second row as too many characters. Not sure if that can be changed? It’s ok on mobile as it runs across the top as appose to the side, if that makes sense.

Also I tried to send an image in a direct message but I could only upload an image with a link as appose to uploading from my device / pc.

I had problems remembering passwords and ended up setting up a new registration. Is it possible to retrieve my old details and continue with my old account?

Your email address is different on your old account. If you PM me we can sort.

There is now a header log, same as the desktop. Only issue is that it takes up a lot more space so something I need to look at.

I can see it on the desktop. It could be smaller; could you right-align the text and middle it to the logo?

I have been hugely impressed with it, there is nothing I can't do as I could before and more user-friendly. So thumbs up from me (y)

Everything has gone blue. When did that happen?

Thanks, appears to be an issue only with Firefox for iOS. It’s fine on Safari.
We've deleted Firefox from our supported browsers, Apex issue apparently.
