We made custom mods to the layout, so we need to apply and test all mods with all themes and maintain these...maybe later, it would make sense, for those who prefer the old ProSilver layout over the new Absolute v3.

No idea if it was already mentioned, but the the default search box shows 'Search...' in white letters,
with a darkblue background, but if you type something in this box directly it is black on darkblue ;) (thus unreadable)

Of course it works after using the lense symbol or the advanced search, because then you type black text into white.

No issues on desktop, but on mobile (android) I have the following issues with formatting.

1. The page goes outside the screen (which happened with older site also), which can usually be fixed by zooming out, but I cannot zoom out on diagrams.
2. Too much white space. Maybe others like it.

I auto-logged in for the first time today. Not bothered to do any cookie deletion either. Looks like it seemlessly registers and uses password from the old system.
Congrats on work.

FYI:

Implemented some restrictive firewall settings, n connections per m seconds, need to observe further and fine tune...

normal usage of the website of an single user should not be affected, but companies and proxy-server with many users sharing the same IP might trigger the firewall settings.

Foe list is working for me:

Any details?
Foes are users which will be ignored by default. Posts by these users will not be fully visible. Private messages from foes are still permitted. Please note that you cannot ignore moderators or administrators.

Seems to have fixed itself, or actually, maybe one can only block people when one is logged in and I’m occasionally on the forum having been logged out (timed out or something). Cancel.
