I quickly fixed the mobile avatar issue, will work on other issues momentarily 

Not so good on mobile! 

So, let's see.

It seems mobile view is not quite sorted out yet. Profile pics are offcenter on desktop too, as if maybe that resize from 150 to 120 wasn't necessary after all.

 

Clicking the titles in Unread Content doesn't bring you to the first unread post, only the little circle or star next to it does that again.

Probably nothing to do with the update, been the same before that, but the new subforums Jay recently created don't show up in the upper quick access tab or the mobile sidebar.

Possibly just personal preference but I find it weird how the usernames are such a different (and bold) font to everything else.

 

Would probably need heavier layout tweaking and box resizing if possible but the upper half the screen is taken up by anything but the actual relevant topic list in some screens like unread content, even more on mobile.

Some threads have this weird sidebar with statistics, and select popular posts and images with no way to look at them in context.

The edit button is hidden under the top right 3 dots, not next to the quote button.

A tad strange that the blue bar's text is a superior white on the left but a less legible dark grey on the right.

Yep came here to post the same thing about the profile pics

 

Only having that issue on mobile (iPhone) though, the layout is fine on desktop but yes the pics are off-center

 

The new "1 month later... 2 weeks later...." thing between posts is weird, not a fan but whatevs

Huh.  I'm stumped on this one.  Can't figure it out.

Is this any different now?

I think this is better on mobile now?  I don't see the problem on desktop

I like that sidebar!  I don't think it's "weird".  On mobile, it appears under the first post.

That is kind of annoying, but I don't think I can change it

Can you elaborate on this?

They still look kinda strange to me, a different font but too thick and bold. But again, just preferences, only really counts if enough people share it.

Well, just look up there. Either everything in the blue field should be white, including the grey "create", bell, envelope, username on the right, or these grey ones on the right should be in a lighter box.

By now I did find out you can go to those posts by clicking the date. It still restricts the actual posts in the topic to only 3 quarters of the screen all the way down even when it only appears on the top of the page. Probably could get used to that but not the greatest.

The topics would show up under "condensed/expanded", half the screen is wasted. Don't think you could hide "stream options" and "show filters" though.

If you change the "time period" from "365 days" to "anytime", that frees up some space.  I can't for the life of me find a way to make this the default option

I have control to make that wider based on the size of the user's own setup - IE, % of screen space.  I just set it to 85%.  I think this is preferable?

I think the old font in posts looked better. That is, the new font seems to be normal and the same size, but it is less convenient to read it, it seems smaller than it actually is. On the other hand, if you return the old font, it can look strange with the new design.
This is just my opinion.

Apparently, on my cell, I'm called "Fart".

UPDATE: Just installed a free dark theme if anyone wants to check it out!

:w00t:

 

Doesn't work great with the editor and some of these emojis but it could be a lifesaver for nightly mobile browsing!

Love it!

 

Interesting that it carries over between mobile and desktop, change it on one and it changes on the other. Whatever, it's easy enough to access.

How about a theme that looks like the quoted text. It's either bright white or black.

 

I can definitely install all the free themes I can find!

 

Just now, Drew said:

Can we get a Previous JWFan Theme?

 

What parts specifically do you wish weren't changed?  Are you only talking about coloring or something else?

The first thing that I didn't like was the green notifications.

Re: Thread stats
 

Cool addition, no problems with it save for the fact that it leaves a lot of grey space under it on the page and squishes posts (most noticeably longer ones) into what may as well be a newspaper column space. Is there any chance it could only appear, say, on the first page of a thread? 
 

Otherwise I'm sure we will all get used to this update in no time, as is always the case. Thanks for being so good about ironing out the wrinkles @Jay!

It was very skinny before, but I fixed things a while ago to be much wider now. You think it's still too skinny?
