Just a heads up.

If you use rss you gotta update your feed like below for it to work again.

http://www.slapmagazine.com/index.php?type=rss;action=.xml

you can add ";limit= (number from 5-255)"  to the end to increase the amount of posts in your feed. default is 5

my old feed had something before the /index.php that isnt there anymore.

Can't see rep or post count for anyone on mobile, was that intentional? Not the biggest deal.

Is there anyway to deactivate the mobile layout permanently, I'm using chrome on a Samsung for what it's worth. I just prefer the look better from my computer and would like to have the site look that way on my phone.
In the Chrome menu on mobile I checked the box labeled "request Desktop Site" and that worked for me, does that work for you?
Hi, thank you for you work. The changes are subtle and not too shocking in my opinion. I think I like it.
I wondered where was the updated topics and unread thread sections?
This is at the bottom of the homepage now.
I'm only getting the option to go to the forum section I'm currently in when I click the drop down menu on mobile. I attached a screenshot. iPhone 5 iOS 10.

What's the status on old articles on the site?

Thanks Nick! Looks great!
I have them in a section updated on the site, but they are all super broken cause no one is updating/maintaing links/images etc... I am trying to figure out if it is worth putting up a 50% broken portion of the site, what do you guys think?

I just added it back down by the report to moderator link at the bottom of each post.  Also, there is now a manage buddy/ignore list in your profile as well.

No chance Simon Woodstock's account was accidentally "lost" in translation, is there? Because that would be a shame.

Would like avatars also. Also the colors between posts are too similar IMO. Old way was more clear where it all changes from one post to another. Now it's all a bit of a mess on mobile especially. Also getting to the unread link on mobile was difficult. After clicking on my avatar the drop down menu went behind the search bar, which made clicking the links a bit difficult.

Other than that, I like it. Seems much faster. 👍

Made some changes, but am struggling with the whitespace on the left now, anybody got any creative solutions?

The text on the dark mode needs to be brighter. Right now there is not enough contest.

Make it white or like 5% black.

And I don't like how the threads are in grey boxes with grey text. Grey on grey is no good.

The teal color is bad too.

In the 24 hours since the switch it's gotten much easier on the eye. Good work.

Feel free to tell me what you don't like, and we can work on it.  I have been here for 10+ years myself so I have almost as much in the game as you do (even though your profile says you registered in 2011 I'll give you the benefit of the doubt that you have switched accounts).

i deleted my moderator account in 2010. The layout of the last board was perfect. The self contained posts with alternating colors are distracting and it just looks ugly

I am all for making an alternative theme available to you guys who are unhappy with this look and feel.  If you guys can wrangle the unhappy people together to agree on an alternative from here:
https://custom.simplemachines.org/themes/
I will install it and make the necessary modifications to it. Let me know in this topic if/when you guys come to a consensus, or if you guys have any questions by responding with a link to the topic in this topic.

The overall readability is much better, but I think the links still show up in Black. I'd make them white or the new light blue color you chose for the board titles.

Sorry had a coding mistake, that was already in there but not working.  Fixed.

Also for the Dark Theme guys, once we worked everything out with the tweaks I can make the theme a permanent choice you can make in your profile.

Still getting used to it, but thank you for all the hard work, I know it's a lot.

Someone earlier mentioned the drop down menu on mobile only lists the page you're currently on--that's still the case, but I did notice that if you click it again, all the options show up, so there's something a little buggy there still.

I am not sure still what this means, this is what I see on the drop down menu on mobile.  What are you missing from here?

Can you enable embedding from tumblr?

Also, I see that I can't gnar or kook when on the site on my iPhone, or see rep/post count. Tried requesting the desktop site, but it didn't do anything.
