    Awesome!! Looks sweet! Thanks for all the hard work, xyd! Are Acceptus getting their bar back? Also, are you going to implement "thanks" or keep the "likes"? Sorry ifI missed this.

    Thanks everyone!

    @Holla in the top right of the navigation bar is where I moved them:

    wn.

    Is that what you were talking about?

    Just wanted to come in here and tell you how great the site is looking! This new theme is very clean and easy to look at. I would have to say this is the best forum experience I have seen from any site that I have been a part of. Keep up the great work, its appreciated :)

    Yes, the postbit (area under the avatar in threads) is where most Firefox-related occurred and I disabled them temporarily while fixing them - that's why the postbit is kind of empty atm.

    Still debating the thanks/likes phrasing.

    The new theme is much easier to read, thanks! Also looking forward to the dark theme too.

    Is there still a way to mark a sub-forum read? I haven't found that option yet on the new theme.

    I think that many of us are waiting for the Mark Read function to reappear.

    Just wanted to say, THANK YOU! The contrast in this theme is a huge improvement and makes it a lot more readable.

    We all know you are working like a mad man, but I totally forgot what the "original" theme looked like.
    But all i know is I love the "original:" look of RDF ..But really cant remember what it looked like lol.
    Any flashbacks @xydrine

    Yeah that seems to be missing.

    Also, the constant “Draft saved” notifications cover up the last line of a reply including often over the text you’re typing if you’re at the end of a line. At least now the floating “Enable Chat” bubble stays out of the way where it belongs! :)

    I disabled some of the controls - this is one of the ones which were included - due to the Firefox stuff. Just now getting over a bad migraine (happening less frequently but still happening) and getting back to where I was with the changes for the forum. Should have some stuff pushed live later today for you all.

    Just some nostalgia.

    Yep definitely. Now I'm touching up all the issues/small details (stats under the avatars, security level indicators, general theme fixes, etc).

    Also have a real big announcement coming this week regarding our mobile apps. We will be replacing them using a native framework and they aren't related to tapatalk in any way so we'll soon finally be able to break the chains of that (thank God), which will be great for using RDF on mobile devices, even though the new theme is very mobile friendly.

    Nice theme! I knew you'll love XenForo. Way way better than VB4. Once XF2 gets more polished with majority of add-ons being compatible, I can see it'll look even better here in the future.

    The only thing I suggest is the reduce of whitespace in forum posts. Currently in the .XenBase .message .messageContent {} css block, it contains the min-height property of 260px. If that is removed, I think it'll look better. Lots of posts with 1 line or sentence take up lot of vertical unnecessary space, meaning we'll need to scroll down more or more often just to read the next set of posts.

    Before:
    upload_2017-12-11_15-29-4.

    After:
    upload_2017-12-11_15-28-23.
