    ... was pleased to find that scrolling to the bottom of the page reveals 'recent topics' which amounts to the same thing (I think).

    As I'm (usually) on here daily 'Recent Topics' at the bottom of the page is where I've always gone, that said, if it has been a busy posting day or a while between visits so the whole 'Recent Topics' list shows as 'new' then I simply start at the top of the 'Home' list of topics and work my way down each topic showing as having new posts. :027:

    Changes happen, we, as humans are all to comfortable in the old or familiar.

    Such reactions happen far to often with posters here on just buying the bike (seat too hard/uncomfortable, not enough power, brakes are (*&^(&*, need to repalce the brake lines with stainless steel braided and so on). But oddly enough they don't seem to go out and ride, learn to commune with the new ride. Its different, but what else did you expect. you have just changed your bike for some reason and now you are whinging, sorry complaining that the new bike is NOT the same as the old bike that you just traded in for some reason.

    I doubt Admin made change for the heck of it. they have multiple bike related forums and it must bne an effin nightmare to maintian if they all have different codebases.

    As far as I can see. The changes are not that significant. Functionality is no different. So I would expect everyone to get familar with any changes very quickly.

    Can't really see any issues or significant appearance changes with desktop version on a PC. Overall it seems tidier but the mobile version for the phone is much better, IMHO.

    As for viewing recent or unread topics, my default forum links on PC & phone are set to 'unread' and 'recent'. That way I catch all new posts across all sections.

    i.e.
    https://www.tiger800.co.uk/index.php?action=unread

    https://www.tiger800.co.uk/index.php?action=recent


    I did find a funny last night in the messages section that I've reported to Admin:-

    Since the update, links in personal messages don't seem to work when viewing in mobile mode. Normally, when clicking on the message subject in the Personal Messages Inbox the page / screen will jump to that message but this doesn't seem to work on my phone when in mobile mode. However, when I change the phone settings to desktop view the links work fine. This is the same for the recent update over at the Trophy forum, which makes sense if they're using a unified layout / structure across forums.

    Oh and I seem to have notifications turned back on for topics that I've replied to. They were off before so I've been in to my profile and fixed that.

    I prefer it - looks similar to a few other forums that I was used to (Versys 1000 forum, BMW S1000XR Forum) Typeface seems bigger and much easier for my failing eyes and generally cleaner layout - good job Admin   :047:

    A big shout out to admin for maintaining this site , free access to information is not to be sneered at.
    If admin feels that the forum needs changing , whether ease of maintenance or just because theyíre bored so be it.😀
