This new design is funky as hell. Well done to the designer.

1. Extra Categories
2. Thread titles in the title meta (Google is now my Silverstripe Q&A)

No one can accuse the SS team of ignoring community suggestions.


Edit: One pedantic thing, the "Help" menu item is highlighted whilst the forum is currently open.

Looks great and very clean and slick, but did you know the "Reply" and "Subscribe" buttons look broken on FF3. They are not vertically aligned correctly. Looks like a float problem.

EDIT: Attached a screenshot

EDIT 2: There is also a noticeable color difference from the gray in the logo and the gray below it and when you go to hover it from the bottom it ".org" to "Home" flickers a few times (looks like if you hover the very bottom of the logo image where the two grays meet) and it looks like gray from the logo gets longer.

OscarGodson: Thanks for the feedback. We've been tweaking the styling for the forums. Noted the logo as well. Thanks!

Nice one, The design is great, the font sizes and the line heights are perfect!

The forums are more easy to use now.

Nice work!

Nice work.

Is possible to have a quick reply in the bottom like in vbulletin foruns ?. In long posts we have to navigate to the top to make the reply and for quicker answer it will be better to have the field already open.

Thank you,

Paulo Santos
