Also, the 'Unread post since last visit' used to be sorted into categories, and now isn't - I think I prefer it in categories.

Just took a break from my GTA: San Andreas gaming spree to write/hard code that functionality back in, because I'm so fucking badass. If it looks funky/unstyled, clear your cache. Enjoy!

The recent topic messages at the bottom of the home page used to point to which board the topic is in..can that be re-added?

Fixed, I think.

@jrgp you must have a backup of old version, could you restore it to somewhere so I can check the differences and fix them all.
No backup?

No, they all have. Clear your cache.
Wee, it works! But I lost all my "Remember Me". It's so annoying to put these all passwords back...

I think quotes have a different background color.
I remember the old design had alternating post colors (one a bit lighter and one darker).
Now, it's okay! It's not lighting my eyes so much anymore :P

No backup?
It's even okay, now...

I have a database dump from before the upgrade, but I don't have access to the forum's files prior to the upgrade, which might still be in FLAB's private backups.

I wasn't the one who picked them out in the first place. I'm accepting suggestions on better ones, though.

One post before you had no stars. I think those are really cool and immortal... If more people think like you, maybe they'll be romeved...

WYSIWYG editor is just some kind of joke. Seriously. What You See Is What You Never Get in this case. Manipulating with text controls can drive you insane, especially when you enabled bold/size (best both at once) and now you try to disable them. Furthermore, preview shows you a wonderland, when you post, it turns into some bloody hell.
I didn't test wysiwyg editor in the old version though so i can't tell you if it was better or not.

Oh, also font is different. And i liked old one more.

I think the padding is still off, needs more space all around each post. i.e. not enough space above and to the left of the posters name.

1) The wysiwyg editor is exactly the same, except the buttons for the bold/italics/etc look slightly different.
2) The forum font didn't change either.

I believe the toggle view button toggles between wysiwyg and bbcode text views.
