I like the new format, but what happened to the "new post" button?

I found my User Control Panel and on the Board Preferences, under My Board Style, I picked the AllanStyle-SUBSILVER board skin, which looks much more like the old board. New posts is on the right side. I have not found where to move the poster details and avatar to the left side of the posts...

Ctwo, try subsilver2, that seems to be a new addition to the User Control Panel, it'll move the Member info and Avatar back to the left.

Yes, that's the one. Now the update seems transparent.

After a couple minutes browsing the new posts, I had to go back and switch to one of the other skins to convince myself that the board was actually updated.

Smoothest board update I've ever experienced!

For that you can thank Mike, and the generosity of the readers. The changes made were more expensive than they could have been, and Mike spent a lot of his valuable time assuring that the upgrade was functional before making the board active. Readers contributed greatly by stepping up to the plate and donating funds, to offset the increased cost. We benefitted greatly, as the board is now much faster and there are added features that make it far more user friendly than it used to be.

It should be noted that this board has been supported financially solely by Mike until the latest upgrade. I'd like to thank him for his generosity, as it has provided for many years, a place for all of us to gather and exchange views, all on his dime.

Thanks, Mike!

Harold

This is a team effort remember!
Members of the board are active and friendly!
Volunteers keep up with everything!
Without everybody working together, we would not have a nice place.
Keep up the good work everybody!
