I just had figured that the site was changed due to the latest thing, THE SNART PHONE! Every other web site has changed due to the SP. I sure hope it won't happen here.
They.. you mean me?
i do wish the effects of the settings i was playing with were properly labeled.. because that was NOT intentional.
Yes, one of the things we will be doing is updating ES so that it is smartphone compatible. Many people are using the endless sphere facebook page over this forum these days, because of our smartphone incompatibility. Even though i started the ES Facebook page a long time ago.. i don't like facebook.. and i want more people to be here..
We needed smart phone capability years ago.. i am working on correcting that, but i am not interested in pushing some 'new and improved' system that makes desktop look horrible, because it's a huge mistake to cripple the better computing device.
Currently, well over 50% of what browses the web is a smart phone. That can't be ignored.
Hopefully you don't remove it, too; I need it for my browser's customizations to work so I can read the forum (especially since the "minimal" or "text only" theme is now gone.
I use(d) that one whenever I have trouble reading pages in subsilver2 due to people's formatting/etc).
Sorry that i had to remove the minimal/text only theme. That theme does not exist in phpbb3.2, so it was removed as part of the preparatory work so that less things get broken after the transition. This painful process will also have to happen with our modifications to the board software too, but that has to happen after the fact, not before

(when it was no longer available at the freakbikenation forum before it died, I wasn't able to read/post very often anymore; was just too hard and took too much time).
I have bad news for you, then. Our 2 candidates for a forum upgrade are phpbb3.2 or vanilla forums. In either case, the themes are going to have dramatically different html tags.
You are an important member here and i will see what can be done to accommodate you after the upgrade. Maybe i have to make you a custom theme variant. We'll talk when the time comes.
