    So its there where you said but when i try to change the style i get an error message saying "Email addresses must match"

    So i retyped the same email address and it still returned the same error message.

    Usually this style setting should be where Chris said, at the bottom left when logged in

    ie. without going into user settings.

    Bit of a facelift and a nip & tuck here and there

    Well the board is owned by Rochen, so it's their call where we go etc. I haven't heard any plans as such and I think they're pretty happy where we are

    Click on the message title (Re: Hi) and then scroll down to the txt entry box at the bottom. You won't see a Reply button because it's not needed

    If you're still having trouble finding it, I'll post some screen shots

    I think that was available on older versions of vBulletin. Doesn't look like you can change that setting now.

    On the plus side, it seems like when I click on a thread, it immediately "shoves" the screen down to the first post. Not exactly the same thing I know,

    Unfortunately, it wasn't possible to retain the previous style as it was built for a very old version of vBulletin and is not compatible with the current version. As TopHatter says we will see what we can do given some time to get a new custom style designed.

    We will absolutely try to make that happen, or at least as close as possible with the current vBulletin release and tools.

    This will be the cause of the 406 errors which we will get resolved.

    Thanks folks.
    Makes sense there had to be something else that changed to cause it

We just need to ensure it is licensed open source or if it is not we can acquire a license to use it.
    Just having the old ones back is fine with me.

    Getting the old look back would be even better.

    Very little i would change with the previous look & feel.

    Good balance of form & function.
