Things have changed, the software that runs the forum needed a small upgrade, which failed horribly, leaving the forum broken. I decided the best option was to jump a version from 3.0.12/14 versions to the very new 3.1.15 (note the one in the middle is quite major!)

The look and feel of the site, which is called a 'style', from the older versions do not work on newer ones, so I grabbed a few styles until I found one that look like it could be trimmed and weeded to become Ish like. So here it is!
It is much better for viewing on tablets and mobile devices, google also likes this new style, which will help more people find us.

any issues with the new style let me know. :thumbright:

It's fine now it's not so orange. It doesn't hurt to have a refresh every now and then. While having to search for familiar buttons etc I've been rediscovering things I'd forgotten we had. Familiarity breeds laziness in my case.

there has always been Orange in the Ish colour set. (but I agree, the starting point was far to orange)
