If you go into the User Control Panel -> Board Preferences -> Edit Global Settings, you should be able to get the ISO standard format by using a custom format, and put 'c' in the box. Or perhaps 'Y-m-d H:i:s' or similar. Personally, I'm quite liking the "Less than a minute ago / ..." format, although sadly that doesn't seem to be a field you can use in Custom..

Thanks Counting_Pine.
Actually with the Year, Month (- Dec as now indicated) and date it is okay. It is the USA format that is confusing especially when the day is 1 to 12.

roook_ph, it should be possible to edit or remove the website address on the Profile tab in the User Control Panel. And then hit Submit afterwards, that should do the trick.

It'll be fine when we get used to it.

Is there any way of putting in the header area of the forum some links back to the FB Main Page, and possibly other key sites?

Well done v1ctor and whoever else helped with the changeover.

For the forum, IMO the color selection for code blocks provides too little contrast, making the code hard to read, and the control panel provides no way to change this.

@ Counting_Pine
I have now set the date and time as suggested - Using Y-m-d H:i - and it is now displayed perfectly in the ISO standard.
Thanks again.

Is there an equivalent command to the previous one 'expand/compress' for code window?

Nice job, guys !
Unfortunatelly used www site color layout is not too much friendly to my eyes, maybe I am starting with grayscale eye troubles.Is here a possibility to change www layout to bigger contrast with dark background, or directly to previous ? All this is too light, sorry if i have something overlooked..

subsilver2 changes to a blue background (and prosilver as well):

The default is now much better. Thanks to whoever did it.

"User settings " is the goal, thx.

But without logging ?? Seems me the color of items from Topics list ( some kind of green ) is similar to indiferent background / background is OK ;) /; so dark brown / blue, black color would be more for contrast .

I agree, and in addition the foreground color and background color of the code window are independent of the board style (Maxthon/prosilver/subsilver2).

I like the new website, but its a bit too bright for me (seems to be a popular comment).

I know nothing of website design so forgive me if this is a silly question, but what are the chances of adding a custom color section to the board preferences? Something in addition to, but separate from the board style setting, so that the user could set their preferred text colour, background colour, etc. I do like having the option for changing the board style, though the default (Maxthon) is my favorite anyway, even if it is blinding bright :-)

Same advice for me, the green of the titles is too light, I preferred the blue before, and so is the grey of the texts, globally there is not enough contrast, and too much luminosity.
