1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    You've probably noticed by now that the site redesign has gone live. We've changed quite a few things, and as always, we will need to iron out a few things here and there.

    We've changed 'Men's Clothing' (which was always sort of a 'duh' and vague forum title) to 'Classic Menswear' which we think more accurately describes the subject matter.

    Other than that, I will quote from the 'preview' announcement:

    1) a khaki and black color scheme which is more attractive easier on the eyes;
    2) Special fonts that add to the character of the forum with a Verdana body font and fewer font sizes, making hours and hours of reading and posting easier and more enjoyable
    3) a more intuitive top navigation bar.

    Everything was done with the user experience in mind.

    Oh, and we even included a "classic view", configurable from your account settings, if you feel nostalgic for the "Sparta!" colors.


    To switch to the 'classic view':

    Click your name in the upper right corner, and then click "Account Details".

    From there, scroll down to the bottom and find the dropdown entitled "Visual Preferences". Select "Styleforum Blue", click save, and you're off to the races.

    We hope you enjoy the new look. (et apres cette poste, le deluge.)

    Interface is nice - gonna take time getting adjusted, its kinda hard to make out the differences between posts as both colors are very light. Nice though.

    Any estimate on when you guys will be fixing the filter on the B&S forum. It's a royal pain searching through it these days...

    It's kind of blinding and difficult to read some of the new fonts. I'll give my eyes some time to adjust.

    (Appreciate all the hard work, just being honest)

    Looks good. Also glad that there is a mobile version. However, I would really love to get working Tapatalk support for the forum. It has tons of issues from not showing quotes right to not going to the right post, missing images etc. Is that coming anytime soon?
