I absolutely love the new appearance. I like how it literally fills up the whole screen of my laptop but at the same time, i have to try to adjust my eyeballs. It's something i will get used too but will definitely miss the old appearance as i was accustomed too for a long long time.

No cons...

All in all good upgrade but something i would like to see is a rapid respond system similiar to facebook with the ability to know when your message gets replied as if storm2k was your mutual friend.

Also something i would like to see when i log onto the storm2k message board is a list of the most recent activity/reply top to the most inactive ones bottom so that i don't waste my time looking through the forum for the latest reply.

It doesn't exactly work at this moment, but there is a Active topics link that, in theory, lists the posts that have been most recently replied to. The link appears at top left.

I do like the new look, but is it possible to have a display option where the Author info is back on the left-side of the page?

I like the auto-image resize but I'm wondering if there's a way to click to view the fullsize image.

Example image

Can we get spoiler tags please?

Spoiler tags will help with bandwidth issues that certain members face when they browse threads because of the posted weather pictures/gifs.

Spoiler tags just hide things; it's still loaded.

For me, the new board is okay except for the position of the posts within topics. The post is on the left while the avatar/user info is on the right. Is there any way to switch the two's positions (basically what it was in the older layout), perhaps as a user preference?

Another small issue.

Using URL tags no longer opens a new window or tab to view the target site.

When using "New posts" and "Unread posts", on the resulting page, the membernames are larger and more prominent than the thread titles.

I hope this is the correct place to ask this...but ever since the upgrade, I cannot see a single thread or forum on my Tapatalk app :(

Should I use another app like Forum Runner for example...which does support phpbb?

Not sure if they are working on tapatalk support or not but try going directly to the web page on your phone. This new version is quite mobile friendly and faster than tapatalk, at least for me.

Why is there an ad at the bottom of the page with a Russian domain?

Active Topics? There is a link near the top of the page, left side. The new board software seems to need some more statistics before this page works correctly but right now there are two threads showing up.

Zuma?

Part of the skin author credit, but still an ad.

The active topics feature should be functional. Just had to enable the functionality on multiple forums. So, over time as the system crawls the forums and archives data into the database, this feature should begin revealing pages that are considered active.

http://www.storm2k.org testing the URL tags.
