Hi Chris,

Attached is a screenshot of a phpbb admin panel
Could you explain to me where the following items as shown by the arrows are on the new platform ???

How are we to give you feedback on the entire software when half of it is either missing or locked out to us, Those items could very well have bugs that we could be finding.

As you can also see the wordwrap is absolute rubbish on this software, whats the point in having all that blank space on the right if the text does not even go to the edge of the page. Also no way of changing the font, size or colour .....

Most of those are not currently part of freeforums, and never have been.

PHP info, jabber settings, etc... have never been part of freeforums. Freeforums is a modified version of PhpBB, and so is the new version.

Email settings: Remember, there was a discussion about this in the forum here. Sender is not [email protected] and heavy complaints were launched about this, This will not automatically be the email of the forum founder so you don't need that page.

Styles are still being discussed.

Does this mean that the styles that you currantly have are going to stay. I ask because on thursday I was able to change the style that I had at first to the currant one. So forgive me for being confused since Demon Shine posted yesterday asking where they were on his site and your saying that styles are still under discussion. I can get into the styles through the Forum Appearance section on the first page of my ACP

For styles, something like 10 to 20 would be enough. More is bringing confusion, less bring frustration :)

I'm stumped. Exactly where are you? You *are* looking on the new version, right?

You can choose the forum appearance, forum by forum, when you create one section. There doesn't seem to be a forum setting that enable a general style

How odd, so you could have all the boards looking different, but no single way to change the global template ?
