Nice new forum look

A couple suggestions:
-Add some color to alternating panels in main view, just like alternating color in rows of a table makes it easier to view.
-'Principal Discussion Forums' (as in 'principal topics')

Emoticons are back!

New Website. I was like WTF??!!!???

Next I will find out the UK will have a female PM and we are out of the EU.

Good work James (if it was you!).

Re: Nice new forum look

Congrats with going live with the new look!

A cosmetic note: when I post a reply to a thread (just now in the tech forum), the site says I posted it 2 hours ago. Could be related to time zones.

Re: Nice new forum look

it'll take some time to figure out images and links (and https links?)

Re: Nice new forum look

Maybe something is wrong with me today, but I can't figure out how to go to the next page (or maybe it's my browser - chrome).

Some more suggestions:

That's the way the old forum worked and is almost always where you want to get to.

-agree with EBal's confusion. Some simple single page forward/back navigation would be helpful.

Re: Nice new forum look

Very Nice, but I am not sure the forum has got green light yet. Need buttons to move from page to page?

Nice LaTeX works well also (not the cod box, just directly): testing: $e^{i\pi}$  Larger:  $e^{i\pi}$

$G=\frac{l_p^2c^3}{\hbar}$

More testing :  $\frac{G}{c^4}=\frac{1}{G\frac{m_pm_p}{l_p^2}}$ where $m_p$ is the Planck mass.

\begin{eqnarray}
R_{\mu v}-\frac{1}{2} g_{\mu v} R &=& \frac{8\pi G}{c^4}T_{\mu v}  \\
R_{\mu v}-\frac{1}{2} g_{\mu v} R &= &\frac{8\pi}{G\frac{m_pm_p}{l_p^2}}T_{\mu v} \\
\end{eqnarray}

Test

Testing the new Emoticons combined with built in LaTeX functions, wow this is much better than expected (Nice programming): (use the code box folks)

We just need a built in true random number generator, so we can run live MC.

Re: Nice new forum look

curved bracket $x^2$  or USD inside square brackets $x^3$ for inline math

slash + square brackets or double USD for display math, optionally with a LaTeX environment in it

\begin{align} x^2 &=1 \\ 1 &= x^2 \end{align}

Re: Nice new forum look

Thanks for all the feedback.
We are working on the navigation, that's a bug that appeared out of nowhere.

Re: Nice new forum look

Pagination seems to be back now. It will show at both the top- and bottom-right of the thread page when there are more than 10 posts.

More that industrial anti-climb, anti graffiti and very definitely anti#hashtag!

Re: Nice new forum look

What a shiny new post-EU skin.

I do hope this new version also comes with upgraded performance.

Thanks for all your efforts to improve Wilmott.com!
