Responsive forum theme available now

If there's one thing that hasn't changed much, if at all, in the last 20 years, it's the default style of forum software themes. For as long as we've had this forum, we've used the preinstalled default theme as the only option, with a few little mods we've made like the Cloud City images in front of the board name on the main page.

Now you have a choice!

This kind of started with people who don't like using the Tapatalk app on their phones/tablets. This forum, when used through a web browser on a cell phone, is really difficult to read and navigate. Your webmasters are now happy to present you with an option other than Tapatalk if you want to improve your browsing experience on mobile devices. This new theme is also available on computers; in fact, if you switch to the new theme, any device that you log on to the forum with will automatically use the new theme.

Quick recap of what these look like on a cell phone (this is an iPhone X, so not the biggest or smallest screen out there)

All are viable options. You choose what works best for you! You can always switch back and forth, too.

Here are four quick and easy steps to switch to the new theme, if you so desire.

Big thanks to Steve for helping iron out all the image kinks and to our forum beta testers (Scott T, Josh B, Ralph, AJ, Luke, Missy) who've probably forgotten that they assisted with this a LONG TIME AGO IN A GALAXY NEAR, NEAR TO US but who are appreciated all the same!
